Mumbai police issues advisory on Kashmiri youths and drivers
Mumbai: Close on the heels of arrest of a couple of Kashmiris, Mumbai Police has issued an advisory to various police stations asking them to keep a watch on people
from the state, especially drivers, as some of them are suspected to have been carrying out recce for terror groups.
The advisory, which was circulated among various
police stations of the megapolis, was issued after the arrest
of two Kashmiris in November last year, based on a specific
intelligence input provided by Jammu and Kashmir police.
The J-K police had also informed the Union Home
Ministry about the possible sinister designs of some terror
groups, especially Lashkar-e-Taiba, to carry out a recce
exercise between Mumbai and Ahmedabad for which services of
some drivers were used, sources said.
Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) had on November
29 last year arrested two Kashmiri youths - for allegedly
trying to recruit members for LeT and obtaining details of
military and oil installations in Maharashtra, Rajasthan and
Mohammed Shareef Makhandeen Thakkar (33) and Mohammed
Isak Mohammed Rasheed Kumlakh (29), both working as oil tanker
drivers, were accused of trying to recruit members for the LeT
outfit after receiving instructions from their handlers in J-K
and across the border.
"Terror outfits like LeT and Indian Mujahideen is
trying to recruit Kashmiri youths and drivers to conduct recce
of sensitive areas including defence establishments. Any
police station under whose jurisdiction there are oil depots
or defence installations should ensure proper security both
inside and outside the place," the advisory reads.
It further states if any private security agency is
employing any Kashmiri men as security guards, police should
conduct proper scrutiny of such men. "A watch should also be
kept on any foreign national found roaming in a suspicious
manner in a crowded places," it says.
Efforts to seek comments from Director General of
Maharashtra D Sivanandan, Mumbai Police Commissioner Sanjeev
Dayal and ATC Chief Rakesh Maria could not fructify as SMS and
calls remained unanswered.
