Police arrest four men for planning to attack Indian capital

NEW DELHI, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- Indian police Thursday claimed to have arrested four men, with alleged links to Islamic State, for planning to attack strategic locations in the national capital.

"The four young men were nabbed from the northern state of Uttarakhand by a team of Delhi Police Wednesday. They have been brought to the Indian capital," a senior police official said.

"At the time of their arrest, all the four suspects were all reading propaganda materials about the Islamic State and bomb making," he added.

The national capital has been put on high alert, with French President Francois Hollande slated to visit India as the chief guest at the Republic Day parade on Jan. 26.

Intelligence agencies have already indicated that the Islamic State could target the Republic Day celebrations as the French President will be there.
