Kashmiri militant Irfan Hussain Wani was sent to the Joint Interrogation Centre (JIC) and grilled by security agencies, including the Delhi Police, in connection with a terror plot of Al-Qaida linked Ansar Ghazwatul Hind (AGUH) to disturb the Independence Day celebrations in Delhi, PTI reported.
Wani was arrested on Sunday night from Jammu and eight grenades were seized from his possession.
PTI quoted sources in the security establishment as saying that Irfan was sent to the JIC at Miran Sahib here and was being interrogated about terror plots and sleeping cells.
They said two officers from the Delhi Police had also joined the interrogation and they wanted to take Wani to Delhi for further investigation.
As per the sources, Wani was in touch with top AGUH militants and his mobile, which was seized by the police, was sent for decoding to the national capital.
They said he had given some leads about the person to whom he was supposed to deliver the bag containing grenades.
He was reportedly staying in a hotel in Jammu and was given the bag and some cash by member of the sleeper cell, whom the security agencies were tracking, they said.
