The notice states that officers are not allowed to share information under any circumstances without prior permission from the department. In case of emergency the facts will need to be verified and prior approval from the department will be taken. The notice also states that some of the information published on the news platforms regarding the day to day and other matters of the department is not official. Publishing such news will mislead people about the work of the department and create a false impression about the spread of the disease.

Pakistan connection of IED found in Ghazipur mandi, delivery of explosives to India through drug smugglers

Pakistan connection of IED found in Ghazipur mandi, delivery of explosives to India through drug smugglers

An RDX-packed Improvised Explosive Device ( IED) bomb was found in Delhi 's Ghazipur Mandi on Friday. After this Delhi Police started investigating the matter. At the same time, now the police investigation has given some sensational information from intelligence reports, which is quite surprising. Actually, there have been indications that Pakistan is sending IEDs to India by making drugs sent through land and sea routes.

According to the report of Hindustan Times , it has been learned that the bomb planted in Ghazipur Mandi was to explode at one hour and eight minutes. However, it is not yet known how many consignments of bombs have been sent to India. But the Punjab Police alone has seized 20 IEDs, 5-6 kg of ID and 100 grenades. Terrorists present in Pakistan have been asked to prepare more IEDs and tiffin bombs for blasts in electoral states like Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, Gujarat and Delhi apart from Punjab.

The motive is to spread communal panic

According to security agencies, cross-border drug smugglers dealing in Afghan heroin and opium have been tasked to transport IEDs to India through drones and sea-going vessels. A senior official said, "Consignments of IEDs with drug money are still coming to India with the aim of spreading communal panic after a major incident." 26/11 accused and Pakistan-origin Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist David Coleman Headley had disclosed to the NIA that Pakistani terrorists use drug money to fund the attacks.

Explosives were kept with bicycle bearings and nails

The fact is that if the PCR of Delhi Police had not shown promptness in the Ghazipur case, many innocent people would have been killed in the blast. At the same time, an atmosphere of uncertainty would have arisen in the capital. The explosives were housed inside a steel tiffin with cycle bearings and nails, which when exploded would have killed people in the form of deadly pellets. The bomb was designed in such a way that the RDX would form a main charge with ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, which would act as a secondary charge for the blast.

The Indian Mujahideen's signature move was the tiffin bomb

In the past decade, tiffin bombs were the signature move of the Pakistan-sponsored Indian Mujahideen terrorist group. They were used in the 2005 Sarojini Nagar and Paharganj Bazar blasts. The same device was used by the terrorist organization in the blasts in Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Varanasi, Haldwani, Jaipur, Hyderabad and Mumbai. Hundreds of innocent people were killed across the border in blasts carried out by radicalized local terrorists at the behest of their masters.
