New Delhi, Dec 1: The agencies have stepped up efforts to track down a top member of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, Bangladesh. The man in question is Idris and he has been tasked by the JuMB to revive the Indian Mujahideen which had gone bust after several of its top members were arrested in a series of operations undertaken by the police and the Intelligence Bureau.
New Delhi, July 16: The dreaded Indian Mujahideen which carried out a series of blasts across India had the complete backing of the ISI, which plotted all these attacks in Saudi Arabia, investigations have revealed.
Yasin Bhatkal, the chief of the Indian Mujahideen is home-sick. Lodged in solitary confinement at the Tihar jail in Delhi, he has filed an application seeking to be taken to Bengaluru on a body warrant.
It was a high profile operation and the Indian Mujahideen had hatched a plan to bomb the Chinnaswamy cricket stadium in Bengaluru. Yasin Bhatkal was named as the prime accused in the chargesheet that was filed in the 2010 case.
A Delhi court has ordered framing of charges against Indian Mujahideen operative, Yasin Bhatkal in the 2010 Jama Masjid blasts case. Framing of charges were also ordered against 10 others in the case.
Yasin Bhatkal who was sentenced to death for killing scores of innocent people is hungry.
He says that he is not getting enough food at the Tihar Jail in Delhi where he is currently lodged. A Delhi court has sought a response from the jail authorities on the plea filed by the boss of the Indian Mujahideen.
Yasin Bhatkal the former boss of the Indian Mujahideen was adept in handling military grade explosives such as the TNT, C3 and C4. Apart from this he was a master at preparing bombs using the very easily available ammonium nitrate. He mastered the art of bomb making during the various ISI sponsored sessions that he attended at Karachi, Pakistan.
The ISI trained me so well that making a bomb had become child’s play for me, Bhatkal revealed during his interrogation. He was one of the best bomb makers for the Indian Mujahideen and his arrest in 2013 saw the outfit fall like a pack of cards.
Where are the 25 persons recruited by Yasin Bhatkal, months prior to his arrest in 2014. Yasin Bhatkal who had planned on fleeing to Pakistan via Nepal was arrested and during his questioning, he said that the Indian Mujahideen is not dead.
For Yasin Bhatkal, preparing bombs was a passion and he often told his aides that it is an art. He had come up with innovative methods to prepare the bombs and had even sourced silver wood from Karnataka to prepare the explosives.
The discourse around terror does not seem to end. Just when the people had forgotten the 2008 Batla House encounter came the conviction of Assadullah Akthar in connection with 2013 Dilsukhnagar blasts.
Assadullah, the son of Javed Akthar, a popular doctor in Azamgarh was sentenced to death along with Yasin Bhatkal and others for their roles in the Hyderabad, Dilsukhnagar blasts.
