The documents found in the bag were found to be that of a person named Somesh Gupta who has been called and further inquiry is on, she added.
Items in the bags included a laptop, mobile phone, personal care items, and other documents, the DCP said.
Last week, an improvised explosive device (IED) stuffed with RDX and ammonium nitrate was found inside an unattended bag at the Ghazipur flower market.
The explosive was kept in an iron box and concealed in the black-colored backpack. The IED was later destroyed by using a controlled explosion technique after it was lowered into a deep pit located in the area. Ahead of Republic Day, the Delhi-National Capital Region has been put under a “very high-security” cover after police received inputs from Intelligence agencies about a possible terror attack, officials said.
Operation of sub-conventional aerial platforms, including UAVs, paragliders, and hot air balloons, over the national capital, has been prohibited in the city from January 20 in view of the Republic Day celebrations, according to a Delhi Police order issued on Tuesday.
The order shall come into force from January 20 and remain in effect till February 15.
