After recovering explosives from outside the Ambala railway station, security agencies are now investigating whether it was meant for carrying out terror strikes in Punjab.

A joint team of Delhi and Haryana police found the explosives in a blue Indica car parked outside the railway station on Thursday after an intelligence tip-off received 10 days ago that a consignment carrying the substance was headed for a north Indian metropolis.

“We had inputs that a LeT module in Jammu and Kashmir was planning to strike in Delhi. Investigations were done and we found that the explosives were meant for Babbar Khalsa International and to be used in Delhi,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Arun Kampani said.
