The UP Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) uncovered the alleged plot on Sunday when they raided two addresses in Lucknow. Five out of the seven people living at those addresses managed to flee the spot. Soon after this, an alert was issued across Lucknow and nearby districts to nab the suspects who remain at large, according to sources.
