New Delhi, Sep 11: Its been over two decades since the 9/11 attacks in the United States. The face of terror had changed and none had witnessed an attack deadlier than that.
While India had complained on several occasions about terror emanating from Pakistan, the US took it seriously only post the 9/11 attacks. The attacks in the United States that brought down the twin towers of the World Trade Centre even had an Indian connection to it.
During the investigations on several occasions, an Indian link to the deadly attack had cropped up. Officials tell OneIndia that the main link was regarding the funding. The spotlight on the Indian link to the attack came back when an Aftab Ansari, who was part of the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen was brought back to India for his role in the abduction of a businessman and the attack on the American Centre in Kolkata.

New Delhi, Feb 17: A report released by a Brussels based thinktank has termed Karachi as the hub of anti-India activities. The report titled, “Pakistan: Stoking the fire in Karachi” was released by the International Crisis Group.
It speaks about how easily jihadi elements are able to carry out their activities right under the nose of the security agencies. Groups such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Jaish-e-Mohammad are linked to the madrasas. They enjoy the support of the Pakistan army, the report also states.
A Chinese nuclear submarine docked in the harbour at Karachi last year was captured by Google Earth raising fears that China may be spying on Indian warships.

Karachi, Nov 3: Chhota Rajan has told the Indian agencies that Dawood Ibrahim is protected by the ISI- a fact that is well known since yore. However, what is more interesting is that Dawood Ibrahim who is in Pakistan has not moved from his location since the past one year, fearing that there could be an operation by the Indian agencies against him.
When Ajit Doval took over as the National Security Advisor last year, the ISI decided that it was about time to curb the movement of Dawood Ibrahim. The don who often shuttled between various locations has been confined to his home in the Clifton area of Karachi.
Dawood Ibrahim has been missing from his home in Karachi since May 28 2014. It was days after the Narendra Modi government took over that the ISI decided to shift its financial asset to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. He has been in that region since the past five months and the ISI will not take a single chance to move him from there, an Intelligence Bureau official confirmed.
The apprehension that the ISI had was that India had already collected all possible information on Dawood and knew his exact whereabouts. India had contemplated carrying out a major operation to nab him dead or alive and in a bid to scuttle this plan, the ISI along with its own security personnel moved him to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in the month of May. Moreover the ISI was also well aware that nabbing Dawood Ibrahim was a pet project of the National Security Advisor and wanted to take no chance.
Keeping Dawood in the Af-Pk border only meant that his base was entirely new and they could keep moving him around as and when India gathered intelligence on him. The IB official further informed that the Af-Pk border is a safe den for several ISI assets. They have kept even the AQIS chief Asim Umar over there. These areas are heavily guarded and controlled by the ISI and the Paksitan army and they consider it to be safer to keep their operatives there rather than in Karachi.
