BANGALORE: The Internal Security Division (ISD) established  to tackle terrorism will soon spread its network across the state. With its head office located in the state capital, ISD was restricted to operate only in Bangalore till date.

The ISD will open offices across various districts. It has also sent a proposal to the government regarding setting up its offices and recruiting more staff for  effective intelligence in gathering information about terrorist activities.

The ISD has plans to have its offices in all the six police ranges (Southern, Western, Eastern, Central, Northern and North Eastern ranges) of the state. With thr government’s nod, the offices would shorlty come up in Mysore, Mangalore, Davanagere, Belgaum and Gulbarga. All the zones would be headed by an officer of the rank of Superintendent of Police supported by Dy SPs, inspectors, sub-inspectors and constables. The ISD may rope in some local police for assistance. At present, the ISD sleuths are mostly dependant on the information passed on by Intelligence Bureau (IB) and state intelligence department. Now, the ISD plans to collect information about militant activities across the state.

Inspector General of Police of ISD, Bhaskar Rao, however,refused to divulge any information about the plans. He told Express, “ISD is an agency which deals with sensitive matters. So, it is not appropriate to reveal our plans to the media.”
