The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) killed a man suspected to be involved in planting a bomb in a train near Ujjain. The encounter continued for more than eight hours in the Thakurganj area of Lucknow. The Hindu interviewed the chief of U.P. ATS, Asim Arun, who spearheaded the operation. Following is the excerpts of the interview:
Why did members of the alleged terror module go all the way from Lucknow (where they had rented a house) to Bhopal to plant a bomb in the train?
I don’t know.
You

have arrested people linked to the blast on a train in Ujjain?
We have arrested three people who did not actually go to plant the bomb, but they belong to the same group. I would not like to make a guess.
You should ask the M.P. police.
On Wednesday night when an encounter was on with Saifullah, who was killed, you said there could be two more people inside the house?
We have a fibre optic camera and we drilled a hole in the wall of the house where the encounter was on, and dropped the camera inside. It appeared to us that there were two more people. Actually it was a blanket lying on the ground, which we mistook. So we thought there could be more.
Pistols, pellets, ammunition were recovered from the Lucknow house. Where did they get all this from?
We have arrested two weapon suppliers — Fakre Alam from Etawah and Shailendra Yadav from Kanpur. They are the ones who supplied the arms and ammunition.
Do they have criminal cases?
I have no idea.
After declaring on Tuesday that the accused belonged to Islamic State-Khorasan province, why have you retracted from the statement today?
It’s a self-proclaimed module. They are self-radicalised, they were using Islamic State flags, but whether IS announced that these men were working for them… we don’t have any such information.
What do you mean by self-proclaimed?
Whenever IS plans an attack, they usually leave a video or a graphic message. We have not come across anything so far. We recovered a hand-painted black flag of IS from the house.
Why didn’t U.P. police ever get a wind about this module which was operating from this house in Lucknow?
They had rented this house two months ago and said they were students. The house belongs to a person who lives abroad.

‘Suspects were IS-inspired’
A day after the Uttar Pradesh police issued a press statement that those involved in the Ujjain train blast belonged to the Islamic State, they retracted it, claiming there was no evidence linking these individuals to the terror group.
The U.P. police said the accused were “self-proclaimed” members of the terrorist group, and “they fancied themselves as being members of the IS.”
“There

is nothing to show that they were part of the IS. They were self-proclaimed sympathisers of the outfit; their affiliation to the outfit was one-sided,” Javeed Ahmed, U.P. DGP, told The Hindu on Wednesday.
It was the Telangana police who had been tracking the online activities of the nine Uttar Pradesh-based men; it was on the basis of specific information provided by them that the Madhya Pradesh and U.P. police could nab the accused within hours of their allegedly planting a “pressure pipe bomb” on a train in Bhopal.
None of the police officers in M.P or U.P. could say why the accused, who were all living in a rented house in Lucknow, travelled more than 600 km to Bhopal to plant a bomb in a passenger train. The explosion left nine persons injured.
Another police official said: “The accused were under watch and we were tracking them. We sounded an alert after we noticed that three of them had travelled to Bhopal all of a sudden. We believe that they sensed they were under watch as they were frequently changing their online identities. They were getting directions from more than one handler, who claimed to be abroad.”
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan claimed that Atif Muzaffar, a resident of Kanpur was the “mastermind of the attack” and the accused belonged to the Islamic State. “They clicked the photo of the bomb and sent it to their handler in Syria. One of them is a mechanic and they learnt the preparation of the bomb through Internet,” Mr. Chouhan told a news agency.

Muzaffar, who is alleged to have travelled to Bhopal along with two others, Danish Akhtar and Syed Meer Hussain, to plant the bomb on the train, had dropped out of an engineering course he was pursuing at the Aligarh Muslim University.
“He failed in a physics paper and was expelled from college following that, was not doing much since then,” said an M.P. police official.
Muzaffar and others were staying in a rented house in Lucknow for the past two months and told their landlord that they were students. They left their homes in Kanpur and Kannauj saying they were moving to Lucknow for better prospects.

U.P. ATS chief Asim Arun told The Hindu, “It’s a self-proclaimed IS module. They are self-radicalised but whether the IS announced that these men were working for them, we don’t have any such information.”
The Home Ministry said on Wednesday that it was upset with the way the U.P. police handled the operation. They should have refrained from giving live commentary on television channels, it said.
A senior Home Ministry official said the Ujjain train blast case and the Lucknow encounter would be transferred for probe to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). NIA teams visited Ujjain and Lucknow on Wednesday.
“The U.P. police jumped the gun in claiming that the accused belonged to IS,” said the official.

जागरण संवाददाता, वाराणसी : नई दिल्ली से हावड़ा को जाने वाली पूर्वा एक्सप्रेस (12382) मंगलवार सुबह हादसे का शिकार होने से बाल-बाल बची। चौखंडी स्टेशन के पास कपलिंग टूटने से सभी 24 बोगियां इंजन से अलग हो गईं। घटना सुबह छह बजे की है, उस समय अधिकांश यात्री सोये हुए थे। तेज गति में जा रही ट्रेन की बोगियां अलग

होने से झटका लगने पर तमाम यात्री बर्थ से गिर पड़े। कुछ अनहोनी की आशंका में यात्री बोगियों के भीतर इधर-उधर भागने लगे।1दूसरी ओर इंजन लहराने से ट्रेन पायलट रहमान का ध्यान पीछे गया तो उन्होंने पाया कि बोगियां आधा किलोमीटर पीछे छूट चुकी थीं। उन्होंने आनन फानन इमरजेंसी ब्रेक लगाकर इंजन को रोका। तेज गति में जा रही बोगियां अलग होने से यात्रियों को जोरदार झटका लगा, लोग एक दूसरे के ऊपर मुंह के बल गिर गए। हादसे के बाद लोगों को हल्की फुल्की चोट भी आई। इधर, गार्ड अतीक अहमद ने बिना इंजन पटरी पर भागती बोगियों को ब्रेकवॉल्ब जामकर नियंत्रित किया। 1 अंतत: कंट्रोल को सूचना देने के साथ ही इंजन फिर से जोड़ा गया और ट्रेन 6.54 बजे आगे के लिए रवाना की गई। ट्रेन के 7.15 पर कैंट रेलवे स्टेशन पहुंचने पर परिचालन विभाग के अफसरों ने पायलट व गार्ड का बयान दर्ज किया। इसकी तात्कालिक जांच रिपोर्ट रेलवे बोर्ड को भेज दी गई है। बोर्ड ने पूरे प्रकरण की जांच के निर्देश दिए हैं। उल्लेखनीय है इससे पहले भी कानपुर के पुखरावां में रेल हादसा हुआ था, और कई लोगों की इसमें जान गई थी, इस तरह की घटनाओं के बार बार होने से लोगों में रेल से यात्र करने में डर लगने लगा है। पूर्वा एक्सप्रेस में हुए हादसे से लोगों में खासा आक्रोश भी देखा गया।

को भारी पड़ सकता है। क्योंकि 13 मार्च को होली है। जाहिर है कि इससे उन यात्रियों को असुविधा होगी जो पर्व मनाने के लिए घर जाएंगे। वैसे भी त्योहारी सीजन में ट्रेनों में भीड़ बढ़ जाती है।
लंबी दूरी की ट्रेनों में अभी से इसका असर नजर आ रहा है। ऐसे में यात्रियों को मुसीबत का सामना करना पड़ सकता है। रेलवे के मुताबिक तीन दिन तक 68735 रायगढ़-बिलासपुर मेमू, 68736 बिलासपुर-रायगढ़ मेमू, 68737 रायगढ़-बिलासपुर मेमू व 68738 बिलासपुर-रायगढ़ मेमू रद्द रहेंगी।
इसी तरह 9 से 11 मार्च तक 58213 टिटलागढ़-बिलासपुर पैसेंजर संबलपुर से बिलासपुर के मध्य रद्द रहेगी। इसके अलावा 58214 बिलासपुर-टिटलागढ़ पैसेंजर बिलासपुर से संबलपुर के मध्य, 58118 गोंदिया-झारसुगड़ा पैसेंजर बिलासपुर में समाप्त की जाएगी। यह ट्रेन झारसुगुड़ा से बिलासपुर के बीच नहीं चलेगी।
यह ट्रेन बिलासपुर स्टेशन से ही गोंदिया के लिए रवाना होगी। 58111 टाटानगर-इतवारी पैसेंजर झारसुगुड़ा स्टेशन में समाप्त होकर वापस 58112 इतवारी-टाटानगर, पैसेंजर बनकर टाटानगर के लिए रवाना होगी।
यात्रियों को इस ट्रेन की सुविधा झारसुगुड़ा से बिलासपुर के बीच मध्य नहीं मिलेगी। साथ ही 58112 इतवारी-टाटानगर पैसेंजर को बिलासपुर स्टेशन में, 58113 टाटानगर-बिलासपुर पैसेंजर को झारसुगुड़ा स्टेशन में और 58114 बिलासपुर-टाटानगर पैसेंजर झारसुगड़ा स्टेशन से ही टाटानगर के लिए रवाना होगी।

The four men had made contact with pro-Islamic State Facebook accounts, and downloaded jihadist material, ahead of the attack on the Bhopal-Ujjain train.
Four men named by Uttar Pradesh police in connection with the explosion on the Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train on Tuesday morning had been under surveillance of intelligence services for attempting to set up an Islamic State-inspired jihadist cell, government sources have told The Indian Express. The surveillance had not, however, thrown up signs of an imminent attack, leading authorities to hold back arrests in the hope of gathering further evidence.

said a sweep was ordered Tuesday after intelligence agencies picked up mobile phone chatter on the train explosion and the suspects.
Police identified the three men held in Kanpur as and Fakhr-ul-Alam while a fourth, Saiful, was holed-up inside a Lucknow house where ATS personnel were trying to flush him out.
The four men, police sources familiar with the surveillance claimed, had made contact with pro-Islamic State Facebook accounts, and downloaded jihadist material, ahead of the attack on the Bhopal-Ujjain train.
Though police would not say what role the men are believed to have had in the bombing, UP Additional DG (Law and Order) Daljit Chaudhary said “all suspects are related to the Ujjain train blast”.
“We were informed that a few suspects were lodged in Kanpur and Lucknow. Policemen and senior officers of the ATS went in search,” Chaudhary said.
UP DGP Javeed Ahmad told The Indian Express that the operation was being carried out on the basis of inputs from central agencies about the involvement of extremists.
Intelligence inputs to UP police said the suspects could be part of an Islamic State module. “The situation is fluid at the moment. We have given whatever information we had to UP police and they are working on it. Concrete information on the antecedents and motive of the suspects will be clear only after they are thoroughly interrogated,” a source in a central intelligence agency said.
Teams of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) too have been sent to Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh to question the suspects held there and inspect the IED remains found in the train coach.
None of the four suspects in UP is thought to have either travelled to serve with or received training from Islamic State units in Syria or Afghanistan, government sources said.
Earlier this year, the NIA said it had arrested 52 individuals in Islamic State-inspired terrorism plots, with 12 cases being registered in 2016. Thirty-two of those arrested held diplomas, graduate degrees or higher qualifications.
“We will have a clearer picture of precisely what the relationship of these four were with Indian jihadists already with the Islamic State once investigators have the opportunity to trawl through their computers and mobile phones,” a police officer said.
In charges filed last summer, the NIA named Karnataka-born Indian Mujahideen fugitive Shafi Armar, now thought to be based in Syria’s Raqqa, as a key recruiter for the Islamic State. Names of other recruiters have also figured in subsequent NIA investigations.
The bomb used on the Bhopal-Ujjain train, sources said, was fabricated from sawn-off metal pipe, filled with gunpowder — a simple design that has the potential to inflict lethal casualties if built properly. However, the sources said, flaws in the design of the bomb meant the explosion only caused minor injuries to nine people.
Earlier plots, like a strike on a 2013 campaign rally held by Narendra Modi in Patna, and attacks by the al-Qaeda inspired Base Movement in Bangalore, Chennai and Pune last year, also used similar devices.
“It’s probable the design was downloaded from the Internet, just like in those earlier plots,” a source familiar with the investigation said. “However, the fact that the explosion fizzled suggests they probably did not test and refine their designs.”

Takes four hours to remove carcasses
Nine buffaloes were run over by the Jaipur-Bandra train at 1.12 p.m. near Narangi Phata in Virar on Tuesday.
According to the Western Railway officials, the incident took place when the train was approaching Virar station. A senior railway official said, “A herd of nine buffaloes suddenly came in the way of the train and got run over. It took nearly four hours for railway officials to remove the carcasses which were strewn all over the tracks. The engine also was damaged in the accident.”

officials said that they did not call the accident relief train because they thought that it was a minor incident. The accident relief train would also have to be brought from either Valsad or Bandra. An official said, “There are no such trains at any of the stations in between these stations. The relief train carries cutters and other equipment which enables clearing of tracks immediately.”
The delay in clearing the tracks caused express trains to be diverted for nearly three hours. Officials said necessary arrangements were made to help passengers who were on the Jaipur-Bandra train.
The authorities had to finally take the help of the fire brigade to remove the carcasses stuck to the wheels and tracks. An official said, “The bodies were stuck between the bio-toilet and the tracks. Seven were stuck beneath coaches and two got entangled in the engine. The train could resume its journey only at 5.15 p.m.”
Mukul Jain, Divisional Railway Manager, Western Railway, said, “We conduct exercises to tell owners of cattle to keep them away from tracks. It is unfortunate that this incident took place. We will be lodging an FIR against the owner. He will be booked under the Railway Property (unlawful possession) Act, 1966.

DELHI: In the first-ever strike in India by the so-called Islamic State, a module radicalised by the deadly terrorist organisation triggered a low-intensity blast in a train in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday, injuring 10 passengers.
The morning blast on the Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train at Jabri railway station, the first instance of a terror strike by an IS module in India, spurred the Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh police to launch coordinated operations in the two states. Eight members of the group were arrested, while UP's anti-terror squad was engaged in an operation in Lucknow to capture its leader Saifulllah.
Holed in a house in the Thakurganj area of Lucknow, Saifullah fired at the ATS personnel who tried to arrest him, and an encounter was on at the time of going to press.
Sources in central intelligence agencies as well as MP and UP police confirmed that that the module owes allegiance to IS, but were not clear whether the directive to carry out the attack came from an "online handler" of the international terrorist network currently engaged in a grim battle of survival in Iraq and Syria. IS is known for its federated way of functioning where it encourages jihadis loyal to it to select their targets and hit them.
So far, intelligence agencies had been able to nip terror plots by IS-inspired jihadis before they could be executed.
Sources said all the accused have UP links, and on Tuesday morning, one arrest led to another, before the UP ATS caught up with the gang leader Saifullah.
Sources said three of the accused — Danish, Mir Hussain and Atish Muzaffar — were arrested from Pipariya in MP. Two more, Mohammad Faisal and Mohammad Irfan, who are siblings, were nabbed from Jajmau near Kanpur, while another, Alam, was picked up from Etawah in UP.
Another member, suspected to be the courier of the explosive which went off in the train, was injured in the explosion and was arrested from the spot.
Police want to take Saifullah alive, which led to the hours-long gunbattle. Equipped with night-vision devices, police were preparing for a night-long stand-off, and to foil any escape bid by the two heavily armed terrorists.
The operation was expected to carry through the night as Saifullah, accompanied by another armed member of the module kept firing at the police personnel.
A top intelligence official told TOI that the blast in the passenger train was a "trial run" by the module, which was planning major attacks and had made enough preparations for the same. Intelligence agencies who had been trying to locate module members who radicalised themselves by accessing online IS's jihadi propaganda.
In Lucknow, the encounter began after ATS commandos broke into the room where Saifullah had locked himself up. The police action came after specific inputs from the MP ATS.
Police first lobbed chilli grenades and tear gas shells into the premises to smoke out the occupants. However, Saifullah locked himself inside a room and reportedly opened fire at the commandos.
Police sources said the house where Saifullah was holed up belonged to a resident of Malihabad who was currently in the Gulf.
UP ADG (law and order) Daljeet Chaudhary said police were exercising maximum restraint in order to nab the suspect alive. "The commandos were in the process of entering the room by creating a hole in the concrete roof of the room where the suspect is holed up," he told TOI.Union home minister Rajnath Singh inquired from UP DGP Javeed Ahmed about the operation.
This is for the first time that an attack has been carried out by IS in India, using the recruits radicalized from within the country. Previously, IS had tried to carry out many attacks in Indian cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, through various modules but all such attempts were foiled.In last one year, NIA and police of various states have arrested about 60 Indian-origin IS recruits before they could carry out attacks. These men were part of at least 6-7 modules, which couldn't carry attacks.
The NIA, government sources said, will be brought into the Ujjain investigation.
