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.

There are already many cases against the priest arrested for conversion in Goa: Chief Minister

There are already many cases against the priest arrested for conversion in Goa: Chief Minister

Panaji. Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said the pastor, who was arrested recently for allegedly luring people to convert to Christianity in the state, already has several cases, including one related to the death of a person. Talking to reporters on Saturday, Sawant said that the state government fully respects the right to religious freedom enshrined in the Constitution, but there will be no tolerance for forcing people to convert with the lure of money or other things.

Dominic D'Souza, a pastor operating in North Goa's Saligao, about 20 km from the capital Panaji, and his wife Joan were arrested on Thursday after two people filed separate complaints, a police official said. In these complaints, it was alleged that both were involved in conversion. The official had said that the pastor and his wife were allegedly motivating people to convert to Christianity by offering money or luring them to get treatment for the disease.

Sawant said that earlier also the cases of forced conversions allegedly by D'Souza had come to the notice of the police. He said a case was also registered against the pastor in connection with the death of a man, to whom he allegedly applied "miraculous oil". Sawant said that action has been taken against the priest as per law and the investigation will continue. The police have also booked the priest and his wife under sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and indulging in willful and malicious acts with intent to outrage religious sentiments, besides drugs and miracles. A case has been registered under the provisions of the Remedy (Objectionable Advertisement) Act.
