10 years ago, Tauqeer was arrested for Babri posters, let off after a fine of Rs 200

10 years ago, Tauqeer was arrested for Babri posters, let off after a fine of Rs 200

Mumbai, September 17 While Abdus Subhan Qureshi’s mother made an emotional appeal to him to surrender to the police even if he was not linked to the Delhi or Ahmedabad serial blasts, The Indian Express has learnt that the suspected SIMI Terror mastermind was arrested — the only time that he has been held — and convicted way back in 1998 for painting slogans and putting up posters condemning the demolition of Babri Masjid on the eve of the anniversary of its destruction. He got away with a fine of Rs 200 imposed by the court.

Incidentally, the terror e-mail sent minutes before the Delhi Blasts and suspected to be authored by Tauqeer, contains several references to the demolition of the Babri Masjid.

Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) Additional Commissioner of Police Parambir Singh said today that on December 5, 1998, Qureshi, alias Tauqeer, and two accomplices were arrested by the Pydhonie police, a small, nondescript police station in south Mumbai, on charges of defacing Government property by pasting SIMI posters and writing slogans on walls.

Police knew little about Tauqeer, who was 26 then and lived in the Masjid Bunder and the ATS hopes that the two men who were arrested with him, Tariq Ismail Mohammed, then 23, and Salim Abdul Qader Sheikh, then 28, could provide useful leads. The three were convicted by a local court on November 18, 1999, fined Rs 200 or sentenced to 15 days imprisonment if they could not pay the fine, sources said.

“That was the only time Tauqeer has been arrested,” Singh told The Indian Express. “Since it was a bailable offence, he was released on a surety.”

According to the ATS, Tauqeer was also booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in 2006 for distributing jihadi literature — a case in which top SIMI leaders such as Safdar Nagori and Shibly Peedical Abdul were co-accused. Besides this, Tauqeer is also wanted in a case registered at New Friends Colony police station in Delhi in 2001, in which former SIMI president Shahid Badr Falahi and SIMI activist Saif Nachen are co-accused along with four others.

Delhi encounter: 2 killed, 1 arrested

CNN-IBN,  Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 11:43,

CAPITAL SCARE: The gunbattle took place in the house which had been ‘techie’ terror suspect Tauqeer had visited earlier.

New Delhi: A team of the Special Cell of Delhi Police killed two suspected terrorists in an encounter on Friday in Jamia Nagar area of South District in New Delhi.

Five suspected terrorists, holed up inside House No L-18, Batla House in Jamia Nagar, exchanged heavy fire with the police when the team tried to storm the house, police said.

In the ensuing gunbattle two gunmen were killed while two managed to escape. Police managed to arrest one gunman, Saif. He has been taken to an undisclosed location for interrogation, police officials said.

All the suspected terrorists are around 22 years old.

One of the dead has been identified as Atiq alias Basheer and is said to be an associate of Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) activist Tauqeer. The name of the other slain man is Fakhruddin. Police officials said the team went to the area looking for Atiq.

Tauqeer is believed to be behind the July 26 Ahmedabad serial blasts and is also wanted in connection with September 13 bomb blasts in Delhi.

Police also recovered an AK 47 rifle and two pistols along with some diaries with codes from the house. An FIR under Section 307 (attack on police party) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered in the Jamia Nagar police station.

Special Cell Joint Commissioner Karnail Singh confirmed, “There were a total of five terrorist at L-18. Two have been shot dead and one has been arrested while two managed to escape.”

Three police officials were also injured in the encounter. Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the team, a head constable and one constable were injured in the heavy exchange of fire. Sharma, who was hit but a bullet in his abdomen and is in a critical condition, has been admitted at Holy Family Hospital along with constable Rajkumar.

Head Constable Balwant has admitted at the AIIMS Trauma Centre.

Police official also said they got the lead on Thursday after interrogating Ahmedabad serial bomb blast suspect Abu Bashar.

Bashar identified the house in Jamia Nagar where he along with Delhi serial blasts mastermind Mohammad Subhan Qureshi had taken shelter.

He reportedly identified four places – two from North West District and one from South District – where some terrorists could be hiding.

Officials also said the area was under watch since Thursday evening.

A force of almost 150 police personnel was deputed in the area to assist the Special Cell in the operation.

Sources claimed the terrorists holed up in the house were from Harkat-ul-Jihad-al Islami and Indian Mujahideen and could been involved in the recent Delhi serial blasts in which at least 22 people were killed and over 130 injured.

Soon after the encounter started, the area was cordoned off and senior officials of the Delhi police are present in and around the area to ensure security.

An eye witness and a resident of the area, Maseer Alam, said, “There has been firing happening since two hours, and I guess two people have been killed. I can’t identify their faces as they are covered now. One of the police officials has also been shot. Police personnel have surrounded the house and public has gathered, and they are taking away the dead in the ambulance.”

Kerala: A safe haven for Islamic extremists from all over India

Posted by jagoindia on September 19, 2008

Kerala becoming a terror axis
By S. Chandrasekhar, October 02, 2007

Kerala has always been a safe haven for Islamic extremists, throughout the nation, thanks to the Muslim-dominated Malappuram district and the coastline which is predominantly under Islamic control. Many of the jehadi terrorists, including Kashmiri extremists, have one time or other, stayed in Kerala, without any hindrance.

With Islamic groups like NDF, PDP, SIMI, Islamic Students’ Movement (ISM), having links with several jehadi groups all over India and a pro-Muslim government in the CPM-LDF, the extremists never had it better. But, be it CPM-dominated LDF or Muslim League-dominated UDF, the field is open for jehadi operations. All the Al-Umma cadres of Coimbatore, who were involved in the attempt on L.K. Advani, were arrested from Malappuram.

Now in a startling disclosure, threatening the security of the state, Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan has informed the Kerala Assembly that central intelligence agencies have warned the state of Islamic, Naxal and LTTE attacks and asked it to strengthen security.

Based on Home Minister’s statement and media reports, there is proof of jehadi-Naxal-LTTE axis. With a clear forest route available from Andhra Pradesh to Kerala, there is proof of ‘PWG’ movement in Kerala. A Tamil Nadu-based Naxal Sunderamoorthy, who was arrested recently disclosed his stay at Nedumkandam and Pullemedu in Idukki. An LTTE cadre Sadarathinam of Vavuniya, Sri Lanka, was also arrested in Nedumkandam recently. With a large Tamil population, it is easy for Tamil extremist groups to merge with the populace. There are also media reports that LTTE and Naxal/Maoists are using the huge estates, acquired by NDF, for training purposes.

ISI and Bangladesh intelligence are active in several pockets of Kerala. Lakhs of Bengalis who are involved in construction activities in Kerala are actually Bangladeshis and ISI is very active among them. Thousands of Pakistanis who are staying in Malappuram without any documents are allowed to roam free, due to LDF/UDF tie-up with Muslim groups.

LTTE is using the jehadi groups for logistic purposes, since they control the coast. Fuel, medicines and food supplies go to LTTE from Kerala/Tamil Nadu coast. The Maoists, Naxals and LTTE give explosives to jehadis in return. There are also reports that weapons to LTTE come in containers and they are handed over to them by jehadi groups.

Kerala has its cup of problems full, and if LTTE and Naxals join the jehadi groups, who will save ‘God’s own country’?
