Bengaluru: It is now coming to light that the Deccan Mujahideen, which has claimed responsibility of the carnage at Mumbai has made Bengaluru its next target.
The state police have information that the terrorists have devised a plan to attack 5-star hotels and IT companies within 37 days of the Mumbai attacks in the same way as was done in Mumbai.
Three terrorists arrested
Three individuals, Haji, Khader and another person allegedly belonging to the Deccan Mujahideen have been arrested on the Kerala border near Virajapet.
The costal guards have captured a motor-boat used by the terrorists near Bekalakote, Kasaragod. The terrorists might have entered the state using this boat. A link between these terrorists and the Mumbai blasts is suspected.
The Deccan Mujahideen might have spread itself in Karnataka. According to highly placed sources, the state police are carrying out investigations in this regard from two days, and many have been interrogated in Belagavi (Belgaum), Hubballi (Hubli) and Udupi.
The terrorist organizations have a link with a software company in Bengaluru, and the attacks have been planned with the help of engineers in the company.
Main target: 'Bridge hotel'
According to information available to this newspaper, the Windsor Manor hotel has been identified as the main target. The terrorists are using the word 'Bridge Hotel' as a codeword for the hotel, likely because one has to cross a bridge to enter the Windsor Manor.
Central intelligence has issued alerts
The central intelligence department has issued an alert that the Deccan Mujahideen is planning attacks all over Karnataka, including Bengaluru.
Home minister V. S. Acharya has said that security has been tightened in important places, sensitive areas and 5-star hotels.
