Terror module busted in Delhi, UP shows Dawood is still prime asset for ISI

New Delhi, Sep 15: The busting of two ISI sponsored modules, one by the Delhi Police and another by the UP ATS is clearly a sign of the Pakistan spy agencies trying to up the ante ahead of the elections to be held next year.

While the Delhi Police arrested 6 persons who were planning attacks during the festival season, the UP police picked up 3 persons following raids at Lucknow, Rae Bareli and Pratapgarh.

ISI sponsored terror module planning major attacks busted by Punjab police

pathankA terror module being run by the ISI was busted by the Punjab police on Sunday. In a statement released here, the police claimed that the three accused – Gurdial Singh, Jagroop Singh and Satwinder Singh, were directly linked with the International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF), an ISI backed outfit.

SIMI role in the picture now

As investigations progress into the 13/7 serial blasts, the police have started examining the role played by fringe elements of both the Indian Mujahideen as well as the Students Islamic Movement of India.

While the IM continues to be main suspect in this attack, investigators are also looking into the possibility of some radical members of the outlawed SIMI taking part in this attack. Sources say that there is also a possibility that both these groups could have executed this attack. The group has however been extremely careful while executing the attack and preliminary investigations do not indicate any major interaction between members of this outfit while planning or executing this blast.

In the past the members of the IM and the SIMI have intereacted through phones and also emails which has the led the investigators on to them. However this appears to be the handiwork of a very small group and it could have been planned by five to ten persons of the same module. They have not communicated through phones and it appears that they had planned it together in one place and then executed it.

The intelligence bureau however adds that the case does remain open for now and all the groups and their activities are being probed. There are police teams in both IM and SIMI strongholds at the moment and vital leads are being picked up from these places, they say.

Looking at the manner in which the bomb was made it becomes clear that it had been assembled by a professional and not the same module which had put together the bombs during the Delhi attack prior to the CWG. They have used IEDs and the bombs were triggered off by a cell phone. However there is no trace of the phone as yet, sources also added. The Union Home Secretary too earlier today confirmed that the devices had a level of sophistication.
