Indian Mujahideen Members Planned to Mail Poisoned Letters, Say Cops
New Delhi: Suspected terrorists arrested by the Delhi Police allegedly planned to send letters laced with poison to targets, the police has told a court in the capital.

The disclosure against the five suspected members of the Indian Mujahideen (IM) was outlined in the police's chargesheet filed earlier this month, which details the evidence against the accused.

The men were arrested on charges of running an illegal arms factory in Nangloi on the outskirts of Delhi which was discovered by the police in November 2011.

The police chargesheet says that during interrogation, two of the arrested men "disclosed that they had made efforts to make poison with the help of available chemicals such as magnesium sulphate, acetone and castor seeds...their purpose behind making poison was to attempt target killing by sending letters soaked with poison."
