Ranchi: Two youths were Sunday arrested for creating panic by pasting posters threatening blasts in this Jharkhand capital in the name of a "terror group", police said Sunday.
"Soaib Ansari, one of the arrested youth, created a terror group `Abdullah Muzzahuddin`," Senior Superintendent of Police Saket Kumar Singh told reporters.

"Ansari, a resident of Latehar district, works as a salesman. His father was killed by Maoists one year ago on charges of being a police informer. Ansari wanted to kill a few Maoist guerrillas," he added.

Ansari was arrested along with Mohammad Sajid from Hindpiri locality of Ranchi.

The Ranchi police got baffled early this week after a few posters found in the name of `Abdullah Muzzahuddin` threatened serial blasts in the city.
