Mysore city corporation issued birth certificate to Pak terrorist

Written by: Staff

Mysore, Oct 27 (UNI) One of the two terrorists belonging to banned outfit Al-Badr, arrested by the Mysore Police today, had procured a birth certificate from the Mysore City Corporation (MCC), while the other, a school drop out, had got a SSLC marksheet.

The documents were among the various articles seized from the two terrorists -- Mohammed Ali Hussain (24), a resident of Karachi and Mohammad Fahad (24) from Mansher in Pakistan. They included Al-Badr letter heads, a laptop containing vital information about the terrorist plots and nearly 2,000 telephone numbers, CDs on how to make bombs, satellite phone, chemicals used in making bombs, an AK 47 rifle and pistols.

The birth certificate was issued by the Mysore City Corporation on July 26, stating that the ultra was born in Mysore. It was issued in the name of Mohammed Koya -- Fahad's adopted name. His passport, issued by the Pakistan Government, contained no stamping, indicting that the insurgent had sneaked into the country.

Many other documents in their possession were also fake. It included a fake identity card, establishing that Fahad was an assistant clerk in the Jammu and Kashmir Department of Education.

Despite being a school drop out, Mohammad Ali Hussain managed to get a Secondary School Leaving Certificate from the Karnataka Secondary Education Board using fabricated records.

The seized articles also included three books -- 'Osama bin Laden I Know' written by Peter Burge, 'Guerilla' written by John L Anderson and a book in Urdu. They also had in their possession a copy of the Holy Quran, besides many credit and debit cards, and bank passbooks.

Police were yet to ascertain who helped the extremists in getting the certificates. ''It will take us at least four days to make these two reveal something substantial,'' a top police official said.

Suvarna, the owner of the two-room house, which the ultras had rented for Rs 1,200 with Rs 20,000 as deposit, was shocked to learn about the developments. She said some policemen had come in search of Fahad regarding 'visa matters'.
