MUMBAI: Co-founder of Indian Mujahideen terrorist outfit Yasin Bhatkal has owned up responsibility for a series of bomb blasts which had occured across the country since 2005. He does not have any remorse for killing innocent people. Instead, he feels proud to have carried out the blasts. This has been revealed in the arrested terrorist’s confession to the city police.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (zone three) Kishor Jadhav has recorded Bhatkal’s statement in a case regarding the triple bomb blasts. According to the statement, when Jadhav asked Bhatkal whether he wanted to confess to his crime he replied, “I am proud of what I have done and I do not think that what I did was wrong. I want to confess about what I did.”
Jadhav recorded Bhatkal’s statement under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act, under which Bhatkal has been charged. He has also said in his confession that he and the other accused got involved in various bomb blasts across the country since 2005 to avenge the demolition of Babri mosque in 1992 and Gujarat riots in 2002. Bhatkal has claimed that Gayur Jamali, Qateel Siddiqui, Kafeel Chacha, Tahseen Akhtar, Gauher Aziz, Kafil Akhtar and others used to attend his discourse. He used to show them CDs of the atrocities against Muslims to get them involved in terrorist activities.
