The Mumbai Police have heightened security outside Chabad house after images of the 26/11 terror attack were recovered from the phone of two terror suspects. A Google image of the five-storey landmark was recovered from two accused arrested for planning an attack in Rajasthan.

The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad has taken custody of Mohammad Imran Mohammad Yunus Khan and Mohammad Yunus Mohammad Yakub Saki – residents of Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh - a few days ago. The duo were nabbed from Pune and the image was recovered from them as officials probed the case. The ATS had earlier arrested one person from Pune for giving shelter to the suspected terrorists.

"During the investigation of the duo suspects, it was found that they took the help of a person in Pune to make arrangements for their shelter when they arrived in the city. On the information received during interrogation of the accused, the said person was detained first, and after questioning, he was arrested and booked along with the two suspects," the press release issued by Maharashtra ATS on Thursday said.

The duo have been booked under the UAPA and ATS officials said that they had recovered a tent from their residence as well as “a laptop, some Arabic literature, and a shining white powder that was found to be an explosive material". 

"During the investigation, it was revealed that both were planning to carry out anti-national activities to disturb the unity and safety of the nation, and for this, both had taken the training to make bombs and kept the required materials in their possession," the official statement added.

The 26/11 attack was a series of 12 coordinated shooting and bombing incidents carried out by 10 LeT members in November 2008. The attacks lasted three days and a total of 166 people - including several foreign nationals - were killed. More than 300 were wounded during the terror attack.
