IIT professor killed, 3 injured as gunmen open fire in Bangalore Bangalore, Dec 28. (PTI): A professor of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, was killed and three others were injured when unidentified gunmen fired indiscriminately inside the prestigious Indian Institute of Sciences here this evening. The police identified the deceased as M C Puri and those injured as Dr Pankaj Gupta, Dr Sangeeta and one Mr Patel. According to police, four to five persons came in a white Ambassador car into the campus of the Institute and opened fire with automatic weapons outside the J N Tata auditorium, where an international conference was on, at around 1700 hours. The injured were admitted to M S Ramaiah hospital. Police have cordoned off the area and launched a hunt for the assailants who fled the scene. The Institute is on the hit list of terrorist groups, including Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba. Asked if it was a terrorist attack, Police Commissioner Ajay Kumar Singh said "we can't say anything at this stage." He said it appeared that an automatic weapon was used in the shooting. "There is no information on how they came and who they were." http://www.hindu.com/thehindu/holnus/000200512282101.htm

BBC reports that a gunman opened fire at a science conference in Bangalore killing one professor and injuring three others including Prof Vijay Chandru, is the founder of the Indian-developed palm-computer, the Simputer. The Times of India reports the story further saying that the attack was aimed at “one Prof Venkatesh.”

"We had been afraid about something like this happening for a long time," said Joint CP Karnal Singh, minutes after he heard about the attack at IISc, Bangalore. For the past two years, the 'chatter' -- the intelligence agencies' term for intercepts -- between terror outfits based in PoK and across the LoC had suggested that Bangalore had become a potential terrorist target. The interrogation of arrested terrorists had further corroborated the intelligence. Apart from India's traditional symbols of power like Parliament, the Red Fort, India Gate, the Gateway of India (Mumbai) and the Indian Military Academy (Dehradun), Bangalore and Hyderabad too have seemed to be on the terrorists' radar for some time. n In March, three LeT terrorists were gunned down and one arrested in Delhi. Two of the module's members were later arrested from Dehradun, with maps of the IMA and of software companies in Bangalore. n In July, the police arrested an AMU-educated engineer who had worked for Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). Maps of HAL facilities in Kanpur and Bangalore were recovered from him. n In August and November, three Harkat ul Jehad terrorists were arrested. They had been trained to attack Bangalore's Software Park and Hyderabad's Hi Tech city.

Terror stikes IT capital Pioneer.com PT Bopanna/ Bangalore Suspected LeT men shoot dead IIT Professor at IISc ---- In a move to spread panic in the IT capital of India, suspected Lashkar-e-Tayyeba ultras attacked the serene campus of the Indian Institute of Science on Wednesday evening and opened fire, killing a professor from Delhi and seriously wounding five attending an international conference. Reports said three to four masked terrorists entered the prestigious campus at 7.20 pm in a white Ambassador car, fired at random from AK-47 rifles at the delegates coming out of the JN Tata Auditorium and fled the scene. Prof MC Puri, a former professor of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, succumbed to his injuries, while the injured delegates were shifted to private hospitals. An emergency operation was performed on Dr Vijay Chandru to remove four bullets but his condition was stated to be critical. The injured included Dr Pankaj Gupta, Mr Patel, Dr Sangeetha and Ms Sonia, assistant professor. Initially, the police were tight-lipped on whether it was a terrorist attack, but Police Commissioner Ajai Kumar Singh confirmed that automatic weapons had been used. The car park in the campus was splattered with blood. The police confirmed the recovery of three magazines but would not confirm whether they had recovered a rifle. Bangalore, which had all along been a safe haven for terrorists of various hues witnessed for the first time a terrorist attack. A high alert has been sounded and major roads barricaded as police began combing operations in the wooded campus. Chief Minister N Dharam Singh has called an emergency meeting of top officials on Thursday morning. The attack comes on the heels of intelligence reports about the possibility of an attack. Reports had warned of a plot following the arrest of two terrorists by Delhi Police, belonging to the Harkat-ul-Jehad based in Bangladesh. Since the police had stepped up security in major software units, the terrorists had zeroed in on the Indian Institute of Science considered to be a soft target. It may be recalled that a Tibetan national had breached the security at the campus a few months ago when the Chinese Prime Minister had visited the campus. Apparently, there was a security lax this time too because a security alert was sounded in the city a couple of days ago following the intelligence input from Delhi. In New Delhi, Home Ministry officials reviewed the situation in an emergency meeting. The Institute came on the hit list of LeT after their last year's annual session in Muridke (Lahore) where they had decided to hit the country's economy by targeting vital installations including the IISc.

He is a very nice and an unassuming person. Who was also part of SIMPUTER project. Incidentally, when I left the country he was there at the airport where I talked to him briefly. He had come there to see off his daughter. Another professor who is my family friend was inside the auditorium so he is safe. Tomorrow we will not be able to walk freely in the IISc Campus ...

There are a number of Moslem students and teachers in various Indian educational institutions who have the potential to be a security threat. One may recall the role of a NDA instructor in the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Likewise, it is not uncommon to encounter Moslem students with anti-Hindu, pro-Pakistan views in these institutes. These people could provide havens and assistance to various terrorists coming in from TSP. A Puki cannot operate in the Desh without local Moslem cooperation The Hindu psyche is so intoxicated and its collective memory is so weak that all this is just going to be forgotten very very soon.

Though it hasn't yet been established who are behind this horrid crime, there are enough indications that its has the signatures of it being sponsored from across the border. That being the case, I really wonder why we should be playing any cricket with them. The country can choose to get rid of terrorism and learn to behave within the realm of civlity or can behave like a pariiah but, why do we need to strive to build our relations with someone who has no intentions to stop sponsoring terrorist activities in our country? Why? Why do we need to pretend everything is hnuky-dory with a country and have diplomatic ties 'reopened' at the top, while nothing has changed in their demenor towards abetting state-sponsored terrorism in our country. Do we need to really play cricket with them? -- Balaji

Karnataka Chief Minister N Dharam Singh on Thursday said the shootout at the prestigious Indian Institute of Science (IISc) that killed a Delhi professor was an act of terrorism. "Preliminary investigations by the city police and vital clues available so far indicate that it was a terror attack. We suspect it could be a handiwork of terrorist organisations," Singh told reporters in Bangalore. "We are yet to identify those behind the incident. No group or individual has claimed responsibility so far. Outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) may be behind the attack

Police suspect ISI hand behind attack Agencies / Bangalore The investigating teams suspect involvement of Pakistan's ISI trained terrorists in Wednesday's attack on IISc, a police source said. "The inputs indicate the involvement of ISI trained terrorists," the highly placed source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said. The police suspect it was a four-member gang, which had executed their plan of attack, leaving a retired professor of IIT Delhi dead and four others wounded. Contrary to the belief of the city police the attackers did not use any vehicle, the source maintained the gang used a car and managed to flee using it. The source said the investigating teams did not also rule out the role of underworld don Abu Salem's associates in the attack. Abu Salem, a key accused in the Mumbai serial blasts, has been brought in Bangalore to undergo polygraph and brain mapping tests. City Police Commissioner Ajay Kumar Singh has ruled out the possibility of the terrorists using any vehicle. No terrorist outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack. Chief Minister N Dharam Singh has said police have obtained certain "clues" and hoped to zero in on the culprits soon.
Blame everything on ISI and go back to sleep.

Lalita stood transfixed as the terrorist aimed the AK-56 at her. A second later, she found herself pushed to the ground by someone behind — it was her 61-year-old professor. Most of the 50 rounds that the terrorist fired hit Professor M.C. Puri, right in his chest. "He saved my life. If it wasn't for him, I would have been dead," Lalita, a lecturer at Delhi University's Rajdhani College, told Puri's wife Raksha on Wednesday night. "They were crossing the road when the firing started and uncle pushed her and came right in the line of fire," said Nisha Jaggi, the professor's niece. His friends remember Puri as the peace-broker. "We always knew him as a jovial, polite and humble man. But on Wednesday evening, Puri made the ultimate sacrifice and showed us that he was made of different stuff," said colleague Ashok Malhotra. Puri fell to terrorists' bullets at the Indian Institute of Science on Wednesday. Hundreds of his friends, students and relatives gathered at his Mount Kailash Apartment in South Delhi's Kailash Colony on Thursday as his son Saurabh brought the body from Bangalore around 9 p.m. The family had sent Puri's grandchildren away, hoping to spare them the trauma. Puri was not just an academic. He was an active member of the local RWA. "For the past 35 years, a dozen of us — all college professors — would gather every alternate Sunday and discuss university issues," said Professor (retd) H.C. Bakshi, who taught at the Motilal Nehru College. “In fact, he was a great mediator.” Puri started his career at New Delhi’s Hansraj College. Later, he shifted to IIT, Delhi and retired last year after a 20-year stint. He was also planning to bring out a journal on the Operations Research Society of India, of which he was one of the founding members. Puri will be cremated at the Lodhi crematorium on Friday at 11a.m

Jehadi groups operating in neighbouring Islamic countries are known to possess AK-56 rifles.

Attack in Bangalore has roots in Bangladesh Pioneer.com Neeraj Chauhan/ New Delhi There are definite indications of the involvement of terrorist outfits with roots in Bangladesh in the attack on the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) at Bangalore on Wednesday night. Mohammad Ibrahim, the Bangladeshi arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police in connection with the blast in Hyderabad, had disclosed during interrogations that IT centres like Bangalore were on the hitlist of leading terror outfit Lashkar-e-Tayyeba. "The modus operandi of the terrorists who barged into the premises of IISc, outside the JN Tata Auditorium, more than suggests that it could have even been a fidayeen attack. The terrorists escaped since there was no retaliation from any quarter. These are tell-tale signs of Lashkar's involvement," said a senior Delhi Police official. Initial investigations have hinted at the involvement of a four-member gang, which had executed the plan of attack, leaving a retired professor of IIT, Delhi, dead and four others wounded. Professor MC Puri's body was flown to the Capital on Thursday evening from Bangalore. Though no terrorist outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack, the disclosure of Ibrahim clears the involvement of Lashkar indirectly with one of the Bangladeshi outfits. Police officials here are of the opinion that Lashkar's offshoot Harkat-ul-Jihad was behind the killings as Ibrahim during his interrogations had specifically pointed out that Bangalore was the target for the next attack. The blast at Hyderabad took place on October 12 last. "The attacks on two major metros are clear indication of Lashkar's growing tentacles in South India," said the officer and added: "These militants are trained by Inter-Services Intelligence of Pakistan and then sheltered in Bangladesh. Lashkar has been using Bangladeshi groups for striking in India and the alert given by intelligence agencies recently mentioned Bangalore and Hyderabad as the prime targets especially in context of the presence of American interests in the two city." "Both Hyderabad and Bangalore have more than 2,000 IT industries and they have been targeted because of increasing international trade of India, which Pakistan wants to neutralise," the officer added. Additionally Hyderabad is hosting the annual convention of Indian Science Congress in January. NRIs are also meeting here in January for their annual Pravasi Bharat jamboree. After the neutralisation of a sleeper cell of LeT in Delhi in March, the Delhi Police had repeatedly been sounding wake-up calls about plans of jihadi terrorists to target IT companies in Bangalore. Hoax calls to blow up IT companies in Bangalore since March have created an atmosphere of terror there. The recent hoax message of an attempt by al Qaeda to blow up Parliament had also originated from Thirunelveli in Tamil Nadu. It is a hotbed of the activities of the Al Ummah, which had organised a number of serial blasts in Coimbatore in February 1998. Following Wednesday's attack security has been beefed up in all the embassies, IT industries, government establishments, institutions, army establishments, public places and hotels in the capital and in all the metros. The security officials are checking the railway stations in Delhi and all the vehicles entering the city from any of the route are going through tight vigil.
They have roots in Hyderabad, Lucknow, Mumbai, Kerala and Azamgarh. My guess, they can find them in above location, it all depends on police and UPA government whether they are really interested not to offend pious followers of peaceful religion. Otherwise expect more attacks.

Posted by: Hauma Hamiddha Dec 30 2005, 08:45 AM

We must keep in mind the following: There are followers of the pious prophetic delusion of over a billion strong, who could provide intelligence to their fellow maniacs across the borders. There are BNdeshi students on number of Indian campuses who are a potential security hazard. Big metros like Hyd and Bang have pockets of the pious that are no-go areas for any kind of rule of law. In effect they are mini-TSPs embedded in Hindustan, where a Sipahi of the Lashar-i-momeen could slip in wihout being noticed and well-cared for. Our seculars will go on about the rights of their Tall fair tight assed friends.
