The terror threat to Kolkata seems to be getting stronger. Indian Mujahideen (IM) operatives from Nepal had conducted a reccee of the city around four months ago, say intelligence officers who are grilling Salman Ahmed alias Chhotu, an IM terrorist wanted in several terrorist attacks across India, reports Times News Network. Security agencies started tracking Salman, a native of Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh, after the September 18, 2008, serial blasts in Delhi that killed 30 people and injured 100. He was arrested near the UP-Nepal border a few days ago. According to sources in various agencies that are grilling Salman, he has revealed that most IM operatives have shifted base from Bangladesh to Nepal after the massive crackdown by Bangladesh Rapid Action Battalion in the past few months. Another suspected IM operative, Shehjad Ahmed, who was nabbed in the first week of February from UP, has corroborated this, saying IM has strengthened its Nepal unit for operations in eastern India. Salman has told police that Kolkata is very much on the terror radar, say sources. A few weeks ago, IM operatives had visited Kolkata to activate their sleeper cells.
