The Goa police arrested a terrorist carrying ammunition on the Matsyagandha (Nizam-uddim-Kerala) Express train at Madgaon Railway station yesterday evening.

"We were tipped off about him. The suspect Tariq Anwar hailing from Jammu and Kashmir, was carrying 2 kg of RDX and hand grenades with him," Ujjwal Mishra, deputy inspector general of police (DIG) told MiD DAY. The Madgaon police have taken Anwar into custody.

Following the arrest, the police have beefed up security in the tourist state. Police officials said that Kashmiris running businesses along the state coastline - Sinquerim, Candolim, Calangute and Baga in the north Goa district - would be under the police scanner.

The police suspect that Anwar has terrorist links with some of the Kashmiris who have flourishing business establishments in the state.
