Al Qaeda film found in Kafeel's hard disc

July 11, 2007 02:56 IST

A movie on al Qaeda, atrocities in Chchenya and Iraq and vitriolic speeches of secessionist leaders were found in a computer hard disc seized from the Bangalore residence of Kafeel Ahmed, a suspect in the failed terror attack in Britain.

The forensic examination of the disc, being done by a special team of experts from central security agencies, found nearly 17,000 files stored in it and this included a movie prepared by al Qaeda to brainwash recruits for global terrorism, official sources said.

They said some literature in Arabic language was also part of the disc besides a history about the website visited by Kafeel on the internet relating to bomb-making.

The computer and other compact disc were seized by the police from Kafeel's Banashankari residence in Bangalore a day after the botched terror plot in Britain was reported.

The sources said British investigators were now claiming that Kafeel had been in touch with an al Qaeda leader in 2003. However, this information had never been shared with their Indian counterparts or Interpol earlier.
