'Lame' PM, govt had information on Mumbai blasts: Sources

Mumbai blasts 2011
Mumbai, Jul 14: It can be very shocking news for many but media reports claimed that intelligence intercepts in Feb 2011 had informed the government about the possible terror strike by Indian Mujaheedin (IM), the terror group whose role has been suspected for the recent serial blasts in Mumbai.

Here comes the question - was Prime Minister Manmohan Singh unaware of all these information? It could be another reason of embarrassment for the UPA government as it (government) might be criticised over failing once again to provide apt security to the aam-admi.

According the sources in Indian security establishment, sources earlier had informed about the possible militant activity in Jul 2011, though the sources reportedly failed to clarify the exact place, date and time.

Indian Mujaheedin (IM) reportedly had appointed two new batches of trained operatives who had no recorded links to earlier modules. IM suddenly came on the suspected list after citing its style of activities in past terror strikes.

Evidences gathered from one of the three blasts hit places, Zaveri Bazar, indicate the use of ammonium nitrate with fuel oil with RDX as the booster. Similar kind of explosives were found in Mumbai train blasts in 2005, and the Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Delhi blasts in 2008.

Three back to back blasts at Dadar, Zaveri Bazar and Opera House killed at least 21 people and injured more than 141. Home Minister, P Chidambaram and Maharashtra Chief Minister, Prithviraj Chavan visited the blasts areas in Mumbai at the wee hours of Thursday.

Recently, Intelligence Bureau (IB) alerted all metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad about the possible terror attacks. All Mumbaikars have been requested to stay calm and not to panic over the ultra attacks. Red alert has been issued in all cities.
