New Delhi, Jan 20: Four people who were arrested on Wednesday morning in the Pathankot terror case have been sent to 15-day police custody. They are suspected to be associated with a terror outfit, have been arrested and are being questioned by a team of Delhi Police's Special Cell at Roorkee in Uttarakhand.

The four have been identified as Akhlaq, Osama, Mohammed Aziz and Mohammed Mehroz. They are likely to be brought to Delhi by Thursday and produced before a court.

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 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 Harya'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.
