Terrorism in India
New Delhi, Jul 16: Terrorist groups are planning to strike India's Bhakra Nangal dam in Himachal Pradesh during monsoon, says an IB report.

According to media reports, terror groups, LeT and Jamaat-Ud-Dawaat are planning to strike Bhakra Nangal Dam during monsoon when the water level is at the highest to cause maximum damage.

Terrorists are being trained in Pakistan for climbing up the walls and swim under water, reports say. A report has been sent to the Himachal Pradesh government in this regard and has been asked to tighten its security.

The news comes after the recent terror strikes that shook Mumbai on Jul 13 at Zaveri Bazaar, Dadar and Opera House.

The terror strikes left 18 dead and at least 131 injured.

Meanwhile, the key suspect involved in the Mumbai blasts belonging to the Indian Mujahideen has gone missing, said sources. The Maharashtra ATS questioned Danish Riyaz, who was arrested in Jun in connection with the 2008 Ahmadabad blasts.

The Mumbai ATS have issued a lookout notice for Abdul Nata, an IM terrorist. The Mumbai ATS has also sought the details of passengers who were travelling from Kolkata to Mumbai and Kolkata to Kanpur.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra chief minister Prithivraj Chavan praised Home Minister RR Patil for his commitment and the way he is handling the probe.
