NEW DELHI: A self-proclaimed cleric has been arrested by NIA officials for allegedly planning terror attacks in the country.        

Abdus Sami Qasmi, a resident of Seelampur here, was arrested from Uttar Pradesh's Hardoi district. He has been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into the conspiracy to form a terror organisation and to launch terror attacks in the country, NIA officials said.     

Adbus Sami has been delivering provocative and inflammatory speeches in the support of 'Caliphate', they said. He has launched a few websites wherein his speeches have been uploaded.
