UP Polices Arrests Varanasi Terrorists


The Uttar Pradesh Police claimed to have arrested 6 terrorists responsible for the bomb explosions last month in the Hindu holy city of Varanasi and said that they had plans to blow up the two Hanuman temples in the city on Ramanavami. However, the Delhi police disagreed with this claim saying that the arrested terrorists had links with Jaish-e-Mohammed and while the ones who blasted bombs in New Delhi last Deepavali were connected to the Lashkar-e-Toiba. 

All six terrorists were from Bangladesh and one of them was a priest. The captured terrorists say that they were recruited, funded, and trained by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) spy agency. India accuses Pakistan of fighting a “proxy war” by recruiting, funding, training, directing, and managing terrorist activities in India; predictably, denies the charge.

The latest trend is to recruit poor Muslims from India, take them to Bangladesh via the porous borders of West Bengal, train them in Pakistan with field operations in Baloachistan, and ship them back to India either through Jammu or via the reverse route.

A recent terrorist arrested in the Southern town of Gulbarga has confirmed this modus operandi and the police have extracted vital clues on this strategy through narco-analysis, brain mapping, and polygraph tests.

The 6 arrested terrorists belong to a group called the Harkat-ul-Jihad Al Islami (Huji).
