They have been suspended after a probe prima facie found them guilty of not collecting information about Khan at the local level, he said.

The suspected ISIS operative was found in possession with two pressure cooker IEDs which were ready and just needed to be activated with a timer, the Delhi Police had said after his arrest.

Delhi Police officials said he had planned to strike in the national capital on August 15, but could not do so due to heavy security arrangements.
