The Special Cell of the Delhi Police arrested two suspected terrorists, who are allegedly linked to terror outfit Islamic State of Jammu & Kashmir (ISJK).

According to Deputy Commissioner of Police Pramod Kushwaha, the duo identified as Parvez and Jamshed, hailing from Kashmir, were arrested from Jama Masjid bus stop near the Red Fort area on Thursday night.
