‘Terrorists are like mosquitoes; hard to control’
New Delhi: The entire top police brass broke
into peels of laughter when a senior official of Maharashtra
-- which has bore the brunt of militant strikes -- termed
terrorists as "mosquitoes" who are difficult either to be
controlled or killed.
Delivering lecture on "Urban Terrorism" during a meeting
of Directors General and Inspectors General, the senior police
official said it was "easier to kill seven lions" but killing
or capturing terrorists was like mosquitoes, where the success
rate is very low.
The officer was addressing the country`s top brass at the
just-concluded three-day conference organised by Intelligence
The official took a veiled dig at intelligence inputs
received from central security agencies and said that often
during his stint he had received notes suggesting 10
terrorists had entered into Mumbai city and added that finding
them was like locating a pin in a haystack.
He likened terrorists to mosquitoes and said as it is
difficult to control them. It was equally difficult to prevent
them from entering a city, a statement which saw the entire
hall in the Vigyan Bhavan bursting into laughter.
