Mujahideen, LeT enlarging networks: IB
New Delhi, Nov 21: The Intelligence Bureau (IB) on Thursday issued a warning saying Indian Mujahideen, IM, along with the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), has enlarged its networks and capabilities to carry out terror strikes in India.

Though top IM leaders like Yasin Bhatkal have been arrested, IM still poses huge terror threat, informed the IB.

Intelligence Bureau chief Asif Ibrahim said that the evidence gathered from across the border showed that Pakistan continued to sponsor terror groups active in India.

Terror outfits, which operate from Pakistan, continue to push large number of terrorists into the state of Jammu & Kashmir to project the state as troubles zone, said Ibrahim. IM is also trying to connect with terror outfits from other parts of the world.

IB has also instructed sleuths from across India to focus on cases involving IM. As part of strengethening the police force in the country, a 3-day meet of police chiefs from across the country has been organised by the IB.

Border forces

IB expressed confidence in the border forces and said they are intact. However, the chief noted that the terror network along the western border is getting stronger.

He also said although left-wing extremism in Maharasthra, Orissa etc is on decline, CPI (Maoist)'s activities in North east is still strong.

Communal tensions

Circulation of provocative videos via social media made situations worse in Muzaffarnagar, Ibrahim said. It shows how social media is misused by parties with vested interests, he said.
