SSP (Dehat) Dharamvir Singh said the police had been informed about the ATS raid, but had played no role in it.

Early on Thursday morning, the raid team led by ATS arrested Muhammad Fauzan and Muhammad Tanveer, who were on their way to the mosque for morning prayers. Barhapur police station SO Mukesh Kumar confirmed the arrests.

Eyewitnesses said the ATS had left their vehicles some distance off and had approached the suspects on foot.

According to Maharashtra ATS police suspect Nazim' s arrest is the main point in the operation because he is the only one who recruits new boys from India in ISIS.
