Top cops discuss terror threat
The Delhi police at a conference organised by the Intelligence Bureau on Friday briefed top cops about the threats posed by banned terrorist group Indian Mujahideen that has been accused of carrying out series of blasts in the country.
On the second day of the DGPs/IGPs conference, a senior Delhi police officer gave a presentation on the threats posed by IM members who are still at large. The Delhi police had busted several modules of IM since the infamous Batla House encounter in which its officer Mohan Chand had died. Even in the recent unsolved low intensity Pune blast case, the security agencies suspect involvement of IM members.
However, national security advisor Shivshanker Menon, in his address to the top cops on Thursday, shared Saudi Arabia’s unhappiness over the media leaks of details extracted during the interrogation of key Mumbai attack handler Abu Jundal. Saudi Arabia had extradited Jundal to face trial in India.
It is learnt that Menon apprised the DGPs and IGPs that the Saudi government was annoyed over the way minute details of Jundal case were made public. On the concluding day, Manmohan Singh will address the conference.
