Bomb found and defused in Delhi, India
Frame: India Today
In the east of Delhi, police sappers found and defused an improvised explosive device, reports the newspaper India Today.
The bomb was found in the Gazipur flower market in the east of India's capital. IEDs weighing 1.5 kilograms were hidden in a bag. Presumably, the explosives were planted to carry out a terrorist attack on the eve of the country's Independence Day celebrated in India on January 26.
The police quickly cordoned off the place of discovery, and the sappers who arrived were able to prevent a major terrorist attack and prepared the IED for neutralization by a controlled explosion. Law enforcement agencies and the service to combat terrorism have already opened a criminal case and are investigating.
In December last year, Turkish intelligence services prevented a terrorist attack that could have occurred at a rally with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Employees defused a bomb found during a search of one of the cars.
In November 2021, a British taxi driver was able to prevent a terrorist attack. He locked the alleged suicide bomber in his car before his passenger detonated the explosive device and died. He was probably going to attack the crowd gathered in the cathedral on Memorial Day, a date dedicated to the memory of the fallen in the First World War.
