ISI adopting new tactics

Devesh K. Pandey

Plan to involve more Bangladesh-based militants in terrorist operations


  • `Nexus between Dhaka-based terrorists and ISI is getting stronger'
  • Trainees at the camp are brainwashed to target India in the name of "jehad"

    NEW DELHI: If revelations made by the three alleged Harkat-ul-Jehad-e-Islami (HuJI) militants arrested by the Delhi police are anything to go by, Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has now adopted a new modus operandi to sponsor terrorist activities in India, ensuring that its name does not come into the picture. It plans to involve more Bangladesh-based militants and those recruited from India in terrorist operations.

    The revelations made by Mohammad Ibrahim, who according to the police received training in a camp run by ISI near the Baluchistan border, are an eye-opener. A close friend of Ibrahim, a resident of Hyderabad, had initiated him into terrorism and sent him to Bangladesh to join other jehadis. He disclosed that top militants of HuJI were providing initial training in handling of improvised explosive devices to the new recruits.

    Ibrahim allegedly revealed that the outfit has its bases in Dhaka and Rajshahi, a place close to the Indo-Bangladesh border. While earlier the Indian agencies had noticed that Pakistani spies and militants who were using Bangladesh as a transit place travelled on Pakistani passports, lately Pakistani nationals have been planted there to provide logistical support to those being brainwashed into joining militancy.

    One of the Pakistani nationals, operating under the co-name Fayeem, had been entrusted with the task of arranging passports for terrorists.
