India's terror-error list terrorizing; CBI, govt red faced

Terrorists in India
New Delhi, May 20: A "most wanted" terrorists list, made by the Indian government, has become a boomerang for the country. A goof-up by the investigating agency, CBI and police officials, isolated the UPA government, along with the entire nation, at the international platform.

India, in Jun 2010, had handed over the list to Pakistan, claiming that those listed 50 terrorists have taken shelter in that country (Pakistan). However, a terrific report unearthed the grave "mistake" by the Indian government that one of the listed terrorist, Wazhul Kamar Khan is present in India and not in Pakistan.

Union Home Minister P Chidamabaram, at first apologized and accepted that, inclusion of terror accused Khan in the list of most wanted fugitives given to Pakistan was a "genuine error" by Mumbai Police and "oversight" by the Intelligence Bureau.

Now, it will be interesting to see that how Chidambaram and other government officials would react when it has emerged that one more terrorist, Abdul Rashid Khan is not in Pakistan but in fact a guest of the state at Mumbai's Arthur Road jail.

Feroz Abdul Rashid Khan, who figures at No 24 on the list India handed over to Pakistan recently, is in Mumbai's jail for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

Meanwhile, the red-faced CBI released a statement on Thursday, May 19 that said an inspector had been suspended and two supervisory officers of the rank of SP and DSP have been transferred pending a detailed inquiry.
