Three suspects enter Hindon Air Force base in Ghaziabad: Reports

Ghaziabad: Just two days after, three persons with alleged links with terrorist outfit Jaish-e- Mohammed links were arrested by Delhi Police, three unidentified men were seen entering Hindon Air Force Station in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad district Thursday night.

Security officials went into a tizzy and continued search operation whole night. Though, no one has been held by the Air Force officials or the police, but the authorities have sealed the gates of the crucial air base and have asked all the staff to remain indoors.

Reports say that some people saw the three people entering the air base.

In a precautionary measure, two Kendriya Vidyalayas​ in the premises have been shut for the day.  

Notably, three members of terrorist outfit JeM, who were arrested following multiple raids at several places in Delhi and adjoining areas, had reportedly planned to attack Hindon Air Base and malls in Delhi/NCR.

The three with alleged "ideological leaning" towards the banned JeM were arrested here Tuesday night.

The three identified as Sajid Ahmad, Sameer Ahmed and Shakir Ansari were arrested while fabricating an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), official sources said.

The security of all key installations and government buildings has been beefed up after the arrest of 12 JeM militants.
