via published on August 13, 2006

The Special Cell of Delhi Police tracking terrorist threat in the Capital close to Independence Day celebrations has alerted district formations about the entry of six Bangladeshi fidayeen attackers. “These fidayeen attackers are reportedly from Bangladesh-based outfits, Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islami (HuJI) and Jamat-ul-Mujahiddin, and Lashkar is coordinating them,” said a Special Cell official.

Two of them have been named as Abdul Hamsad and Allaudin Miyan, while the names of others are yet to be confirmed. All of them are reportedly in the age group of 20 to 30 and have been asked to carry out suicide bombings in the national Capital.

Subsequently, the presence of six Algerian militants, belonging to al-Qaeda’s sister organisation GIA (Armed Islamic Group), is also being highlighted by intelligence agencies.

Meanwhile, security has been tightened at Shantivan, the memorial of first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, and Chandni Chowk. The national Capital has also been declared a no-fly zone for August 15. Elite commandos of the National Security Guard (NSG) and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) will guard the Red Fort, where political leaders and citizens will be present for the Prime Minister’s address.

Sharpshooters have also been positioned at high-rise buildings in Delhi. Subsequently, a team of Special Cell officers took possession of a bag belonging to Abu Anas and Abrar Ahmad, who were arrested on August 10 from the New Delhi railway station with two-kg RDX.
