NEW DELHI: The anti-terror unit of the Delhi Police Special Cell has filed a case against two suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives for planning to carry out “fidayeen attacks on high profile personalities” in the national capital.
The Special Cell sleuths said they received an intelligence input that two suspected LeT operatives, identified as Abu Dujana and Abu Ukasha, had infiltrated in Jammu and Kashmir through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
“Two of them, identified as Dujana and Ukasha, have been reported to be based in the Kashmir Valley for quite long and are allegedly conspiring to target high-profile personalities in Delhi by carrying out ‘fidayeen’ (suicide attacks) or grenade attacks either themselves or through their cadres,” top officer of Special Cell said.
“The cadres are believed to be using code names like Noman, Zaid and Khursheed,” the FIR states. The FIR was registered on December 1 at the Special Cell office in Lodhi Colony, New Delhi under Section 120 B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC and relevant sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and doesn’t name any suspects.
The FIR states that LeT is conspiring to carry out terrorist attacks in Delhi and other places in the country, for which alleged handlers have infiltrated operatives in India through J&K and other international borders. Express had on August 9 and September 1, reported that India has prepared a list of terrorists who sneaked into its territory and are getting help from commanders operating in the valley.
The reports said at least 15 LeT operatives — including seven Pakistanis — and 22 Hizb-ul Mujahideen terrorists operating from 26 hideouts have been identified. The reports also said that apart from Abu Dujana, the security establishment has identified LeT operatives suspected to have helped suicide attacker Noman, who was killed in the Udhampur attack.
