Hyderabad: The five Islamic State (IS) inspired men, arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) last week, had planned to attack police stations across Hydearbad.

NIA officials had found an app on the mobile phone of the alleged main leader Ibrahim Yazdani, with a map that had pinned the locations of police stations.

Yazdani has reportedly told the investigators that he was asked by his handler Shafi Armar to use an explosive called Triacetone Triperoxide (TATP) to make the bombs. Notably, TATP was used to during Paris blasts.

The five youth, who were sent to judicial custody for 14 days on Thursday, are currently lodged in Cherlapally Jail.

Five of them were arrested. They are Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani, 30, Habeeb Mohammed, 32, Mohammed Ilyas Yazdani, 24, Abdullah Bin Ahmed Al Amoodi 30 and Muzaffar Hussain Rizwan, 29.

Besides police stations, the youth were conspiring to commit terrorist acts in various parts of the country. According to the agency, they were planning to target public places including religious sites and sensitive government buildings.

The NIA said it seized chemicals used in making explosives, two semi automatic pistols, an airgun with telescopic sight and shooting practice target boards.
