Mohsin Abraham Sayeed (26), a resident of Malad in Mumbai, was arrested at the Kashmiri Gate ISBT (Inter-State Bus Terminal) late last night by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police.

"We arrested IS suspect Mohsin Abraham on a tipoff and recovered Rs.85,000 cash from his possession", said Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep.

He said Sayeed was in touch with four Islamic State (IS) suspects who were arrested on January 19 in Haridwar district of Uttarakhand.

That takes the number of IS suspects arrested by Delhi Police to five. The arrest of four suspects - Akhlaq-ur-Rehman, Mohammad Osama alias Adil, Mohammad Azimu Shaan and Mehraj - in Haridwar district was based on specific information by central intelligence agencies.

They had plans to carry out bombings during the ongoing Ardh Kumbh pilgrimage in Haridwar, in Roorkee-Haridwar-bound trains, in Delhi and some parts of the National Capital Region (NCR).
