India’s Most Wanted

After a major embarrassment, India is ready with its new list of 48 persons and will hand it over to Pakistan and expect that country to take action. Earlier India had prepared a most wanted list of 50 persons and handed over the same. However it was discovered that two of the men, Feroz Abdul Rashid and Wazhul Khan the two men mentioned in the most wanted list were very much in India.

The new list according to sources remains the same barring the exclusion of the above mentioned two names. We have carefully gone into the list and the previous over sights have been rectified. There is however no change in the order in this new list and for India Hafiz Mohammad Saeed continues to top the list. Although Dawood Ibrahim is the number 2 most wanted man in the world list, he still figures at number 7 in this list. A source said that the numbering has been done based on the immediate threats that the country faces and also on the basis of intelligence inputs which spell out the threat perception these persons can cause.

Hafiz Mohammed Saeed: The boss of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the prime accused in the 26/11 case. Saeed has launched a hate India campaign and this country continues to top his list.

Sajid Majid: For some clarity on the 26/11 case, India would need access to this man. He has been mentioned by David Headley and his role in the case became clear after that.

Syed Hashim Abdur Rehman Pasha: Another man India would need to crack the 26/11 case. A retired Pakistan army official, he coordinated with Headley and also stayed in touch with him during the operation.

Major Iqbal:  He faces charges in the United States for his role in the 26/11 attack. Indian agencies claim that he is an ISI official and once again came into the picture when Headley was scouting targets in India. He was also the main handler during the attack.

Illyas Kashmiri: The bigger question is whether he is dead or alive. Indications are that he floated the news of his death to avoid the heat after the death of Bin Laden. His role in the 26/11 plot is unclear, but as per his own claims he was the one who thought of such a plan which was eventually hijacked.

Rashid Abdullah: He shuttles between Pakistan and Bangladesh. He continues to be a headache for India since he carries out a chunk of the recruitments for the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.

Major Sameer Ali: Another Pakistan army official involved in the 26/11 attack. Along with the rest he too had worked with Headley, the charge against him states.

Dawood Ibrahim: Branded as a terrorist by the United States of America, he is wanted in several cases in India ranging from the 1993 blasts to smuggling and fake currency. He is also responsible for creating routes for Lashkar operatives which are already in use for his drug trade.

Ibrahim Memon: A Dawood aide and is also a key accused in the 1993 serial blasts.

Chota Shakeel: Dawood’s right hand man, Shakeel is wanted for extortions in India.

Tiger Memon:  Arranged smuggling of RDX, chalking of plans for explosions in 1993.

Anis Ibrahim: Brother of Dawood Ibrahim hiding in Pakistan today. He is a key member of the D gang and has control over the business in the Gulf areas.

Abu Hamza: An accused in the Indian Institute of Science attack at Bangalore.  He was one of the handlers who was on the phone with the terrorists who carried out the 26/11 attack.

Zaki-ur-Rehman-Lakhvi: The number two on the Lashkar hierarchy he is the operations in charge of the outfit and is wanted for the 26/11 case.

Maulana Masood Azhar: Wanted for the battle in Kashmir and also the Khandahar hijack case.

Syed Salahuddin: The supreme commander of the Hizbul Mujahideen and runs the all powerful United Jihad Council. His war has been primarily in Kashmir and latest reports suggest that he is becoming a menace to the US also.

Top 50 on India’s most wanted list

From Left: Hafiz Mohammed Saeed, Dawood Ibrahim and Zaki ur Rehman Lakhvi
Dawood Ibrahim may be number 2 on the worlds most wanted list, but for India the top man is Hafiz Saeed. He tops the list today of being India’s most wanted and has been termed as India’s Osama Bin Laden post 26/11.

Dawood Ibrahim, the primary financer of the ISI and its terror affiliates figures 8th on the list of India’s most wanted. The list of the top 50 remains the same, but the order has changed. The new inclusions in the list are the Pakistan majors who had aided David Headley. Apart from this the list finds the regulars from the D gang, Indian Mujahideen and also those involved in spreading terrorism in Punjab. The list of fugitives on this list are either hiding in Pakistan, Bangladesh or the Gulf.

Hafiz Mohammed Saeed: The big boss of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, he is the main person behind the 26/11 massacre. A blue eyed boy of the ISI, Hafiz Saeed is a provocative speaker and it is said that a large chunk of the recruitment process in Pakistan is dependant on his speeches which are fiery in nature. His names figures on top of every chargesheet that has been filed in India for terror attacks carried out by the Lashkar.

Sajid Majid: An unheard of name, this man came into the limelight post 26/11. His name came up repeatedly during the David Headley interrogation and it was established that he was the handler with whom Headley stayed in touch during his India operation. A red corner notice has already been issued against him by India.

Syed Hashim Abdur Rehman Pasha: The main coordinator in the Headley case, he retired from the Pakistan army in the year 2007 following which he was on the rolls of the Lashkar. Although Pakistan continues to deny that this man had anything to do with Headley, he has been named by the United States Justice Department during the Headley case. He stayed in touch with Headley during the operation and it is said that the there are telephonic conversations between him and Headley to support the case. Headley too in his interrogation told the NIA about the role played by Pasha.

Major Iqbal: Charged now by the United States for taking part in the 26/11 attack, this man is said to be an officer in the ISI. During the Headley operation, he was said to be the main handler and guided Headley through the operation. He is currently in Pakistan and his name will come up once again when the Rana trial takes place on May 16th.

Illyas Kashmiri: The Chief of the Al-Qaeda’a 313 brigade. Primarily dedicated to the cause at Afghanistan, he had a falling out with the ISI when they wanted him to stay away from India and continue his war against the US. However Kashmiri came to the limelight when he claimed that the 26/11 plot was initially hatched by him but hijacked by the ISI to help the Lashkar. His name once again cropped due to his association with Headley and the latter had said that the two had planned on staging more attacks in India.

Rashid Abdullah: This man also goes by the alias Rehan and is an operative of the Lashkar. His primary job was to arrange for local contacts during terrorist strikes on Indian soil. Currently hiding in Bangladesh, it is said he was sent there to mobilize forces to carry out strikes on Indian soil.

Major Sameer Ali: An officer in the Pakistan army, his name cropped up during the Headley case. He is believed to have worked closely with Major Iqbal during the 26/11 operation and had helped Headley too.

Dawood Ibrahim: India’s fugitive don is number 2 on the world list. Termed as a terrorist by the United States of America, Dawood is currently in Pakistan under the protection of the ISI. His primary role is to raise funds through fake currency and the drug trade. Also he is wanted in the 1993 serial bombings at Bombay. He is also primarily responsible for creating routes for Lashkar operatives which are already in use for his drug trade.

Memon Ibrahim: A close aide of Dawood Ibrahim and was one of the key accused in the 1993 serial blasts. He is said to be hiding in Pakistan and furthering the business of the D gang.

Chota Shakeel: Dawood’s right hand man, Shakeel is more wanted for extortions in India. He also has a major role in all D company related operations in India.

Memon Abdul Razak: Known as Tiger Memon, he alongwith other co accused persons hatched a criminal conspiracy to cause terrorist acts in India. In pursuance of the said conspiracy, he arranged weapon training for co accused persons in Pakistan. Arranged smuggling of RDX, chalking of plans for explosions in 1993.

Anis Ibrahim: Brother of Dawood Ibrahim hiding in Pakistan today. He is a key member of the D gang and has control over the business in the Gulf areas.

Abu Hamza: His name first cropped up during the Indian Institute of Science attack at Bangalore. Following this attack, he was packed off to Pakistan and was put in charge of organizing attacks from there. He came into the limelight once again post 26/11. He was one of the handlers who was on the phone with the terrorists who carried out the attack. He was made a handler after the Lashkar realised that his skills on the field were not up to the mark. Today he continues to be in Pakistan and is one of the primary handlers of the Lashkar since the outfit found him to be a better motivator and a planner when compared to a foot soldier.

Zaki-ur-Rehman-Lakhvi: The number two on the Lashkar hierarchy, he goes by the name of Lakvhi chacha for all his cadres. While his boss Saeed is the ideological face of the Lashkar, Lakvhi is more in charge of operations and recruitments. He was the one who personally oversaw all aspects pertaining to recruitments and training for the 26/11 attack.

Maulana Masood Azhar: A key figure in the valley, this Jaish-e-Mohammad. He focus had always been on Kashmir and is accused of carrying out mass killings in the valley. However his name came to the limelight during the Khandahar hijack case where the hijackers traded passengers for his release.

Syed Salahuddin: The supreme commander of the Hizbul Mujahideen and runs the all powerful United Jihad Council. His war has been primarily in Kashmir and latest reports suggest that he is becoming a menace to the US also. Under the HM, he organized forces to fight in Kashmir and later he formed the UJC which is said to be closely associated with the Al-Qaeda. There is not much spoken about this man since he always maintains a low profile. He is extremely close to the Pakistani establishment and more or less does exactly what they want. There have not been any reports of any rebellion from his side which puts him on par with the likes of Saeed and Lakhvi who are the blue eyed boys of the ISI in Pakistan.
