Ottawa, Aug 28 (ANI): Canadian Police have reportedly arrested a fourth suspect in connection with an alleged domestic terrorist plot, that has already led to charges being filed against three Muslim men.

According to the Globe and Mail, the fourth detainee not been charged with any offences.

However, the key allegations levelled against him are possession of sophisticated long-range remote bomb detonators, a technological leap forward, over the thwarted plans of terrorists who previously targeted Canada.

Fifty-odd circuit-boards were seized by police this week, which would reportedly be central to investigations into the Canadian terrorism case.

The latest circuitry discovered is disturbing. It could have set off many explosions from a triggerman several hundred metres away. While the devices were assembled in Canada, police say they were partly built out of know-how acquired from terrorists overseas, the paper reports.

Although details of the plot remain fuzzy, it is being speculated that Parliament Hill was a target on a terrorist hit list.

Three other suspects who were arrested earlier include Hiva Alizadeh, Misbahuddin Ahmed and Dr. Khurram Syed Sher.

A year's worth of round-the-clock investigation by an estimated 100 police officers in many cities led to the arrests. However, authorities still remain in doubt about many key details. (ANI)
