A series of blasts in court compounds across three cities in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh killed fifteen persons and injured over eighty on 23 November 2007. They are the latest link in a chain of comparable terrorist attacks by Islamist groupings that have long received safe haven, sustenance and support from Pakistan and, increasingly, Bangladesh – a chain that includes, over the past three years alone, major terrorist strikes in Delhi, Bangalore, Ayodhya, Mumbai, Varanasi, Hyderabad, Malegaon, Panipat, Ajmer and Ludhiana, and lesser attacks at a number of other locations.

UPDATE:
Ludhiana: A day after a bomb attack by suspected terrorists at a cinema hall in Ludhiana killed seven people and injured 32 others, the Centre on Monday blamed the Punjab state administration for security lapses.

New Delhi: Five persons died and at least 10 were injured when a bomb exploded inside a multiplex cinema hall in Ludhiana on Sunday evening. The 600-seater Shringar theatre on Samrana Road was packed when a massive explosion shook the place at around 2050 hrs IST.

Chandrashekar, the Additional Director General of Police, said he suspected it was a bomb blast but would make a confirmation later. TV channels showed rescue workers struggling to reach the injured inside the darkened theatre. The blast occurred during the screening of a Bhojpuri movie and since it was a holiday, the multiplex was packed to capacity.

“The bomb exploded just after the interval, maybe 5-10 minutes after the break. Most of the people present were from UP and Bihar,” says an eyewitness who was also injured in the blast.
So far, no terror outfit has claimed responsibility but DIG, Intelligence Jagdish Mittal said Khalistan Commando Force, Khalistan Zindabad Force and Muslim Jehadi groups are behind the blast.

“We suspect Babbar Khalsa in collaboration with JeM or LeT, funded by ISI,” he said.

Most wanted Sikh militants living in Pakistan:

Mumbai: Two blasts in four days have security agencies across the country on
high alert. After the explosions at the Ajmer Sharif shrine on Thursday, a high
alert was sounded in all metros including Mumbai.

But for Maximum City – living on the edge after the July 11 serial train blasts last year – the situation is getting complicated. The city’s police force is a harassed lot with the number of hoax calls and false alerts on the rise.
