Police killed two suspected members of the outlawed Jaish-e-Mohammed group in a park in New Delhi late Saturday, hours after explosives were seized in two separate raids and three people arrested. “The exact target would have been disclosed to them by Jaish headquarters a short time before the actual strike,” Joint Commissioner Niraj Kumar told reporters. “It would have been something spectacular like VIPs, symbols of national importance like the India Gate and Red Fort, something like that.” The raids in the capital came after security forces in Indian-controlled Kashmir said they had killed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s head of Indian operations, Ghazi Baba.
