The Uttar Pradesh ATS has arrested two youths whose names had come up during the interrogation of some accused arrested earlier for having links with Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), an official release issued here said.

Those arrested have been identified as 28-year-old Aas Mohammed and 23-year-old Mohammed Haaris. Aas is a resident of Zahirpur village under Deoband police station limits in Saharanpur, while Haaris hails from Uttarkhand’s Haridwar district, the release issued by the Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) said on Thursday.

They were initially called for questioning and later arrested.

A few days ago, the UP ATS, as part of its campaign against radical elements, had arrested Luqman, Shahzad, Qari Mukhtar, Mudassir, Kamil, Alinoor, Nawazish Ansari and Mohammad Aleem who were active in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, associated with terror outfits AQIS and JMB.

On the basis of their interrogation, the ATS got inputs about these two and they were brought to the ATS headquarters for questioning from Saharanpur and were later arrested, the release added.
