Two more persons have been taken into custody in connection to the alleged ISIS-style terrorist cell that was busted in raids last week. Teams of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) detained two scrap dealers from Amroha in Western Uttar Pradesh, about 140 km west of Delhi.
