Qaeda suspects held

NEW DELHI: Indian police have arrested three suspected members of an Indian wing of al Qaeda, an officer said on Thursday, describing the detentions as the first successful raid on the militant group since it was set up last year. Militants announced the formation of al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) in September 2014, vowing to raise the flag of jihad across the region. Arvind Deep, a special police commissioner in the capital, said police were interrogating the three members of the group who were arrested in different Indian states.
