The banned Students Islamic Movement of India has done it yet again and this time the target was the highly-secure national capital New Delhi. With this operation, the trilogy of terror operations termed as Operation BAD has been accomplished.
Soon after the Ahmedabad blasts, a call was made allegedly from Sabarmati jail in Gujarat to Pakistan. The conversation was intercepted by the IB. The person who made the call (not named as it may hamper probe) told a person in Pakistan, Operation BAD had been successful.
Based on this intercept, the IB and the Gujarat police decoded the message and came to the conclusion that BAD stood for Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Delhi.
Intelligence Bureau sources told rediff.com that SIMI [Images], which is using the name Indian Mujahideen [Images] now, is trying to stamp its authority on the terror network in the country.
Furthering the probe into Operation BAD, the IB says that the call could have been made to Rasool Khan, a former Gujarat-based don who now is in charge of HuJI operations in India.
The IB also says that a man from Hyderabad, lodged in the Gujarat jail, had made the call to Pakistan. In this connection, the Hyderabad police had raided the house of Moulana Nasiruddin and also arrested his son Jabir. Moulana Nasiruddin had been picked up by the Gujarat police in connection with the Haren Pandya murder case.
