Indoctrination into terror network a slow process: ATS

Amruta Byatnal

PUNE: Interrogation in the German Bakery blast case is in full swing after the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) arrested prime accused Mirza Himayat Inayat Baig on September 8. Apart from the ATS squads in Mumbai and Pune, units in Nanded, Aurangabad and Beed are equally busy, finding local people who might have been connected to Himayat.

Inspector Sudhakar Reddy of the Nanded unit on Friday questioned Asad Baig (22) in Udgir. As the investigation revealed, Asad, who hails from Nanded, is educated till the X standard. He told Mr. Reddy that Himayat approached him to “help him out in the XI and XII standard admissions.”

“Himayat had promised Asad that he wouldn't have to go to school or junior college and that he [Himayat] would arrange for ‘everything.' Asad fell for that and kept in touch with him. The two met often in Nanded,” Mr. Reddy told The Hindu.

Mr. Reddy added that the investigations into the blast case have made it clear that this was a commonly followed process to attract young men to the terrorist network.

“It is always a matter of slow introduction, luring them for different reasons, finally leading to indoctrination,” he said.

Sent back

Meanwhile, Saber Patel, Khurshid Alam and Abdul Induri — who were sent to Mumbai from Udgir for questioning last week — have been sent back to Pune. Saber ‘Mamu' Patel was believed to have assisted Himayat in running the Global Internet Café, where the blast conspiracy was allegedly planned.

According to the police, Patel, who calls himself a social activist, already figures in police records for his alleged involvement in around six communal riot cases.
