    Police release sketch of LeT terrorist in Mumbai

    The Mumbai police issued a terror advisory on Thursday night, after receiving intelligence inputs about four terrorists sneaking into the city ahead of the festive season.


    Four members of Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashker-e-Tayiba sneaked into Mumbai, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy said on Thursday. The city police also released the sketch of one of the four suspected terrorists.

    The four have been identified as Abdul Karim Musa, Noor Abu Ilahi, Walid Jinnah and Mahfooz Alam. The police have released the sketch of Walid Jinnah.

    "We have information that they have arrived in Mumbai to carry out violent attacks intended to cause destruction," said Roy. He refused to divulge the nationality of the suspected terrorists.

    Incidentally, the Centre had issued a terror advisory for Mumbai and Ahmedabad two days ago.

    "The last time we had released sketches of terrorists was before Ganesh Chaturthi. Wide- publicity was given to the sketches due to which the festival passed off quite peacefully. This time too we want wide publicity so that people remain alert," said Roy.

    He added that special teams of police officers would be keeping an eye on crowded places like railway stations and religious sites.

    In case anyone has information on the four LeT terrorists, he/she can call up the Mumbai police's hotline at 22633333.

    India police hunt men said to plan Mumbai attack

    NEW DELHI | Thu Dec 23, 2010 11:59am EST

    (Reuters) - Indian police launched a manhunt on Thursday for four men they said belonged to a Pakistan-based militant group and had entered Mumbai to carry out an attack.

    The members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group were planning to strike around the Christmas and New Year festivities, Indian police said. Indian authorities blame the group for a raid by gunmen in Mumbai in 2008 that killed 166 people and raised tensions with nuclear-armed neighbor Pakistan.

    "It is going to be a violent attack which will cause disruptions," Himanshu Roy, joint commissioner of Mumbai Police told a news conference, releasing the sketch of one of the four suspected militants.

    "They have recently arrived in Mumbai. We are not in a position to reveal their nationalities now but they are LeT members," he said.

    Another attack like the 2008 raid on Mumbai could seriously damage India's economy, which has so far proved resilient to militant strikes, Indian officials have said.

    An attack originating from Pakistani soil could force a swift Indian response, destabilizing regional security.

    The four men were named as Abdul Karim Musa, Noor Abul Elahi, Walid Jinnah and Mehfooz Alam.

    Earlier this month, a bomb in a Hindu temple town killed a child and injured several people. In February, a powerful blast ripped through a restaurant in the western city of Pune, killing 17 people, the first major attack since Mumbai.

    Such attacks have fed fears India may never be able to completely secure its cities from attacks by Islamist militants as well as radical Hindu groups

    I'd be more interested to know, what if someone from in here catches this guy! What would you do with him?

    Why Lashkar is sending Bangladeshi cadres to Mumbai

    While the Mumbai police are on the lookout for the four alleged members of the Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Tayiba, who sneaked into the city, the cops released a sketch of one of them. The four alleged militants have been identified as Abdul Kareem Moosa, Noor Abu Ilahi, Walid Jinnah and Mahfooz Alam.
    As the police continue to chase these terrorists with the help of the Intelligence Bureau, who are passing on vital inputs, it has become clear that these men have slipped into the country from Bangladesh via West Bengal.

    The Mumbai police say that they are very much within the city limits and one of them could have even changed his appearance. The police are however taking no chances and have even formed a special squad to arrest the suspects.

    On the receiving a tip-off on the alleged LeT men, an alert was sounded off in Mumbai warning against their possible plan to strike high-profile places in the metropolis including the police headquarters at Crawford Market. Three days ago, there was another alert that cautioned about Mumbai and Ahmedabad being possible terror targets.

    The Mumbai police faced a similar task during the Ganeshotsav celebrations earlier this year. In September, the police were on the lookout for two men -- Kalimuddin Khan alias Rameshwar Pundit and Hafiz Sareef -- who had reportedly sneaked into India and entered the city to launch a terror attack during the festive season. However, these two suspects are still at large.

    Drawing a similarity between the situations, IB officials warn that the city can expect more such alerts in the days to come. The LeT is sending a lot of its cadres to Mumbai from Bangaldesh as compared to the earlier trend of sending cadres from Pakistan. Moreover, these alleged terrorists do not carry out a terror strike and are difficult to trace, as they leave no trail, say the IB.

    The IB explained to rediff.com that in future more and more LeT men from the Bangladesh unit will throng the city. This is a carefully chalked out move because there is more information available on the Pakistan cadres as compared to their counterparts in Bangladesh.

    Post 26/11, the borders India shares with Pakistan are better manned compared to the ones with Bangladesh. Infiltrating through Bangladesh is easier since there are not enough checks in West Bengal, say sources in the IB.

    According to the intel, the LeT cadres job is not to carry out terror attacks, but to set up modules, hand out funds and pass on information to their counterparts in the city. To avoid drawing attention they are not generally armed. But most importantly, they act as a distraction to security agencies.

    The Lashkar makes sure that information about these men reaches the police to create curiosity while their companions undertake different missions, which would be more serious in nature. These men more often than not just slip into the city and slip out immediately; they never hang around in the same place, the IB added.

    Moreover, the LeT is also looking at strengthening their base in Mumbai and sending cadres to the city is a part of the same exercise. While most of these men do not come to carry out terror attacks one cannot take them for granted. You never know when they strike and hence it becomes absolutely necessary to issue an advisory, said the IB.
