Delhi: 2 suspicious bags found in Trilokpuri area

Highlights

  • Two suspicious bags found in Delhi's Trilokpuri area
  • The unattended bags were found near a Metro pillar
  • The incident comes just days after an explosive-filled bag was found at the Ghazipur Flower Market

Two suspicious bags were found unattended in Trilokpuri area of Delhi on Wednesday sending agencies into a tizzy. Bomb disposal squads were rushed to the spot to ascertain whether the bags contained any explosive material. Delhi is already on high alert in view of the upcoming Republic Day.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Priyanka Kashyap said a PCR call was received at the Kalyanpuri Police Station regarding two bags lying unattended near Metro flyover pillar number 59 in Trilokpuri. However, nothing suspicious was found inside the bag. 

The documents found in the bag were found to be that of a person named Somesh Gupta who has been called and further inquiry is on, she added. Items in the bags included laptop, mobile phone, personal care items and other documents, the DCP said.

Somesh Gupta, 23 is a resident of Peetampura who is working in a consulting company Gurgaon. He was coming with his brother Sidharth Gupta from Kotdwar (Uttrakhand) to South Extension for shopping. On way to the Barapullah, their bag was lifted by a 'thak-thak' gang. This incident happened at around 11:45 am today. They reported the theft at Nizamuddin police station and have examined at Kalyanpuri police station. Further investigation in the case is underway.

Laptop, mobile, personal care items and some other documents were found in the bag, reports said.

The incident comes just a week after recovery of an unattended explosives-filled bag being recovered at Ghazipur Flower Market. 

The NSG later informed the Delhi Police that the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) recovered the busy flower market had a timer device attached to it and had ammonium nitrate and RDX as its components.

The explosive used in the IED is suspected to be part of consignments dropped in Punjab and Jammu Kashmir by drones from Pakistan, officials said.

The seizures made in recent times and the use of RDX in the IED found at the market indicate towards Pakistani spy agency ISI's role, they said.
