Security agencies arrest al-Qaeda-linked terrorist in Delhi

Two alleged al Qaeda linked "militants" have been arrested in Delhi in different joint operations of central agencies, the Delhi Police and West Bengal police a week ahead of the Independence Day celebrations.

In a major development, security agencies arrested an alleged Al-Qaeda operative Syed Mohammed Zeshan Ali from New Delhi on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) arrested a suspected Bangladeshi terrorist associated with the same Islamic extremist group from Muzaffarnagar.

Ansar Bangla - which has an affiliation with al-Qaeda - is said to be involved in the hacking of atheists in Bangladesh. He is incidentally married to the sister of Kafeel Ahmed, the engineer from Bengaluru who carried out the Glasgow bombing of 2007.

Can Morata fill his shoes? Not much has gone right for Antonio Conte and the Blues since their title win last season. Chelsea have sold midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United and Diego Costa is also poised to leave.

Ali and his brother Syed Mohammed Arshiyan were allegedly operating from Saudi Arabia.

A senior police official said that the arrested terrorist has been identified as one Raza Ul Ahmed.

Police said that Abdullah was involved in preparing fake identities for terrorists, especially from Bangladesh, and used to help them find safe hideouts in India. Indian police have claimed that many members of the terror outfit have sneaked into India using forged documents.
