Four suspected Indian Mujahideen operatives, who were allegedly planning to carry out terror attacks during the coming election, have been arrested from Rajasthan, Delhi Police said Sunday.

The men were identified as Waqas, Waqar Azhar, Mohammad Mahroof and Saquib Ansari, Special Commissioner S.M. Srivastava said here.

"We have arrested four terrorists ... on a tip off from Ajmer police. Waqas disclosed the hideout of his associates," Srivastava said.

The Special Cell of Delhi Police and the Rajasthan Anti Terrorism Squad arrested the men named by Waqas from Jaipur and Jodhpur Saturday.

Srivastava said they were planning to carry out terror attacks in the country during the April-May Lok Sabha election.

Waqas is wanted in connection with several terror attacks including the serial blasts at Zaveri Bazaar in Mumbai in July 2011.

Police said they seized a huge amount of explosives from the arrested men.
