This time the target was Hindon Air Force Base in Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, which is just 30 km from the Indian capital. But due to the alertness of the Indian Intelligence Agencies the terrorists' plan was foiled.
During the interrogation it was revealed by the alleged leader of the suspected JeM terror module, Sajid Ahmed was training as dancer to participate in the reality TV show. Police are tracking the call records of all the suspects. In addition, a special team of Delhi police officers have enlisted the services of cyber experts as all the suspected terrorists were communicating with their handlers in Pakistan, sources in the Delhi Police told Sputnik. Police are also trying to find out their other activities.
Sajid and his accomplices were planning a Pathankot- style terror attack at the Hindon Air Force Base but according to police they were in the initial stages of planning.
