Terror Trail: Hindu extremist group was responsible for blasts in mosques in Haryana, five members of terrorist module arrested in Patiala
After an exhaustive investigation, Patiala police officials arrested five members of the radical Hindu terror group. All the arrested extremists including the terror mastermind Sagar alias Azad, hail from Haryana.
They have confessed involvement in the series of blasts in Haryana in 2009. The group called itself Azad organisation, said. SSP DP Singh before media persons in Patiala. The arrests are important as they suggest that fundamentalist and extremists outfits were still active in North India's Punjab-Haryana belt.
The group's members have confessed plating bombs in mosques in Mewat and Jind other than a blast in Safido. In a similar terror strike, one person had died in Saktapuri, said the members of module. The arrested persons include Sham Niwas, Praveen Sharma, Rajesh Kumar and Gurnam Singh.
It is not ruled out that the group might have links with Hindutva groups that have been involved in terror strikes. During the course of interrogation, the joint police teams are likely to get more information about the organisation's activities.
Just like Islamic terror groups SIMI-IM that were responsible in blasts in Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Varanasi, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and some other cities in India, the Saffron terrorism has also emerged as a big threat for the country and the lists of places targeted by the Saffron extremists is long.
The role of Hindu terror network was established in blasts in Malegaon (targeted twice), Ajmer Dargah, Hyderabad's Mecca Masjid, Modasa town in Gujarat, Samjhauta Express, planing of bombs during Ijtema, incidents of targeting mosques in Jalna, Purna, Bajrang Dal workers' death during bomb-making in Kanpur.
There were similar incidents in Parbhani and Vashi. Other than Abhinav Bharat, the Sanatan Sanstha was accused of bomb blast in Goa and a group was found involved in attacks in Thane and Panvel. An incident of planting bomb inside Jama Masjid, Delh is also suspected to be the handiwork of Hindu terrorists.
