NEW DELHI: The city police on Tuesday claimed that Lashkar-e-Toiba operative Abdul Subhan, who was picked up by the special cell last week, was planning to kidnap top corporate honchos to finance terror activities in the country.

Sources said Subhan’s modus operandi was to raise money through kidnapping to meet logistics for carrying out terror strikes.

Though the sources refused to divulge the names in the hit list of Subhan, they added that Subhan’s first task was to create an LeT module in the national capital. Special Commissioner of Delhi Police’s Special Cell S N Shrivastava said Subhan was in constant touch with LeT operatives from Pakistan.

A native of Mewat in Haryana, Subhan, 42, was nabbed by Special Cell on July 20.  During the  interrogation, Subhan allegedly told the Special Cell about his radicalisation activities of youths in Rajasthan, Haryana and Bihar.

Subhan was earlier arrested for terror activities in 2002, but was released in 2010. His name had cropped up earlier in January when the Delhi Police interrogated two imams from Muzaffarnagar, UP, in connection with an abduction in the region.

Subhan had allegedly asked the Imams to make inroads in the riot-affected region.
