Terrorists caught in Mysore

This one strikes a chord since it is my own hometown where i grew up. It is a place of perfect peace and harmony where people from all faiths and walks of life live, study, work and socialise together and now it seems to be taking its first baby steps into becoming one more frontier in the War on Terror thanks to a clueless and dithering UPA government at the center and its reckless minority appeasement/votebank politics which prevents the police and security authorities from cracking down on radical elements before they strike deep roots in the local populace and start trouble.

Mysore: Two Pakistan militants nabbed

In a significant breakthrough against terrorism, a special team of Mysore City Police nabbed two Pakistani extremists after a shoot-out on the Outer Ring Road in Vijayanagar Police Station limits at around 12:10 am here on Friday.

The militants who are suspected to be the key functionaries of Al-Badr, a Pakistan-based militant outfit, were on a ‘specific mission’ to create terror in Karnataka, especially in Bangalore.

The militants have been identified as 24-year-old Fahaad (Pakistani identity) alias Nedu Thanni alias Mohammada Koya (Indian identity) and 22-year-old Mohammad Ali (Pakistan identity) alias Hussain alias Jehangir alias Asif Khan (Indian identity).

Acting on a definite information, the 12-member team led by Deputy Commissioner of Police K T Balakrishna intercepted the unsuspecting militant duo who were riding a moped at 12 am at the ring road. Sensing trouble, the militants opened fire at the police party from an AK-47 rifle. The DCP countered firing two rounds from his revolver before the police team overpowered the duo in a 10-minute-long gun-fire.

The police commissioner categorically ruled out that the militants were targetting Infosys campus in Mysore as rumoured after their arrest. “They had no such plans. Their task was to survey Vikasa Soudha and CIIL,” he replied.
