Major terror attack foiled in Ambala;police seize explosives

Ambala, Oct 13: It could have been yet another deadly terror attack but was foiled after the Delhi Police in the course of routine operation found a car laden with explosives, detonators, timer devices and RDX. The police found 5kg of RDX in the vehicle. The car was found in the Ambala Cantonment railway station parking area. The NSG team and NIA teams have rushed to the spot.

The explosives were found after a joint operation by the Delhi police. The NSG team will look into the nature of the explosives used. They will also probe if the terror attempt has any connection with the Delhi High Court blast that ripped the capital on Sept 7, 2011.

There are also reports that the police acted on a tip-off that averted a major tragedy from playing out. Initial investigations suggest that the car had come from Jammu and Kashmir but had a Haryana registration number. The area has been cordoned off with investigators looking for clues to ascertain the criminals who planned the attack.

The police found a box of sweets in the car with a Jammu address. The investigative agencies are also not ruling out a cross-border terror angle in the probe as well.

More details awaited.
