Hyderabad: With a suspected terror module unearthed in the city, the BJP today accused the state government of displaying “criminal neglect” in preventing Hyderabad from becoming a “safe haven” for terror elements.

“NIA busted an ISIS module in Hyderabad and raids are still underway. BJP questions TS (Telangana State) government on its criminal neglect in preventing Hyderabad and old city becoming safe havens for terrorists,” BJP state unit spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao said in a statement.

“CM KCR’s soft approach and minority vote bank politics is taking a toll on the image of Hyderabad city,” he said.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today carried out raids in different localities of the old city and detained at least five persons, who were allegedly planning terror activities in the city, and recovered some ammunition, police said.
