IM established new module in Rajasthan: NIA
New Delhi: Indian Mujahideen has established a new module in Rajasthan and members of the outfit were "highly motivated" to carry out terrorist activities in the country, the NIA has said in its charge sheet filed in a Delhi court.
In the charge sheet filed against IM co-founder Yasin Bhatkal and his three aides, the National Investigation Agency said members of the Rajasthan module of the outfit were in regular contact with Riyaz Bhatkal, a top IM operative who is based in Pakistan.
"Investigation has also established the emergence of a new module of IM operatives in Rajasthan, the members of which were in regular contact with Riyaz Bhatkal and were highly motivated to carry out terrorist attacks," the NIA said.
The charge sheet referred to the internet chats of June 2 last year between Yasin and another IM operative Afeef in which they had discussed about the emergence of Rajasthan module of the terror outfit.
During the chats, Yasin was sceptical about the members of the Rajasthan module, the NIA said.
"Bhatkal stated that it was risky to trust anyone without full knowledge since such groups could be working under the direction of agencies like RAW and NIA," the agency said.
