Three of the terrorists hail from Kashmir and two of them were identified as Mohammad Ayub and Shabbir. Incriminating materials and weapons were recovered from these terrorists.

DCP Special Cell Pramod Kushwaha said “Five persons apprehended following an exchange of fire in Shakarpur area of Delhi. Two of them are from Punjab, three are from Kashmir.
