Hyderabad, Oct 6: City police today arrested 15 suspects, including five Bangladeshi nationals overstaying in the city, following intelligence alert that 'human bombs' had sneaked into the city to engage in subversive activities during the Ramzan season.

Police sources said the Intelligence Bureau had alerted the Andhra Pradesh police about the possibility of terror strikes by suspected suicide bombers of Harkat-ul-Jihadi Islami (HuJI).

Ultras might target religious places to trigger communal disturbances in the sensitive Old City, sources added.

Police sounded high alert and launched intensive frisking and vehicle checks at railway stations, bus bays and other public places.
