ISI behind Task Force office blast: police

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: Pakistan's ISI plotted the explosion in the Hyderabad police Task Force office on Dasara night and got it carried out through a Bangladeshi suicide bomber with the help of pan-Islamic terrorist groups, the police announced on Sunday.

The breakthrough comes 66 days after the blast at Greenlands, very close to the Chief Minister's residence.

The police said two Hyderabad-based youngsters -- Kaleem and Mohd. Abdul Zahed -- were arrested.

Raids continue

"Some more locals aided and abetted terrorist activities being orchestrated by outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba and Harkat-ul-Jehad-al-Islami. Raids are on to nab them," Hyderabad Police Commissioner A.K. Mohanty told a press conference.

Kaleem was picked up near L.B. Nagar. A 12 bore short firearm with five live rounds was seized from him.

He told the police that one Gulam Yazdani, a Hyderabadi operating from Saudi Arabia, lured him to terrorist groups.

Training in Bangladesh

With Yazdani's support, Kaleem allegedly underwent militant training in Bangladesh. From there, he came to Hyderabad with Dalin alias Mohtasim Billal, a Bangladeshi.

"Two days before the blast, they did a recce of the office," Mr. Mohanty said. On the day of explosion, the two came to the Greenlands area in an auto-rickshaw and walked up to the office. While Kaleem waited outside, Dallin ran into the building and blew himself up, the Commissioner said.

A home guard was killed and a constable on guard sustained injuries in the explosion.

"We will arrest some more persons in a few days," Mr. Mohanty said.
