Terrorism through the seas

20 09 2007

Earlier, terrorists would either come in from Pakistan via land through Kashmir or from Nepal into the border districts of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. They would also come into West Bengal or the North East from Bangladesh.

However, now two arrested LeT terrorists have revealed the new preference for the sea route, saying that most terror outfits use it as it is a much safer option.

According to sources in the Intelligence Bureau, terrorists start on boats from Karachi in Pakistan. From there the boat reaches Jafna in Sri Lanka, where the terrorists get their supply of arms and ammunition.
Here, they are also given a makeover so that they can blend in with local fishermen. Once the makeover is done, these terrorists head for one of the many beaches in Chennai.
