Ahead of Commonwealth Games, suspected Islamic terrorists shoot and injure two tourists near Jama Masjid in Delhi

Gunmen fire at tourist bus in Delhi, wounding 2

By NIRMALA GEORGE, Associated Press Writer Nirmala

Sun Sep 19

NEW DELHI – Two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire Sunday at a group of tourists near one of India’s biggest mosques, injuring two Taiwanese and raising concerns about security less than two weeks before an international sporting event in the Indian capital.

The gunmen shot randomly at the tourists as they were about to board a bus parked near the Jama Masjid mosque, police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said. The 17th century mosque is a popular tourist destination in the heart of the city.

Police launched a massive search for the gunmen and issued a security alert across the Indian capital.

Hours later, the BBC’s Hindi language service said it received an e-mail purportedly from the Indian Mujahideen, an Islamic militant group, threatening to attack the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

“We know preparations for the games are at their peak. Beware, we too are preparing in full swing for a great surprise,” the e-mail said.

Police cautioned that the e-mail and Sunday’s attack could be unrelated.

“We are investigating the attack on the tourists from all angles,” said Karnail Singh, a joint commissioner of police.

Officials quickly tried to reassure athletes and the public that security in the city was at an unprecedented high. Thousands of athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations are to compete in the games, which are held every four years.

New Delhi’s top elected official, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, appealed for calm, declaring the city was safe to host the Oct. 3-14 games in which 71 teams are to take part.

“Please do not panic. An incident like this is something worrying, but nothing to panic about,” Dikshit told reporters.

The secretary-general of the games organizing committee, Lalit Bhanot, said the shooting would have “no impact” on the event.

Indian authorities “have made elaborate arrangements to provide the Commonwealth Games athletes and officials a safe and secure environment,” Bhanot said in a statement.

Federal Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram visited the two injured Taiwanese men in the hospital after one was operated on for a stomach wound.

They were in stable condition, said Jaspal Singh, a top police official.

The area around the mosque was cordoned off after the attack and police scoured the densely populated alleys around it. Cars and other vehicles were checked at barriers erected on major roads in the city.

Police said witnesses could give few details about the assailants.

“Eyewitnesses have told us the men were wearing raincoats and helmets. They fired around seven rounds before they sped away,” Karnail Singh said.

The Indian Mujahideen, which has been linked to the banned Pakistan-based Islamist rebel group Lashkar-e-Taiba, was outlawed in June after it was suspected of involvement in an attack on a popular bakery in western India in which 10 people died.

A day ahead of Prime minister Manmohan Singh’s [ Images ]  key note address at Vigayan Bhavan at a conference organised by the Central Bureau of Investigation, the Delhi  police arrested a twenty-seven-year-old Pakistani Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist from New Delhi railway station.

The man was carrying explosives in different form that would have killed un-suspecting school going children in the form of a book, or bottles and bicycle bells to be used as bombs were also recovered from him. “These deadly devices would explode on the spot and kill people,” an army bomb expert said while explaining the method of operation. The explosives were also used in tiffin boxes and dolls, to target children. Detonators and timer were also recovered from him.

Mumbai terror attack shows strong local Muslim support network

Probe suggests extensive local support network

Links seen between Mumbai attack and raid on IISC in 2005

NEW DELHI: Investigators have fanned out across India to check out several leads available from the Mumbai attacks. The information gathered so far indicates the existence of a massive secretive network with tentacles in Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore,
Dhaka, and elsewhere.

In Delhi and Kolkata, investigators are trying to find out who bought the SIM cards that were later recovered from the slain terrorists in Mumbai. Sources said the Kolkata police have identified at least two youths who may have bought SIM cards in West Bengal. They are believed to have bought the cards from three different places using a fake voter’s identity card in the name of Hossain Ur Rahman. In Delhi, investigators are looking at shops in Karol Bagh from where the SIM cards were bought.

The jigsaw being put together suggests the terror attacks mounted by Pakistan-based youths had strong support from a homegrown network. The same network may have been involved in recent strikes. Though it is not a cohesive group, the network
comprises several former Simi (Students Islamic Movement of India) members with a strong base in Hyderabad and other parts of South India. The group has deep linkages with the Lashkar-e-Taiba, which has since denied involvement in the attacks. This group is influenced by Taliban and al-Qaeda ideology.

Suspicions about this group, which for some time has been calling itself Indian Mujahideen, have been firmed up by links emerging between the latest Mumbai attacks and the 2005 attack on the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

The networks of Shahid Bilal, a Hyderabad resident who was killed in Pakistan some time ago, and Riazuddin Nasir, his close associate who was arrested in Karnataka, had joined hands with a faction of Simi and other like-minded youths to create a network of India’s most formidable terror supporters. This group is believed to have carried out several bombings in Indian cities and assisted in the attacks on the IISc, mostly under the banner of Indian Mujahideen. The Mumbai attacks were carried out under the banner of Deccan Mujahideen.

Sources said Abu Hamza, who escaped after the December 28, 2005, attack on the IISc, was a key motivator for the 10-member terror group that attacked Mumbai. They were convinced by Hamza that it was easy to fool the Indian police and escape back to Pakistan, according to arrested terrorist Ajmal Kasab, now in the custody of the Mumbai Police.

Investigators believe that the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s Dhaka-based operatives obtained the Indian SIM cards and supplied them for use during the attacks. The terrorists were also provided with SIM cards from Austria and the US. Besides, several GPS systems and a Thuraya satellite phone were in the possession of the terrorists, according to a source.

The investigators are also combing through several leads pointing to the possible involvement of the underworld, especially smuggling gangs, in organising logistical support for the terror group. The customs department has for the past few months been investigating the massive smuggling of diesel and other items by a group of Dawood Ibrahim henchmen, especially one led by a Colaba-based customs clearing agent. His son and the son’s employees are being investigated.

As of now, the most noticeable challenge for the investigators is to find out the extent of local support made available to the terrorists. “We still haven’t made a breakthrough,” said a senior official. He said unless the local contacts are unearthed, it would be difficult to get at the full truth behind the conspiracy.

SIM cards used in Mumbai attack bought from Kolkata

“The SIM cards were purchased from Park Street and 24 Parganas (South) including Maheshtala in the name of Hossain-ur-Rahman and smuggled out of the country through Indo-Bangladesh border and then to Pakistan, official sources said.

The buyer of the pre-paid SIM cards had submitted forged election identity card as proof of residence bearing address as Bashirhat, near the Indo-Bangla border, they said, adding the agencies were trying to locate remaining seven SIM cards.”

3rd Saturday terrorist attack in Delhi, 2 killed, 17 injured

Posted by jagoindia on September 28, 2008

If it’s Saturday, it must be Delhi



Sept. 27: Terror struck the nation’s capital again on a Saturday, this time in south Delhi’s Mehrauli market where a low-intensity bomb placed in a tiffin box exploded, killing a 10-year-old boy and injuring at least 20 people, seven of them critically. Another person died of injuries late on Saturday night.

The attack took place two weeks after the September 13, 2008 serial blasts here which claimed over 23 lives, and exactly one week after the police busted an Indian Mujahideen module allegedly involved in the blasts in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Mumbai. The past two incidents of terror bomb attacks in Delhi (Sarojini Nagar on Diwali eve in 2005 and the Delhi serial blasts of September 13 this year) also took place on Saturdays.

Intelligence sources suspected Saturday’s blast could be a retaliation to the busting of the IM module or aimed at stirring communal trouble ahead of the festive season. Union home minister Shivraj Patil, who has been at the receiving end from the Opposition and UPA allies alike for his alleged inept handling of the security situation, avoided the media. Late on Saturday evening his office issued a brief statement condemning the blast.

Deputy commissioner of police (south) H.G.S. Dhaliwal cited eye-witnesses as saying that two men wearing a pair black jeans and black T-shirts, riding a black motorcycle with a Delhi registration number, dropped a black polythene bag containing a tiffin box opposite an electronics shop in the flower market at about 2.15 pm. The market is barely a few hundred metres from the Qutub Minar.

“The bomb exploded moments after Santosh, a 10-year-old boy returning from school, picked it up to return it to the motorcycle riders, but it exploded killing him on the spot,” Vipin Chabbra, an electrical goods shop owner, said. Another eye-witness, who identified himself only as Devendra, said the men were lean. He said the rider was wearing helmet and the pillion-rider had tied a handkerchief across his face. Devendra’s two siblings were missing after the blast. “No one has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. We are investigating the matter,” Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said. The police has detained nine people for questioning — five were detained at IGI Airport and two each in Mehrauli and Sarita Vihar.

The blast bore a striking resemblance to the September 13, 2008 serial blasts that hit Gaffar

Market in Karol Bagh, Connaught Place and Greater Kailash I, the sources said. The ingredients used in the Mehrauli blast was a small quantity of ammonium nitrate along with sulphur and potassium. Ammonium nitrate was also used in the September 13 serial blasts.

“Ammonium nitrate was loosely packaged with nails, which acted as shrapnel and caused injuries. A small quantity of sulphur was used to create dark smoke and potassium was used as the trigger material. The bomb exploded due to friction with the atmosphere and contact with the nails,” a Delhi police official said. “Such bombs are usually made by militants associated with the Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami outfit,” the official added.

Police sources said the bombers could have come from Lado Sarai area, from where low-intensity blasts have been reported in the past. They could have fled to Gurgaon in Haryana after executing the blasts. Mehrauli is located on the border with Haryana. The police has sounded an alert for the two suspects. “Extensive checking is being undertaken to catch them,” joint commissioner of police (southern range) Ajay Kashyap said. Checking of vehicles has been intensified at the Delhi-Gurgaon border.
2 killed, 17 injured in Delhi blast
Onkar Singh in New Delhi, September 27, 2008

Two persons were killed and 17 injured in a blast in Mehrauli market in New Delhi on Saturday.

According to eye-witnesses, two men riding on a motorcycle dropped a black polythene bag in the market area and left. A 13-year-old boy Santosh Kumar picked up the bag to give it back to the bikers. They refused and fled the place, but the boy was still keen on giving it to them, when it exploded killing him instantaneously and injuring 18 others.

The injured victims were taken to All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Safdarjung Hospital.

One of the injured — a 60-year-old unidentified man whose cervical was badly fractured — succumbed at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences late in the evening, AIIMS sources said.

Delhi has been put on high alert.

The locals of Ward No. 8, where the blast took place, mostly shop-keepers, voiced their anger at the lax security arrangements in the national capital, in spite of the serial blasts two weeks ago.

The were also angry at the delayed response by the police forces, which reached the blast site late

“The public rushed the injured to AIIMS, not the police,” said an eye-witness.

Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said that the party condemned the incident and paid its condolences to the victims. “This is a war against India and the government of India should deal firmly with the terrorists,” he said.

Fire engines and ambulances were rushed to the spot. The shops in the locality were shut down.

Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil,  who received lot of stick because of September 13 serial bomb blasts, called an emergency meeting of senior officers, Intelligence Bureau, Research & Analysis Wing and Delhi police soon after the Mehrauli bomb blast around 2.15 pm to take stock of the situation and report to Sonia Gandhi.

“I will ask my officers to brief you,” Patil told journalists who wanted to know what he had to say about the law and order situation now, particularly when he is expected to review the terror situation in Shimla on Monday where chief ministers of norther states will participate.

“Special Branch is investigating the incident and after we get the information, we will share it with the media,” Delhi police PRO Rajan Bhagat told

BJP’s nominee for the post of Delhi chief minister Vijay Kumar Malhotra visited the site and expressed shock over the incident.

AIIMS trauma centre confirmed the death of two persons. Officers of the Delhi police requested the media not to speculate.

Former director general of Punjab police K P S Gill said that the blast looks to be a crude bomb blast.

“We will have to wait for more details. We need to rework our strategy against terrorists who are spreading terror by carrying out serial blasts in various cities,” Gilll told

Delhi has been put on high alert and its units are looking out for two motorcycle-riding terrorists who carried out this attack as they were identified by the locals who saw them placing the bomb.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the family members of the boy who was killed in the blast.

She said the Delhi government would also provide Rs 50,000 to each of the injured person and would give all necessary medical assistance free of charge to them.

Condemning the incident, she said, “It is sorry to hear that yet another blast has taken place in the city. Our government will give compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the dead and Rs 50,000 as well free treatment to those injured in the blast.”

Dikshit visited the hospital to meet the injured soon after her arrival from New York, where she had gone to attend a UN-sponsored round-table discussion on environmental sustainability.

Delhi: 2 Islamic terrorists killed in gunbattle, 1 arrested

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.”

Delhi Blasts: A Moron Secularist Questions

Posted by jagoindia on September 15, 2008

Here is Samyukta who came face to face with death (Islam) but fails to make the connection, proving her dyed in the wool moronness:

She claims to have had a narrow escape from the Delhi blasts,

“My family, my whole family, mom dad sis, had a narrow escape in today’s Delhi serial blasts. By ‘narrow’ I mean really really narrow. They were a few meters away from the blast site, and were AT the site from where live bombs were found minutes later.”

But she fails to link it with Islam. Look at the way she rambles on and on :

“What promise? What sins? What on earth are they trying to do? Are they really so naive to think they’d ever achieve anything in this manner. No matter how flawed our governance is or how weak our intelligence is do they really think they can successfully wage and win a war against an entire nation’s force? Are they that stupid?

In all the news channels this email was shown today. The opening line says, “in the name of Allah.” So do they mean their Allah told them to kill people? Kill which people? Hindu or Muslim or other religion people? Or did Allah specifically ask them to kill Indians of whatever religion? Are they going to kill Indians living in India only or NRIs too?”

Samyukta’s ignorance about islam and arrogance about Hindutva show how dumb can a Hindu turned atheist gets. Is it our education, our media, our all pervasive pseudo-secular system  — what makes us so stupid that we don’t even know basics about islam. Like a typical coward she can only rant about Hindutva.

One wonders if Quranic studies should be made compulsory in India, so that every moron Hindu will realize the violence and hatred Islam teaches. If anyone cares please go here and enlighten this humongously ignorant and misled lady. These atheist Indians are the bane of India and a product of anti Hindu bias perpetrated by pseudo-secular systems since 1947. God know how many ignorant and dangerous Samyukta’s are walking around in India.

For what it’s worth, here is what Islam teaches about Non-Muslims

Delhi blast islamic terror email threatens to “stop India’s heartbeat”

Posted by jagoindia on September 14, 2008

Terror mail threatens to “stop India’s heartbeat”
Praveen Swami

Author believed to be top Students Islamic Movement of India bomb-maker Abdul Subhan Qureshi

–More terror attacks will follow, says the e-mail
–Bombings “a tribute to our brethren martyrs in Kashmir”

NEW DELHI: In the fifth in a series of manifestos issued by the Indian Mujahideen since it began a series of nationwide urban bombings in 2007, the terrorist group has said Saturday’s serial bombings were intended to “stop the heart of India from beating.”

“We the Indian Mujahideen, ask Allah, the Almighty, to accept from us these nine explosions which were planned to be executed in the holy month of Ramadan,” states a 13-page manifesto and video slide-show e-mailed by the Indian Mujahideen to media in the midst of the bombings.

Charging Indians with harbouring “never ending hostile hatred in your hearts against Islam and its people,” the manifesto says that the bombings are intended to “prove to you the ability and potential of [the] Indian Mujahideen to assault any city of India at any time.” It promises that more terror attacks fill follow “to punish you even before your earlier wounds have healed.”

Much of the manifesto is devoted to holding out threats to the police and media. It states: “Be it the ATS [Anti-Terrorism Squad] of Maharashtra, the ATS and ACB of Gujarat, the OCTOPUS [Organisation for Countering Terrorists] of Andhra Pradesh, or be it a psychological propaganda war by the biased media, none shall be spared when it comes to vengeance – the Qisas.”

For the first time, the Indian Mujahideen makes reference to the conflict in Jammu and Kashmir. “The injustice and pain inflicted on Kashmiri Muslims during the Amarnath crisis has once again landed you in great trouble,” it warns.

Describing the Delhi bombings as “a tribute to all our brethren martyrs in Kashmir,” the Indian Mujahideen says, “We announce that from now on, Inshallah, the Muslims won’t cry alone, our women won’t be widowed alone, our children won’t balone [sic., be alone] and scores will be settled evenly.”

Interestingly, in an evident response to anti-jihadist clerics who have in recent months attacked the Indian Mujahideen, the e-mail lays claim to the legacy of famous regional jihadists. “We have carried out this attack in the memory of two most eminent Mujahids of India, Sayyed Ahmed, Shaheed and Shah Ismail, Shaheed (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon them), who had raised the glorious banner of Jihad against the disbelievers in this very city of Delhi.”

Sayyid Ahmad of Rai Bareilly and Shah Ismail died at Balakote, Pakistan-administered Kashmir, in May 1831, in what is present-day Pakistan-administered Kashmir, while waging an unsuccessful jihad against Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s kingdom. Ahmad’s followers went on to set up the Jamaat Ahl-e-Hadis — a neo-fundamentalist order that has drawn million of mainly-peaceful followers, but has also inspired south Asia’s largest terrorist group, the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Pakistan-based Lashkar units are thought to have trained several members of the proscribed Students Islamic Movement of India, from which the Indian Mujahideen has drawn its cadre.

Indian Mujahideen operatives had issued the first of five similar manifestos in November, 2007, minutes before the bombing of three trial court buildings in Uttar Pradesh.

Police in Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan believe that this e-mail was drafted by Lucknow-based businessman Shahbaz Husain and cleric Abdul Bashir Qasmi, both of whom were arrested earlier this month. Both the address used to send the e-mail,, and the pseudonym used to sign ‘Guru al-Hindi’ bore interesting similarities with Husain’s personal e-mail address,

Sources involved in the investigation of the May serial bombings in Jaipur said they believe Husain, with some advice on theological issues from Qasmi, also drafted the e-mail issued by the Indian Mujahideen in the wake of the attacks. Like the court-complex e-mail, this document was also signed by ‘Guru al-Hindi’ and sent out from an e-mail address containing his name, guru_alhindi_jaipur@

Later Indian Mujahideen manifestos are believed to have authored by Abdul Subhan Qureshi — a Mumbai-based software engineer-turned top Students Islamic Movement of India bomb-maker who was profiled in The Hindu on Saturday.

Qureshi, police sources say, designed the graphics-rich Portable Document Format manifesto attached to an Indian Mujahideen e-mail issued by its most ambitious terror operation so far, the attacks on Surat and Ahmedabad in July. This third e-mail manifesto bore the signatures of both ‘al-Hindi’ and ‘al-Arbi’, or ‘the Arab,’ and was sent out from Forensic specialists have established that the handwriting used in the signature for ‘Arbi’ closely matches that of Qureshi.

Later, ‘al-Arbi’ sent out a fourth e-mail to decry the arrest of key suspects alleged to be involved in the Indian Mujahideen, including Qasmi. In this last e-mail, he promised to execute further attacks.

Saturday’s terror manifesto bears the signatures of both ‘al-Arbi’ and ‘al-Hindi,’ but the writing used for the second name is significantly different from that used in earlier Indian Mujahideen documents — a fact which could bear out police claims that the individual it refers to has been arrested.

Delhi blasts: Indian Mujahideen’s email

Posted by jagoindia on September 14, 2008

Full text of Indian Mujahideen email before the Ahmedabad blasts is here and the original copy with graphics and Koranic verses is here. It is imperative for all to know their Islamic agenda.

There will be more bomb attacks, warns Indian Mujahideen
14 Sep, 2008, 0000 hrs IST, ET Bureau

NEW DELHI: After claiming responsibility for the Jaipur and Ahmedabad blasts, militant outfit Indian Mujahideen has now claimed that it is behind the series blasts in Delhi. A mere five minutes before the first blast in Gaffar Market in Karol Bagh, the terror outfit sent an email to media houses, saying “Indian Mujahideen strikes back once more.”

“Within 5 minutes from now…this time with the Message of Death, dreadfully terrorising you for your sins,” the email said. “And thus our promise will be fulfilled. Inshallah,” it read. The outfit further challenged the police and security agencies to stop the serial blasts. “Do whatever you want and stop us if you can,” the mail said. The mail, which was sent from ‘Arbi Hindi’, from the e-mail ID of, also contained a video clip and an attached document, which the group claimed was evidence of its hand in the serial blasts. The clip showed a series of photographs of victims from previous blasts along with the caption “our jihad”.

The Indian Mujahideen, in an attached document running into 13 pages, said that it is solely responsible for the serial blasts. “The Indian Mujahideen — the homegrown jehadi militia of Islam — have once again attacked to make you face the disastrous consequences of the injustice and oppression inflicted upon the Muslims all over the country,” the attached document said.

The group claimed that the Delhi blasts were the direct result of the raids carried out before and after the Ahmedabad blasts on July 26. “This accurately planned deadly strike is just another reaction to all those pre-and post-26 July harassments imposed by your ATS and police on the innocent Muslims,” the Indian Mujahideen said.

The email refers to the Amarnath land issue and violence against Christians in Orissa.

The Babri Masjid demolition and the 2002 Gujarat riots are also cited in the attached document. The document attacks the Central government and the state governments of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. The Rajasthan, Gujarat and Mumbai ATS, which are investigating blasts cases, also come under attack from the terror outfit.

The document ends with a taunt to security agencies, saying that the security agencies till now had been unable to trace the earlier two emails it had sent before the Jaipur and Ahmedabad blasts. The terror outfit further warned of more attacks.

In a similar fashion, the Indian Mujahideen had claimed responsibility for the serial blasts in Jaipur and Ahmedabad by sending emails to media houses. The emails were posted from fictitious accounts.

In the Jaipur blasts, the little known terror outfit had sent an email to two media houses. The email, apart from explaining the motive behind the blast, also included video clips showing a bicycle that was packed with explosives. The group had claimed that the footage was taken before the serial blasts in which 63 people were killed. The group had also said in the email that the blasts were meant to destroy Jaipur’s tourist industry. The group had warned India against supporting the US on the international stage.

The state government has directed cinemas to cancel all screenings post 9 pm. Security has been heightened in public places like cinema halls, places of worship, railway stations.

“We have decided to suspend night shows in all cinema halls of the state capital as a precautionary measure. Relaxation in exhibiting night shows may be provided after reviewing the situation in a day or two,” Bhopal District Collector Manish Rastogi was quoted as saying by IANS.

The state is known to be a stronghold of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). Top leaders of the outfit, including its chief Safdar Nagori, were arrested in the state a few months ago.

Vehicles were being checked at many points across the city, according to a police official. “Cops in the state, mainly in the Malwa region which includes Indore and Ujjain, are also looking for the probable SIMI links,” he said.

Directives have been issued to all districts’ police heads and railway police officials to heighten security cover in their jurisdiction, he added.

The officials have also been directed to keep the anti-bomb disposal squads, sniffer dog squads and the Rapid Action Force ready to be deployed quickly in case of any eventuality.

The DGP said the police have strengthened their deployment in and around Raja Bhoj airport here, as well as at airports in Indore, Jabalpur, Gwalior and Khajuraho.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Saturday night called an emergency meeting and directed the police to maintain high vigil at all important establishments and intensify checking at all sensitive places in the state.

Senior police and civil officers attended the meeting.

Bomb threat to Kanpur mall
The police on Sunday received a terror threat to blow up a mall in the Uttar Pradesh city.

The call was made from Orai town in Jalaun district of the state, the police added.

Kerala streets deserted post threat
Streets remained deserted on Sunday evening following media reports that the Karnataka police have received an email that Kerala could be the next terror target.

With the media going to town saying that a TV 9 channel reporter in Bangalore had received a telephone call that bombs would go off in Kerala Sunday 7 p.m., the top brass of the Kerala Police went into a huddle and gave orders for strict combing operations.

Director General of Police (DGP) Raman Srivatsava after the meeting of top police officials told reporters that the police are fully geared to meet any situation.

“There is no panic situation and we are doing our duty. High alert will be maintained across the state for the next three days,” said the police chief.

Tamil Nadu: Action against rumour mongers
Tough action was being initiated against those who were causing a fear psychosis in Chennai by spreading rumours of a terror threat to the metropolis, police said on Sunday.

“These vicious mischief mongers are obviously suggesting that after Bangalore and Ahmedabad, Chennai and Kolkata (forming acronym BACK) are the next targets of terrorists. We have put out bulletins to tell the public that this is a baseless rumour,” police commissioner R Sekar said on Sunday night.

Roads were deserted all over Tamil Nadu for the second half of Sunday following rumours on the one hand and incessant rains in several parts on the other.

Repeated electricity outages also worsened the situation.

Police, however, intensified patrols and pickets at all vulnerable areas that included temples, mosques, rail, bus and air terminals besides the IT corridor in the southern outskirts of here.
