The Bangalore police have seized a cache of explosives from two Lashkar-e-Taiba militants who allegedly had planned to carry out a series of blasts in various software companies here.

We have seized 17 electronic detonators, 20 gelatine sticks, 120 gel sticks, three hand grenades, packets of iron pellets and books on Jehad,” police sources said on Saturday.

The two militants, Afsar Pasha and Irfan, associates of Abdul Rehman, a suspected top LeT militant, were arrested by the police on Friday in connection with the terror attack at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) campus in Bangalore on December 28.

The seizure was made following a detailed interrogation of Pasha and Irfan and the arms were found buried under soil at Chintamani in Kolar district.

Pasha was working as a mechanic at Chintamani, while Irfan was a moulvi from Uttar Pradesh and a resident of Mulbagal, they said.

Interrogations revealed that Pasha was involved in a bomb blast in Dhaka in 2003 and had planned to plant explosives in some of the software companies in Bangalore, police said
