    Bangalore Police arrest journalist, 10 others for suspected terror links


    Bangalore: Bangalore Police on Wednesday arrested 11 people, including a journalist with a popular English daily, for having terror links. Sources said the arrests were made as they were planning to kill a prominent columnist with a Kannada newspaper.

    The 11 people arrested have links with Lashkar-e-Toiba and HuJI, said Karnataka DGP Lalrokhuma Pachau. They had plotted to kill the columnist on Wednesday as he had written an anti-Islam article.

    Addressing a press conference, Commissioner of Police Bangalore JP Mirji said a foreign-made pistol has also been recovered. He added that those arrested were also planning to target prominent personalities of the state including MPs, MLAs and journalists.

    Mirji said those arrested have links with Saudi Arabia-based LeT and HuJI and it is suspected that they have more supporters in other states. "Targeting individuals could have created communal tension," he added.

    Mirji said more details cannot be revealed as the investigation is still on.

    Sources say Uttar Pradesh Police had provided their Bangalore counterparts the intelligence about the terror group, which has links with Indian Mujahideen. Sources add that the questioning of those arrested is on.

    At least three arrests were made in Hubli in north Karnataka.

    Meanwhile, four suspected Indian Mujahideen activists involved in the 2010 Chinnaswamy Stadium blast case were detained in Bangalore on Thursday for questioning, police said.

    Fifteen people were injured when two bombs exploded at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on April 18, 2010 on the eve of the Bangalore-Mumbai IPL semifinal match.

    Speaking to reporters in Bangalore, Director General of Police Lalrokhuma Pachau said backgrounds of those picked up was being checked. "Their backgrounds are being checked. After we come to some stage, we will tell you", he said, adding investigation is on.

    DRDO staffer, 10 others arrested for terror links in Bangalore

    BANGALORE: An employee of a DRDO division and a journalist were among 11 men, all in their twenties, arrested by Karnataka police for alleged links with global terror outfits. A day after an operation to nab these men ended on Wednesday, police said they had been told the group had plans to assassinate MPs and MLAs from the state, a businessman and two journalists from Bangalore.


    Six of them were picked up from Bangalore on Wednesday morning, hours after the others were arrested in Hubli. Police said all had links with Lashkar-e-Taiba and Harkat-ul-Jihadal-Islami. Ejaz Mohammed Mirza, one of the men arrested, works for Airborne Early Warning and Control System, a DRDO division, sources in central intelligence and state home ministry said. An imported 7.65 mm revolver, seven bullets, computers, hard disks, mobile phones and religious tracts were recovered from the men, state police chief Lalrokhuma Pachau told reporters on Thursday.

    For those who would readily swallow the rubbish the Communist Chindu puts out:

    Please think twice before believing anything this newspaper prints....They do not have India's or their fellow Indian's best interests in mind


    About the assasination cell busted in Karnataka:-
    One of the targets of this 11 member gang was a Kannada newspaper journalist named Pratap Simha (Twitter handle: @mepratap)

    In an egregious article, The Hindu sought to justify him being a target on account of his "virulent anti minority columns"

    He threatened legal action against The Hindu and the newspaper has issued an apology in its online edition.

    Hyderabad/Bangalore: A 26-year-old man, Obaid ur Rehman, was arrested from Hyderabad today for alleged links with terror organisations. He has been brought to Bangalore for questioning. This comes after 11 men, including a journalist and a junior scientist, were arrested for alleged terror links.

    The 11 men have been sent to 14-day police custody and are being questioned. All 11 persons are suspected to have links with terror groups like the HuJI and Lashkar and were plotting to assassinate some politicians, journalists and some representatives of Hindu groups according to the police.

    Sources say that at least four of the suspects will be taken to Hubli for further investigation. It was from the residence of one of the accused in Hubli in North Karnataka that an imported 7.65mm weapon was seized. Along with it, several documents, some bullets and CDs with some data was recovered by the police.

    The Bangalore police commissioner Jyothiprakash Mirji had said yesterday that 'a big catastrophe had been averted'.

    In continuing crackdown on the “terror module” busted in Karnataka, city police have arrested a youth in Hyderabad with alleged links to Lashkar and HuJI, taking the number of those detained in this connection to 12.

    21-year old Obedulla-Ur-Rehman was arrested in Hyderbad yesterday on the basis of information given by the 11 terror suspects taken into custody in Hubli and Bangalore earlier this week, Police Commissioner Jyotiprakash Mirji told reporters here.

    “Obedulla-Ur-Rehman along with others had conspired to kill two corporators and one prominent leader of a Hindu organisation of Hyderabad,” Mirji said.

    With this, the number of arrests made in connection with the unearthing of the terror module had risen to 12, he said.

    City police on 29 August arrested 11 persons — six from Bangalore and five from Hubli — with alleged links to Lashkar-e-Taiba and HuJI and claimed to have foiled their plan to target MPs, legislators and mediapersons besides leader of a Hindu outfit.

    Police have so far seized one foreign made 7.65 mm pistol along with seven cartridges, 16 mobiles, 8 SIM cards, 4 ATM cards, three pen drives, two laptops, one motorcycle, one dagger, seven Jihadi books, maps of Chennai, India, Iran and Urdu newspaper clippings from the 11 who have been remanded to 14 days police custody by a court.

    Mirji said the laptops and mobile phones seized from the arrested has been sent to forensic laboratory for analysis.

    He said police were collecting more information about the handlers of those arrested, believed to be in Saudi Arabia.

    A special team constituted to investigate the case was interrogating the arrested, who included a journalist, a doctor and a scientist with Defence Research Development Organisation.

    K’taka terrorplot thickens, 5 more held

    The Karnataka terror plot has become more complex with the five more arrest — four from Maharashtra and one from Andhra Pradesh — and revelation by the Home Ministry that they were planning to target a defence establishment and a nuclear installation.

    Home Secretary RK Singh said that a major terror strike had been averted as interrogation of those arrested in Bangalore revealed that they had a defence establishment and a nuclear installation on their target. “Lashkar and HuJI operatives are handlers of the group. We believe a major threat has been averted with the busting of this module,” Singh said.

    State ATS sources in Mumbai said that the four terror suspects — all in the age group of 20-25 years — were arrested from Deglur Naka area of Nanded town in Marathwada region of Maharashtra on Friday night. Sources identified the four arrested suspects as Sadiq, Mujabil, Iliyas and Irfan. Preliminary investigations have revealed that the four suspects were allegedly plotting terror strikes in Hyderabad and Nanded.

    The four suspects belong to the banned Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and Dindar-e-Anjuman outfits. We had been tipped off that some youths from Marathwada were planning to indulge in terror acts in Hyderabad. We nabbed them before they could indulge in any act,” a senior ATS officer said.

    Meanwhile, the Bangalore crime branch police arrested 21-year-old Obedulla-Ur-Rehman in Hyderabad and continued their effort to bust the terror network across the country.

    According to Bangalore Police Commissioner Jyothi Prakash Mirji, the Rehman was plotting to kill two councillor and one prominent Hindu leader. Mirji told the media in Bangalore that a special investigation team has been constituted to look into the network and designs of those arrested so far.

    “Obedulla-Ur-Rehman, along with others, had conspired to kill two corporators and one prominent leader of a Hindu organisation of Hyderabad,” Mirji said.

    He said the laptops and mobile phones seized from the arrested had been sent to Forensic laboratory for analysis. The police were collecting more information about their handlers, believed to be in Saudi Arabia, he said.

    The Bangalore police on August 29 arrested 11 persons -- six from Bangalore and five from Hubli -- with alleged links to Lashkar-e-Taiba and HuJI and claimed to have foiled their plan to target MPs, legislators and mediapersons besides leader of a Hindu outfit.

    The police have so far seized one foreign made 7.65 mm pistol along with seven cartridges, 16 mobiles, 8 SIM cards, 4 ATM cards, three pen drives, two laptops, one motorcycle, one dagger, seven Jihadi books, maps of Chennai, India, Iran and Urdu newspaper clippings from the 11 who have been remanded to 14 days police custody by a court.

    Deccan Herald Journalist Muthi-Ur-Rehman Siddiqui and Aijaz Ahmed Mirza, a junior research fellow with DRDO, and Dr Jafar Iqbal Sholapur were among those arrested.

    When asked whether Andhra Pradesh police team was in Bangalore, Mirji said, “We will be sharing information with other (state) police officers and vice-versa. Other agencies will come when we need help”.

    A police source told The Pioneer that two of the arrested confessed to the police that they had visited Iran and entered Pakistan illegally and met ISI officials. He said, “According to his confession Abdul Hakeem Jamadar along with Dr Zafar went to Iran and later to Pakistan and met ISI officials.”
