THE low intensity bombs that Indian Mujahedeen operatives had planted; unspooled Jharkhand connection with this conspiracy to physically eliminate Modi. It is a different story altogether that Modi’s bête noire and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar made a false claim that Intelligence Bureau (IB) had not issued threat percept.
The biggest story, probably more disturbing, too is that political and police establishment pretended all these years it least knew about devil has become a demon—ready to devour everything. That Md Imtiyaz Ansari of Sithio village in Ranchi caught red handed with bombs at Patna railway station on the day of blast and his accomplish and co-villager; Tarique (probably a human bomb who died on November 1) got injured while wrapping bomb around waist are the mere pinions of that intricate terror plot. So was rest two of their co-villagers; Taufique and Noman who chose to be instrument in the hands of anti-national and jehadi forces, who are hands-in-glove with secularist forces opposed to nationalistic forces.
“That very mission was designed to eliminate Modi, which luckily failed. Three IM modules were involved in this operation. Within Ranchi, IM has established more than a dozen modules. Jharkhand had long become a safe haven for terrorist,” a senior intelligence official commented.
Now the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken over the investigations hunts have started for two top IM operatives and mastermind; Tahasheen Akthar aka Monu a resident of Samastipur (Bihar) who carries cash reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head and Haider a resident of Aurangabad (Bihar).
Haider who figures in the wanted list of NIA in different cases including RC 06/12 Delhi for waging battle on the country lived in Doranda locality in Ranchi and studied in local Doranda College. Everybody was aware except police and security agencies that Haider was recruiting youths of the locality to join IM modules.
It is nothing but a sheer intelligence failure or probably unwillingness of the political class that gave IM a free hand to establish its modules in Ranchi. Ranchi SSP Saket Kumar Singh admitted that during interrogation Imtiyaz accepted that Haider and Monu had provided them three bombs each in Ranchi a day before they boarded Ranchi bound bus.
