SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

The Union Home Min­is­ter, Sushil Ku­mar Shinde has listed out achieve­ments in a re­cent press con­fer­ence and this in­cludes how the se­cu­rity forces neu­tralised 10 mil­i­tants in Jammu and Kash­mir on Au­gust 30-31, 2013. He also men­tioned how the Na­tional In­ves­ti­ga­tion Agency (NIA) ap­pre­hended two top ter­ror­ists of In­dian Mu­jahideen (IM) viz. Md. Ahmed Sid­dibappa alias Yasin Bhatkal (self-styled op­er­a­tional com­man­der of IM) and Asadul­lah Akhtar alias Haddi on Au­gust 28/29, 2013. They were plan­ning to meet in East Cham­paran area in Bi­har to plan and ex­e­cute some ter­ror­ist acts.

Ear­lier, on Au­gust 16, 2013, Ab­dul Karim alias Tunda, a well known Lashkar-e-Toiba ex­plo­sive ex­pert, wanted for his role in the 1993 Mum­bai se­rial train blast, Delhi bomb blast of 1997-98 and se­rial bomb­ings in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Pun­jab, Andhra Pradesh, etc., was ar­rested by the Delhi Po­lice from Ban­wasa-Me­hen­drana­gar bor­der with Nepal.

The Min­is­ter also men­tioned the ar­rest of Willy Naru­e­nart­wanicha, pop­u­larly known as Willy, by Thai­land Po­lice on the extradition re­quest sent by Gov­ern­ment of In­dia on Au­gust 30, 2013, in Bangkok. He was in­volved in a crim­i­nal con­spir­acy for procur­ing arms and am­mu­ni­tion in huge quan­tity from a for­eign coun­try to wage war against In­dia. Ear­lier in the same case, one ac­cused, named as An­thony Shim­ray was ar­rested in In­dia by NIA and the trial of the case is go­ing on be­fore NIA Spe­cial Court, New Delhi. This is a sig­nif­i­cant break­through as far as in­ves­ti­ga­tion of ter­ror crime is con­cerned, as for the first time extradition re­quest sent to Thai­land against a Thai Na­tional was ex­e­cuted by the Thai Gov­ern­ment.
