In the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the Intelligence Bureau had issued several warnings regarding the security of Narendra Modi, who was then running for Prime Minister. All the reports had a clear indication that the threats were by external agencies, who were backing groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Students Islamic Movement of India.
With the investigating agencies zeroing in on Naved Jutt in the Shujaat Bukhari murder case, the Lashkar-e-Tayiba has denied that their man was involved in the incident.
On Sunday, the security agencies killed two terrorists of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba in an encounter in Kashmir. Among them was Shakoor Ahmed Dar of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
The Lashkar-e-Tayiba has launched its new online magazine, Wyeth in which it speaks of tough times in Kashmir this year. Describing the Kashmir battle as the common man’s struggle, the magazine says that this year would be a tough one for the security agencies in Kashmir.
The name of Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist Naved Jutt, who made a dare-devil escape from jail has cropped up in the investigations being conducted into the murder of noted journalist, Shujaat Bukhari.
While criticising the Governor’s rule in Kashmir, the Lashkar-e-Tayiba has praised the statement made by Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.
Tayiba terrorist who works along with the Hizbul Mujahideen is one of the key suspects in the killing of noted journalist Shujaat Bukhari.
The police with the help of the Intelligence Bureau are probing all possible angles relating to the killing of noted journalist, Shujaat Bukhari. The police had released the sketches of the killers and has sought the help of the public in identifying them.
The killing of six terrorists in a single day while they were trying to infiltrate could be considered as a major success for the security agencies guarding the Indian border. The infiltration bid was the fourth since May 16, when the Indian government announced a unilateral ceasefire due to the holy month of Ramazan.
There seems to be no breakthrough as yet in the case relating to the threat letter sent by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba threatening to blow up places in Uttar Pradesh. The UP ATS and Special Task Force are working in tandem to trace the origins of the letter said to be sent out by Jammu and Kashmir area commander Maulana Ambu Sheikh.
