December 24 — Four Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) men have entered Mumbai to carry out some major attacks in the city with the aim of causing “destruction”, said police on Thursday night.
Launching a manhunt, police has released the photograph of one of the LeT members named Jinnah and has issued an alert in the city. The men were suspected of plotting violence in the holidays of Christmans and New Year.
In a news conference, Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy told to reporters, “The four were identified as Abdul Kareem Moosa, Noor Abu Ilahi, Walid Jinnah and Mahfooz Alam. The four recently sneaked into the city to carry out extremely dangerous activity.”
The four LeT men are in the age group of 20 to 30 years. Roy further said, “The four persons are planning violent attacks that are going to cause destruction.” He warned that the threat is a serious one.
Four LeT Operatives Who Entered Mumbai Could Be Foreigners
Earlier, on Tuesday, the Centre sounded alert for Ahmedabad and Mumbai following intelligence inputs that men of LeT may have sneaked the cities to carry out strikes.
It is believed widely that LeT was behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 that killed 166 people. One more attack on Mumbai could damage the economy of the country.
