Khandwa: MP police probing alleged SIMI activities
Indore: Madhya Pradesh police are
investigating into the alleged activities of the banned SIMI
in Khandwa following the clues from the eight suspected
terrorists of the Indian Mujahiddin and the SIMI arrested
The police, along with Anti-Terrorist squad, were
investigating into the alleged activities of SIMI members here
following the information from the arrested terrorists, said
Indore range IG Sanjay Rana.
He, however, said that it was not clear yet whether
any members of the banned organisation were involved in the
bank robberies that had taken place in the city last year.
The Madhya Pradesh ATS on June 5 had arrested eight
terror suspects, four each from Jabalpur and Bhopal, belonging
to the Indian Mujahideen (IM) and the SIMI.
Out of the eight arrested terrorists, those arrested
from Jabalpur were identified as Shaikh Mujeeb (Gujarat),
Aslam (Khandwa), Habeeb (Ujjain,) and Sajid (Ujjain) while Abu
Faizal (Mumbai), Ikrar (Ujjain), Mehboob (Khandwa) and
Ezazuddin (Kareli) had been held from Bhopal.
Meanwhile, Rana also said that it "seems" police acted
in hurry in booking three deputy commissioner-level officers
of the Cooperative department in connection with the alleged
irregularities related to a city-based housing society.
