Authorities say an alleged bomb maker who fled his house during a raid has surrendered to police in Indonesia’s capital.

Jakarta police spokesman Colonel Rikwanto said today that 32-year-old Muhammad Toriq gave himself up late Sunday.

He said a belt of explosives was strapped to Toriq’s body when he surrendered, but he handed it over along with a gun and ammunition.

Toriq escaped after residents in western Jakarta rushed to his home last week as plumes of smoke shot up from it. Police later found explosive devices inside.

Toriq is believed to be linked to a militant group that planned to shoot police and bomb the parliament building to wage ‘‘holy war’’ and establish an Islamic state.
