Saturday, October 28, 2006
According to Karnataka DGP B S Sial, they were intercepted by police when they were riding a bike early morning and apprehended after a shootout. The gunfight took place near the city's Vijaynagar extension. Two police constables and one of the militants sustained minor injuries.
Sial said, an AK-47 rifle, a foreign made pistol, a cell phone, detonators, a digital camera and passports were also recovered from them.
Husain is thought to have crossed the Line of Control in June this year through the Rajwar forests in northern Kashmir. He hid himself in the Harwan area until he received instructions to travel to Mysore.
Al-Badr operatives have financed Rs. 300,000 to the Srinagar cell led by an operative code named "Imran". Hussain has been linked to this cell. Investigators believe that Hussain was one of several Al-Badr operatives despatched to execute terror strikes outside Jammu and Kashmir.
Al-Badr was allegedly formed by the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in June 1998.
