UP: Terror attack on CRPF camp, 8 killed

A day after three Lashkar-e-Tayiba militants were arrested in Rampur for their alleged involvement in the January 1 attack on the Central Reserve Police Force camp, the special task force of Uttar Pradesh police on Monday arrested two more persons in this connection.

According to police sources, Gulab Khan, who was arrested on Monday, had offered his motor garage for storing the weapons used in the attack in which eight persons, including seven security personnel, were killed.

One of the arrested militants, Mohammad Sharif, had allegedly kept the weapons in Khan's garage, sources said.

The STF also arrested one Mohammad Kausar, a resident of Pratapgarh district, in whose house some of the weapons were also kept, sources said.

The two were produced before a district court in Rampur, which remanded them to judicial custody for 14 days.

The STF had arrested six LeT militants from Rampur and Lucknow on Sunday who had attacked the CRPF camp and were also involved in the 2005 attack at the Indian Institute of Sciences in Bangalore.
