LAHORE The CIA Police on Monday claimed that they have arrested five terrorists including a would-be suicide bomber in the provincial metropolis, foiling a plot to attack a local hotel. Police sources claimed that intelligence agencies arrested the terrorists and later handed them over to the police for further investigations. The alleged suicide bomber had been identified as Abdul Baseer alias Qari Waqas said to be linked to Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan. The police also arrested his five accomplices including Mohi-u-Din alias Saif Ullah, Abdul Rehman Ghani, Sakhi Shah, Tehseel Khan and Dilawar Saeed. The police also recovered a suicide jacket, 26 hand-grenades, a suicide jacket and a cache of arms and ammunition. While addressing a Press conference, SSP Investigation Zulfiqar Hameed accompanied by SP CIA Umer Virk claimed that CIA Anti-Terrorism Squad arrested these terrorists. The arrested terrorists were planning to attack important installations in the City. The CCPO has announced cash prizes and commendatory certificates for the police team. Later, talking to the reporters, Qari Waqas, resident of Chitral, revealed that he went to Peshawar for study. 'I was also discharging my duties as Qari at a mosque in Jamrood, he added. AFP adds: Their target was a hotel in Lahore where some Americans were staying, SSP Investigation Zulfiqar Hameed said. They wanted large-scale death and devastation. Five terrorists were assigned to explode hand grenades and amid expected panic in the hotel, the suicide bomber was to blow himself up, he said. Police said the six were trained in Khyber and were captured following a tip-off. Hameed did not say when and how they were arrested. Police officer Waris Bhurwana, who was involved in the arrests, said police set up a checkpoint on the main highway from Peshawar in the northwest and intercepted a small Suzuki car outside Lahore last week. There were four people in the car, including a would-be suicide bomber, he said, describing the would-be bomber as 15 to 16 years old. Police recovered four hand grenades, five detonators and a jacket fitted with another 26 hand grenades. Two more suspects carrying hand grenades and following the Suzuki on a motorbike were also arrested, he said. Police also recovered four kilograms of hashish, he added. But officers angrily called a swift end to the news conference after a television reporter snatched away a hood, unmasking one of the suspects. If you behave like this we will not invite media in future, one police inspector said.
