The Delhi Police has nabbed two suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed, terrorists, preventing a major terror attack on the national capital.

The terrorists were arrested from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi on Monday night.

The police recovered two semi-automatic pistols and 10 live cartridges from them.

The two terrorists have been identified as 22-year-old Abdul Latif Mir and 20-year-old Mohammad Ashraf Khatana from Jammu and Kashmir.

While Mir is a resident of Pala Mohalla in Baramulla, Khatana hailed from Hat Mulla village in Kupwara.

According to sources, police officials managed to arrest them after laying a trap near the Millennium Park in Sarai Kale Khan around 10.15 pm on Monday.

According to sources, the duo was planning to escape to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) via Nepal after carrying out the attack in Delhi.

Their earlier attempt to go to PoK was foiled by the Indian Army, sources said.
