The detained suspect, identified as one Akhlaq, is likely to be brought to Delhi by Thursday and produced before a court in New Delhi.

The suspects are believed to have been planning an attack at the ongoing Ardh Kumbh Mela in Haridwar, a police source said on Wednesday.

The Special Cell tracked down the suspects in a joint operation with a central intelligence agency and they are conducting search operations throughout Uttarakhand, the source said.

The detained suspect is also being questioned in connection with the recent terror attack at Punjab's Pathankot as he is believed to have links with terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed, the source said.

On Tuesday, the Special Cell of Delhi Police had arrested a person with suspected al Qaeda links from Nuh town in Haryana's Mewat district.

In a joint operation with a central intelligence agency, two persons were apprehended from there, of which one was arrested by the Special Cell, senior officials claimed.
