Pune is a significant military and research hub. NIA believes that the the two men intended to survey sensitive locations within the city. Further investigations are underway, and white pills found on Khan and Saki have been sent for forensic examination.

The arrested persons had been living in the Kondhwa area for over a year and a half, with their landlord failing to register their tenancy agreement. Although the police recovered one cartridge during a house search, the pistol remains missing.

Both Saki and Khan are believed to be affiliated with ‘Sufa,’ a terror organization inspired by the banned ISIS, and were also planning a bomb blast in Jaipur last year. The NIA had previously filed a case against them for possession of explosives.
