They were allegedly given instructions by journalist Muthi-Ur Rahman Siddiqui to spread jihad in the region, the neighbours said.
Siddiqui, it is said, was the secretary of the Students’ Islamic Organisation four years ago.
Subsequently, he shifted to Bangalore where he allegedly came in contact with the banned Bangladesh-based HUJI and recruited operatives for the terrorist outfit.
Sources said Siddiqui allegedly met other terror suspects in the City regularly and conspired to kill political leaders. They were in Bangalore on August 5 and had used a certain Imran’s computer to send hate SMSes and posted inciting video clippings online to spread rumours that North-Eastern people would be attacked.
Dont know about the great optimism about how the particular minority group will turn the corner etc in BRF bt as things are panning out, we seem to be headed for a deep, deep abyss given that it is pretty clear that one particular community( going by the huge number of educated folks from that community turning up in terror and spying acts) is only heading in the reverse direction instead of integrating further with the nation and this can only spell trouble.

Zafar Shoolapur, a terror accused arrested by the Bangalore police in Hubli lived just a stone’s throwaway from Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar’s residence at Badami Nagar in the City all these years.
Zafar, a doctor, and son of a senior officer with the Forest department in Udupi district, had been staying with his parents at house number 27/A, the fourth house from chief minister’s residence for years. Sources in the Police department said Zafar has two brothers - one, a software engineer and another, a doctor in Bangalore. He has a sister, who is also a doctor. According to a neighbour who wished to be unnamed, the family maintained a distance from people.
Even after the news of arrest of Zafar spread like wild fire and mediapersons started gathering, there was hardly any police personnel in the area till afternoon.
“We do not know much about the arrest. We came to know about it only through the newspapers,” said a police constable.
Shocked by the arrest of four terror accused in their backyard, the residents were wondering about the failure of Intelligence people to identify a major security threat near the house of the chief minister.
People of Hubli-Dharwad feel that the twin cities are not safe any more. It may be mentioned here the Anti-Terrorist Cell sleuths from Bangalore had arrested 10 persons- Asadulla Abubakkar, Hafeez Husain, Mohammed Sami Bagevadi, Mohd Yasin, Mohammed Asif, Nadeem Sayeed, Dr Asadulla H A, Nashir Ahmed, Shakeel Ahammed and Dr Mirza Ahamed Baig-- from Hubli and Davangere in 2008 on charges of involving in anti-national activities.
Imran alias Ubedulla, arrested on charges of anti-national activities on Wednesday from Vasanthnagar in Hubli studied Diploma in Tool and Dye Making at NTTF in Dharwad from 2004-05. After completing his course, Ubedulla got a job in Bangalore and later he moved to Dubai, his classmates said.
“He is a good orator and used to say a lot about himself. He used to bunk classes and pick fights with friends occasionally,” they said.
Another arrested, Vaheed Hussain Kanakannavar, is an MBA graduate. Ubedulla Bahadduri is an electrical engineer, Sadiq Lashkari worked as demolisher and Mehaboob Saifuddin, as a mason.
There is an eerie silence in the residences of the terror accused in the City. The parents of the youth were at a loss of words when the mediapersons visited their houses on Thursday.
“A six-member team came to our house on Wednesday and took Vaheed into their custody saying that they have to inquire him,” said Vaheed’s father, Abdul Munaf, a retired railway employee.
Munaf said Vaheed had availed a loan of Rs 2.9 lakh to pursue his MBA degree and was a bit depressed as the bank had issued notice for recovery of the money. “We had promised him that we would repay the loan by selling our house in Gadag,” he said.

Special MCOCA court judge Prithviraj Chavan also imposed a fine of Rs. 17 lakh on Gawli, failing which he will have to undergo an additional three-year imprisonment.
Ten others were also awarded life imprisonment in the case while accused Sunil Ghate was convicted only under Arms Act and has been sent to three years’ rigorous imprisonment.
The court also sent Gawli to ten-year imprisonment each for being a member of the organised crime syndicate and extortion.
“After 2007 BMC elections, when Shiv Sena was not in majority it was our Akhil Bharatiya Sena, who gave them support of four corporators (to attain majority). At that time each of our corporators commanded very high monetary value (for providing support) and there was no reason for me to kill Jamsandekar for Rs. 30 lakh,” Gawli argued.

The plotting station? (Pic-daiji world.com)
The arrest of the 11 youth from Karnataka is just a tip of the ice berg of something big that was in store. Although the police have been associating the name of the Harkat-ul-Jihadi Islami with these youth, the investigations so far would go on to show that this was an independent group which had a single point agenda and that was to protect Islam and eliminate all those who appeared to be a threat to the religion.
While the news regarding the Journalist and the Scientist made it to all the headlines, the more important person in this network was a person by the name Akram who goes by the alias Yusuf. If one looks at the background of this man, the HuJI link does surface since he was said to be a close associate of Shahid Bilal, the HuJI commander from Hyderabad who was killed a year after the Hyderabad twin blasts.
Akram whose information was passed on by the Andhra Pradesh intelligence wing is considered to be the leader of this gang and his job according to investigators was to marshal the youth who believed strongly that the religion was under threat. Akram had links with Shahid Bilal since the year 2004 and they had met a couple of times in Saudi Arabia.
While the Bangalore police claimed that the plot was to eliminate journalists and politicians in Karnataka, the bigger news is that there have been several calls found on Akram’s phone which gives the indication that it was a nation wide operation. During the investigation it was revealed that he was upset with the manner in which some persons were depicting the religion. He wanted to target those persons who had shown Prophet Mohammad in poor light and there was also an incident which upset him a great deal and that was the wrong depiction of the Kaba stone.
Akram according to the intelligence received funding from the underworld and he had decided to set up forces in every state and target those tarnishing their religion. They worked in a closed network while identifying like minded persons who felt strongly about such issues. Even the hard disks that have been seized by the police have a lot of material regarding atrocities against Muslims and some of the youth who have been arrested spoke very often to colleagues about how the community and religion were always under threat.
While Akram sought to carry out the executions with the help of the underworld, some of the youth who were working in high profile positions were tasked with the job of providing data. While the data regarding some politicians and journalists were provided, the final plan of assassination was not drawn up as yet. They were zeroing down on the targets and were to decide as to who had to be eliminated.
Akram will now be quizzed by the central agencies in order to find out whether he has set up similar groups in other states as well. We have managed to bust the Karnataka module, but his call records are indicative that there were more such operations that were being planned in other parts of the country as well.
Sources say that this groups cannot be directly linked to any terrorist group and were working individually. They had a handler in Saudi Arabia with whom they used to liaison with and also seek funds as and when it was required. The police say that they have been getting funds especially from the underworld apart from arms and ammunition to carry out their operation. While looking at the pistols that were seized they were of very high quality and was not picked up from a local market. However the only ammunition that has been found on them so far are the pistols thus giving a clear indication they were only about assassinations.
This group had it not been nipped so early could have grown stronger. They were in the process of setting up more such groups and identifying targets. They worked independent of terrorist groups since they felt that there would be no heat on them. Moreover many of them especially Akram believed that some wrong which was happening to the religion in the aftermath of the investigations into the terror cases were the handiwork of some politicians and also journalists. They felt that by carrying out a series of assassinations in various parts of the country, they could create a fear which in turn would prompt many to be more careful while speaking about their religion.
However this group was careful to chose their targets and have not included any police official in their list. They have only picked a handful of journalists who they believe were anti Islam and also a couple of politicians who have been speaking their mind off against their community.
This is just the beginning of the investigation and there is more to find out. We believe that similar persons have been identified in the Northern states as well. We are keeping a close watch of the kind of information that is being leaked out to such persons and are also ascertaining the content that many have stored in their computers and also the exact reasons behind it, sources in the investigating agency also pointed out.
Considering the strong links that Akram had with Bilal and the fact that they are from Hyderabad it has also increased the interest of the Andhra Pradesh police to find out if a similar group was functioning in their state as well. It is a relatively tough operation says an officer since there are many unassuming persons who are part of this plot. Investigations are on and we are scrutinising those who could be part of it, an AP police official informed.
he Association for People’s Civil Rights(APCR), a City-based organisation, on Thursday said it was contemplating legal action on what it alleged was illegal detention of the five suspects. “Since Tuesday morning, there was no response from the police on the whereabouts of the five. We knocked on the doors of the local police station, the Commissioner’s office and the CCB.
None of them admitted to have arrested them. But 36 hours later, they convene a press briefing to declare they have taken custody of the accused,” said Irshad Ahmed Desai associated with the APCR.

The supposedly "nationalistic" and "educated" Muslim cannot insulate himself from the true Islam. I wonder how Mrs. Ghose will justify the assassination of her journalistic "comrades" at the hands of other cells. Perhaps highlighting how "right wing" journalism alienates Muslims and destroys the secular fabric of the country. So while unfortunate...it's justified...woops I mean not surprising.

NEW DELHI: Vital Army, Navy and nuclear installations in south India were on the terror radar of the suspects arrested in Bangalore and Hubli for allegedly plotting to target MPs, MLAs and journalists in Karnataka. During interrogation, they apparently said Saudi Arabia-based handlers of these terrorists are Pakistanis and Indians.
"Most politicians who were in the hit list of these suspected terrorists belong to BJP, one of them a party Rajya Sabha MP," said an official.
Karnataka Police recovered photographs and sketches of South Indian defence installations from the suspects. DRDO claimed "no sensitive or classified information was compromised" after the busted terror plot revealed involvement of one of its scientists Aijaz Ahmed Mirza.
Police suspect there must be some connection between these recovered photographs and sketches and Mirza, who might have been in touch with others in defence establishments over the months.
Though the police did not find any details relating to nuclear establishments during the raids in Bangalore and Hubli, three of the 11 terrorists - linked to Pakistan-based outfits Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Harkat-ul-Jihad-Al-Islami (HuJI) - admitted during interrogation that they were also asked to do surveillance of these installations by their handlers in Saudi Arabia. Central agency sources said two of the arrested suspects had also visited Tehran before going to Pakistan.
It is learnt that the inputs about these two modules, operating out of Hubli and Bangalore, had come from Andhra Pradesh during technical surveillance on some of the 'remnant' groups of the slain HuJI terrorist Shahid Bilal.
Although Bilal, who had set up network in Hyderabad and other cities in Andhra Pradesh before fleeing to Pakistan, was reportedly shot dead in Karachi, some people belong to the modules created by him are active in many southern states. "Arrest of some more persons of these modules cannot be ruled out at this juncture", said the official.
These details emerged even as DRDO on Friday said that Mirza had been placed as Junior Research Fellow (JRF) for the past few months at the Centre for Air Borne Systems (CABS), a DRDO laboratory, after a thorough background check. "Verification of his antecedents including by police was conducted in the process of Mirza's placement on the temporary position of JRF," the DRDO said in a statement.
