ISLAMABAD, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- Police in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad said Monday they have arrested an alleged terrorist two days after they recovered weapons and suicide jackets.

Qari Inayat was arrested after another suspect, Sardar Ali Khattak, an employee of the Finance Ministry, revealed links between him and his wife, police said.

Police used Khattak's wife to set up a meeting with Qari Inaya and he was arrested as soon as he arrived for the meeting near a mosque in the G-6 sector of Islamabad.

Four hand grenades were also recovered from the suspect's possession, a police officer said, requesting not to be identified.

Sardar Ali Khan Khattak, suspected of planning a suicide attack in Islamabad, was earlier arrested by security agencies in Islamabad. His four accomplices, all members of a terrorist outfit based in the Mohmand Agency tribal region near the Afghan border, were also arrested in Islamabad in August and a suicide jacket was recovered.

Khattak, a helper in the Finance Division, who was on leave for two years, was allegedly facilitating the terrorist group in their planned attacks on a Quds Day rally and at sensitive buildings in the capital, according to a police source.
