India is initiating dire action to totally halt LTTE operations on Indian soil.
Mumbai’s Anti Terrorism Squad is grilling a key member of the Dawood Ibrahim gang, a top Indian underworld leader, for alleged links with the banned LTTE outfit to supply arms for terror activities in India.
It has sought a fresh remand for top lieutenant Mirza Mohiddin Baig, currently under Crime Branch’s custody, to question him in connection with terror links in the country.
Mirza Mohiddin Baig was arrested in Colombo last year. Additional Director General of Police, Rakesh Maria, has confirmed that Baig is being interrogated for terror links in India. He refused to give further details.
Baig, who was on the Interpol’s wanted list, had been arrested in Colombo on May 8, 2009, after a long stint in Sri Lanka, and deported to India. The police had recovered three pistols and 18 live rounds from him.
Since then, the gangster had been in judicial custody until last week when the Crime Branch took over, after his name cropped up again after intelligence reports indicate that D-Company is procuring arms and ammunition from the remaining members of LTTE for operations in the country.
