In a major combing operation the National Investigation Agency busted a terror module believed to be affiliated to Islamic State. NIA nabbed 13 terror suspects during midnight raids conducted across the old city in Hyderabad and found four of them to be possible ISIS terrorists. This, the agency says they have done with the help of Hyderabad police. The agency recovered a large haul of arms and ammunition from the suspects that included the deadly ammonium nitrate and electronic goods used in bomb making.
The rest of the nine persons may be released after questioning as the agency found that they may not have played key roles in the module.

They were found doing recce of a few busy places like Charminar, religious places and a government building. The suspects, for now, have been charged with creating communal disharmony.
