According to Brigadier General Rahimi, the terrorist was arrested at the Tehran-Qom toll gateway earlier this week, Mehr News Agency reported.
According to Rahimi, the driver of a vehicle, who was threatened with the armed terrorist, provided valuable assistance to the police and officers.
Carrying a vest as well as incendiary material including suicide bomb, the terrorist was leaving Tehran, Rahimi said, adding, however, he was arrested and handed to the judicial authorities.
According to the Tehran police chief, if the terrorist had succeeded to reach his destructive goal, there would have been a heavy explosion and a lot of damage.
Rahimi explained that the terrorist had been recruited by the enemies for some time and he was planning to create insecurity and disturbance in one or two centers near Tehran.
