Roping in the relatives: Here is how Indian Mujahideen is reviving

By Vicky

There is no doubt that the cadres of the Indian Mujahideen are a depleted lot. While the outfit is down, security agencies say that the matter cannot be taken lightly as the IM would look to bounce back. Currently the outfit is looking for people in a bid to revive itself.

Sources in the Intelligence Bureau tell OneIndia that the group members are now talking to relatives in a bid to indoctrinate and recruit them. The job of bringing the IM back to life has been handed over to Mohsin Chaudhary, currently in Pakistan.

Chaudhary an accused in the Pune serial blasts of July 2008 has been absconding and according to intercepts he is now in Pakistan. He reports to one of the founders of the group, Riyaz Bhatkal who is based out of Karachi.

As a first step, he has got in touch with his relatives in India and is attempting to recruit them. The IM does not want to focus too much on Bhatkal as the place is very high on the radar. The IM would look for people in Maharashtra, IB sources say.

Following the arrest of Yasin Bhatkal and Assadullah Akthar, the IM took a beating. Currently the outfit does not have a bomb maker. Chaudhary during his conversations that were intercepted is heard asking his aides to look for an expert bomb maker. He is also heard saying that someone must be trained to make bombs. Yasin was the expert bomb maker in the outfit and following his arrest, the IM has not been able to find a replacement
