BANGALORE, India (CNN) -- Authorities in southern India said they foiled a possible terror attack on a local parliament building in Karnataka state late Thursday and have arrested two terror suspects following a shootout.

On Friday, Karnataka's Director General of Police, B.S.Sial, identified the suspects as Pakistanis, who he said were surveying the parliament building in Mysore. He also said there were other buildings on a list that they were trying to target, including a parliamentary office in Bangalore.

Confiscated after the shootout were an AK 47 rifle, a pistol, and a satellite telephone.

The last terrorist attack in Bangalore took place on Dec. 28, 2005 at the Indian Institute of Science. During that incident, one professor was killed and 3 others were injured when a gunman opened fire on the campus.
