At least one suspected terrorist opened fire at security forces in Thakurganj area of Lucknow, on Tuesday afternoon.

The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad is currently engaged in an operation in Thakurganj area of Lucknow. The area is among the densely populated areas of Lucknow.

Security officials had to fire tear-gas shells into the house where the suspect is holed up. The suspect has been identified as Saifullah but there was no official confirmation of the same.

Police said they were suspecting just one person to be holed up inside the house, but they have not ruled out the possibility of there being more individuals.

ADG (Law & Order) Daljit Chaudhary said they had received inputs about presence of some suspects linked to Ujjain train blast in Kanpur and Lucknow, following which senior officials searched the areas.“One suspect has been arrested from Kanpur, the second one is inside a building in Thakurganj. He has not come out yet.”

Civilians residing in the area have been moved away and the ATS has surrounded the structure where the suspect is currently holed up.

The security personnel are reaching out to the suspect hopeful that he will surrender, but he has reportedly declined to surrender.

The security personnel will have to ascertain the amount and kind of weapons present with the suspect before they plan on their next move.

The other option with the police is to storm the house and neutralise the suspect. A high-level meeting between government and police officials is currently underway.
