The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today i.e., December 26, 2018, has busted a new Islamic State (IS) inspired module based in Delhi and UP, which was allegedly in an advanced stage of preparing for attacks in the country.

The NIA carried out raids at 16 locations in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi to bust the module called ‘Harkat ul Harb e Islam’. The raids resulted in the arrest of five people and detention of 10 people.

The raids were carried out in collaboration with the Anti-Terror Squad of the Uttar Pradesh Police and the special cell of the Delhi Police. Sources said the NIA had been monitoring activities of the module for a long time.

Pistols, ammonium nitrate and material used for making improvised explosive device (IED) were recovered from their possession. Police have seized seven pistols with live rounds in Delhi and a pistol and a grenade from Amroha, UP.

Police claim that the arrested people were planning to attack headquarters of the Delhi Police, RSS office, among other places.

The five people were reportedly arrested from a madrassa in UP's Amroha. In Delhi, raids were carried out in Seelampur.
