The Special Task Force of the Kolkata Police on Monday arrested six Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) terrorists who were planning an attack in the city, as claimed by the police.

The police also retrieved laptops, fake documents, detonators and cell phones from the terrorists.

Five of them had been named in the National Investigation Agency (NIA) chargesheet for their alleged involvement in a blast in West Bengal's Burdwan district two years ago. 

"These terrorists were absconding after Khagragarh blast in Bardhaman. Three (of them) are of Bangladeshi origin and the other three of Indian (origin). Laptops, mobiles, fake documents, detonators recovered from the arrested terrorists," Vishal Garg from the Kolkata Police told reporters at a press conference in the city.

This is a developing story.
