Deputy Commissioner of Police Ajay Kumar, chief of anti-terrorist cell of the New Delhi Police, had warned that Hydrabad and Banglore are highly sensitive cities and vulnerable to Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence-sponsored terrorist acts.

In August he had interrogated a terror suspect who gave him a clear picture of the ISI's plan in India in the coming months.

Ibrahim, who was arrested in Hydrabad had been brought to New Delhi on police remand. During his intense and lengthy investigation Ibrahim, an Indian national living in Hydrabad accepted that he had been to Pakistan. He also claimed that he had been to Pakistan to get training. The ISI has given him training in Balochistan and Bangladesh.
