New Delhi: Delhi Police Sunday released the sketch of a man whom the arrested suspected Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist was to contact to plan a 'fidayeen' (suicide) terror attack in the capital.

According to Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) S.N. Shrivastava, the man, aged around 25-30, had brought the arms and explosives, to be used in the attack, to a guest house here.

Police said the sketch was prepared on the basis of statements given by the guest house employees and the CCTV footage.

"The man could be seen in the footage of close circuit television camera installed inside the guest house in central Delhi," said an officer.

Delhi Police Friday claimed to have averted the terror attack following the arrest of Syed Liyaqat Shah, 47, a resident of Dardpora village in Kashmir's Kupwara district, from Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur March 20.

According to police, Shah was told by his Pakistan handlers to contact a person, related to Hizbul Mujahideen cadre, in a guest house in Delhi's Jama Masjid area who was to provide him arms and ammunition for carrying out the attack during the Holi festival.

Going by his confession, police were able to recover an AK-56 assault rifle, three hand grenades, two magazines -- each carrying 30 round cartridges, 220 grams of explosives, a Delhi map and a memory card.

Delhi Police Saturday denied claims of Shah's family that Shah, 47, was going to surrender in Jammu and Kashmir under the state government's rehabilitation policy.
