ISI’s ‘Medical Tourism’ Alarms Security Agencies

May 27, 2016

(India Today) – A botched terror test-run in New Delhi has left security agencies alarmed about a new ISI-backed module whose operatives were able to infiltrate the national Capital, posing as Afghan medical tourists, intelligence sources disclosed to India Today. The mastermind of the failed terror bid in December last was Maulana Abdul Rehman, better known as MAR in Jehadi circles, highly-placed sources revealed. He is believed to be a plotter of the 1999 hijacking of the Indian Airlines’ IC 814 flight from Nepal to Kandahar in Afghanistan. Rehman has now fallen out with Maulana Masood Azhar, the founder of the Jaish-e-Mohammad group and one of the three terrorists India freed to secure the release of the IC-814 passengers in 1999.
