Nation wide manhunt

Meanwhile the NIA is all set to coordinate between the police of Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka to launch a manhunt for the five SIMI operatives who have gone missing ever since they broke out of the Khandwa jail in Madhya Pradesh in October 2013.

As per the information available the SIMI operatives are moving in one batch of four. One of the members was injured while preparing a bomb at Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh last year and he has been out of the picture.
