Intelligent agencies submitted report against NDF

via HK Correspondent published on January 26, 2007

New Delhi: Central Intelligence Agencies operating in Kerala have submitted their year end 2006 report to the Central Government in New Delhi.


 


The reports suggest that in 2006,  700 cores of rupees have been smuggled through Hawala system for terrorist organizations operating in Kerala. In addition, shiploads of counterfeit currency have been smuggled into Kerala.


 


RAW and Intelligence Bureau have reported that 250 KG of high power explosives and Potassium Cyanide have reached Kerala in 2006.


 


 Intelligence analysis conducted by RAW and IB suggest that wholesale distribution of Hawala Money, explosives, bomb making materials, swords and guns have reached at an alarming proportion in Kerala. Most illegal money transactions, whether wholesale, midlevel, or retail, are conducted in cash. As such, large quantities of money generated from the Middle East through terrorist networks is smuggled into Kerala in clandestine manner to minimize the risk of that illegal money will be seized by law enforcement officials.


 


Most distribution of illegal money is distributed for NDF and other Jihadi terrorist groups. Criminal terrorist groups working for NDF and ISI receive most of the illegal funds. With in the Jihadi groups, there are several operatives that adhere to specific techniques to transport explosives, guns, bombs and money.


 


Intelligence agencies report that within the last few years 3,200 cores of rupees reached Kerala for terrorist organizations. More than 18 terrorist organizations in Kerala receive foreign funds for terrorist activities, reports IB.


 


 RAW and IB estimate that more than 65, 00 active terrorists are in NDF scattered in all districts. From 1996 to 2000 NDF has created 67 communal clashes in Kerala. Yet deaths were rare. During 2000-2006, NDF has created 121 communal clashes and there were 19 death and several victims suffered permanent bodily injuries.


 


The geography of Kerala provides ideal conditions for terrorists. NDF participants and rich Islamic communal leaders provide hiding places, resources and support for NDF terrorists in their criminal activities. Intelligence agencies reported that NDF and other Jihadi groups thrive in Kerala due to vote bank politics and police corruption. NDF and criminal groups working for ISI often use value transfer systems such as hawala, hundi, and underground banking system to launder proceeds from smuggling. Proceeds are used to finance terrorist activities.


 


Professional experts on intelligence and homeland security analysts say that the Central and state government should initiate strict enforcement actions to prevent further growth of NDF including monitoring, interdiction, detention and prosecution of terrorist members of NDF. Instead of providing increased opportunities for their growth for political reasons, government should enact legislation to preserve nation’s security, safety and freedom.
