PAK Ready for WAR

PAK ready for WARLahore, Dec 25: In a move which could heighten tension between New Delhi and Islamabad, Pakistan has purportedly moved its tenth brigade to Lahore and ordered its third Armed Brigade to march towards Jhelum. 

Islamabad has also reportedly put its 10th and 11th divisions on high alert. Unconfirmed reports have said militants have also been stationed alongwith the Army at the said locations. 

Also Pakistan's Army has reportedly stationed its troops in the Rajouri and Poonch sectors of J&K. 

Pakistan’s troop build up along the Indian border has also given credence to the current war hysteria between the two nuclear powered states. 

The move comes a day after Pakistan deployed its Army in place of the regular Pak Rangers along its border with India. 

Confirming the news, Additional Director general of BSF, Barmer, UK Bansal said, “There is a lot of activity along at the Pakistan side of India-Pakistan border near Barmer in Rajasthan and Pakistan Rangers have been replaced by the Pakistan Army.” 

The ADG also added that BSF is on full alert and is capable of handling any eventuality.

The deployment is an indication of the level of apprehension on the Pakistani side on an Indian attack. It should be noted that the last time Pakistan Rangers were replaced by Army during the Kargil war. 

The State government of Rajasthan has ordered the residents of border villages to be prepared for relocation. According to sources, the order came after a meeting of state Director General of Police and Home Secretary with official of the Central government. 

This move came just a day after Pakistan Army Chief General Asfaq Kiyani warned India of a befitting reply in the wake of an Indo-Pak war. 

The troops build up by Pakistan could also be seen as a tactic to send a message to the US administration that any tension along its eastern border could jeopardize Pentagon’s anti-Taliban operations in the western sector of the country. 

Also, this is among various steps by Islamabad to tick India of its war preparedness in the wake of a war. 

Diplomatic relations have gone into a tailspin between the two countries in the aftermath of a deadly terror attack on India’s financial capital Mumbai, believed to have been perpetrated by Pakistan based terrorists. 

Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari had on Wednesday vowed to defend the country ‘until the last breath’, and said no compromise would be made with the nation’s sovereignty. 

Meanwhile, after reports of a possible Indian attack on Pakistan, the Pakistan Air Force continued its state of high alert and started aerial surveillance of the Chashma power plant and other sensitive sites. 

There were reports of the fighter jets continuing aerial surveillance over the Chashma nuclear power plant and other sensitive sites. 

Pakistan had put its airbases on high alert amidst fears of Indian ‘surgical strikes’ in the wake of Mumbai terror attacks.

Hotel Taj Reopen After Mumbai War

The Mumbai luxury hotels whose marble interiors became killing fields for terrorists three weeks ago partially reopened on Sunday with pledges to upgrade security to levels similar to those of airports.

The Tata group opened the high-rise wing of its Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel as well as the restaurants and pool areas of the complex, where over nearly three days, four terrorists gunned down 31 people.

The Oberoi group reopened the Trident, the business hotel that suffered less damage in the violence, but it left shut the badly affected luxury Oberoi hotel that stands next door. In all, 32 people died in both hotels.

The 105-year-old “heritage wing” of the Taj, the red-domed Mumbai landmark in which the most fighting took place, might not fully reopen until 2010.

Hotel Taj Mumbai

“When the old wing, the heritage wing, is restored and rebuilt to the extent that it can be, then we will send an even stronger message not only for the Taj but for the whole city that we can be hurt but we cannot be knocked down,” said Ratan Tata, the chairman of the Tata group, whose great grandfather built the hotel. 

The reopening of the hotels is seen as an important step towards resuming normal life in India’s financial capital, which has suffered numerous attacks in the past but none as devastating as the November attacks.

Unlike train bombings in the past, from which the city bounced back immediately, the hotel attacks shut down commercial life in Mumbai’s southern business and tourist areas, for several days. 

The terrorists also attacked the city’s main train station, a Jewish centre and a renowned tourist hang-out, Leopold Cafe, leaving a total of 172 dead and hundreds injured. 

Security was tight at both hotels on Sunday as they held ceremonies attended by clerics of all faiths. “This [multi-faith] ceremony tells you a lot about India: we are a united nation,” said Syed Ather Ali, president of the All India Ulema Association and Muslim representative at the Trident. 

“Luckily none of the people involved in the terror attack were Indian Muslims. That would have been a disaster for our community.”

The hotels were bustling on Sunday with the Taj opening 268 rooms, or nearly half its 565 rooms. The Trident reopened its 550 rooms and said it had at least 80 bookings. 

R.K. Krishna Kumar, the vice-chairman of the Indian Hotels Company that owns the Taj, said new security measures would include armed guards who would blend into the environment of the hotel, luggage screening and background checks on employees.

“I believe this is a turning point for how the hotel industry looks at this threat,” Mr Kumar said. “I think a world-class hotel needs to be an invisible fortress.”

At the Trident, a foreign businessman having a cigarette outside said: “Business and life has to go back to normal. When I come to India I always stay here – a terrorist won’t change my habits.”

Suhel Seth, the managing partner of Counselage, a branding and marketing consultancy, who was checked into the Taj at the time of the attacks, checked in again on Sunday night.

“India has once again shown that the spirit is indomitable but my only worry is that political class will treat this resilience as an excuse for inaction,” he said.

Manmohan Singh :- Pakistan Should Cooperate with us

Manmohan Singh | Prime Minister of IndiaNEW DELHI: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday apologised to the country Prime Minister Manmohan Singh speaks during a discussion on Mumbai terror attacks, in Parliament House in New Delhi. for the government's inability to prevent the Mumbai attacks Prime Minister Manmohan Singh speaks during a discussion on Mumbai terror attacks, in Parliament House in New Delhi.

Making an intervention during the debate on the Mumbai attacks in Lok Sabha, Singh noted the action by Pakistan against Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Mohd Saeed but asserted that Islamabad needed to do "much more" to take things to logical conclusion and convince the world about its actions. 

Outlining steps to gear up the country's security system to meet the "unprecedented threat", he said the government has decided to set up a National Investigation Agency, decentralise NSG, form more commando units, strengthen coastal security by making the Coast Guard the sole force responsible for it and step up air surveillance. "I apologise to the people of the country that this dastardly act could not be prevented," he said referring to the Mumbai strikes and acknowledged that acts of terrorism have witnessed an increase resulting in death of hundreds of citizens. Observing that the "epicentre of terrorism" is located in Pakistan, he underlined that the terror infrastructure in the neighbouring country must be dismantled and India cannot be "satisfied with mere assurances." Singh said India has so far exercised "utmost restraint" but it should "not be misconstrued as a sign of our weakness". Promising to have a comprehensive review of the security machinery of the country, Singh asserted that terrorism will be fought with determination to ensure that the scourge is destroyed from its roots. Declaring that "all means and measures" would be used to deal with terrorism, he said the government cannot "countenance a situation where safety and security of our citizens are violated with impunity by terrorists and other militant forces". The prime minister said the government's immediate priority was to restore a sense of security to the people of the country. The government has to work at three levels, he said. He identified these steps as galvanising the international community into dealing "sternly and effectively with the epicentre of terrorism, which is located in Pakistan", pressing Pakistan bilaterally to act against terrorists and prepare the country to meet "these kinds of assaults". Singh said the Mumbai incident had highlighted "gaps" in the country's preparedness to deal with these kinds of assaults and "we need to equip ourselves more effectively to deal with this unprecedented threat and challenge to our country's integrity and unity".

Mumbai: All 10 terrorists who struck at Mumbai last month have been identified, police officials said here on Tuesday. Mumbai Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Rakesh Maria released eight photographs of the terrorists and their identities in the evening.

One picture was not released since the body of the terrorist - involved in the attack at the Taj hotel - was burnt beyond recognition. His name has been given as Umar and his body was thrown down after the gun battle with the National Security Guard (NSG) commandos Nov 27.

The lone terrorist captured alive, Mohammed Ajmal Amir, was initially identified as 'Kasab,' and he quickly became the face of the Mumbai terror attacks.

His associate, now identified as Ismail Khan, was shot dead by the police near Chowpatty in south Mumbai during the early hours of Nov 27.

Ismail Khan's picture and actions were also captured on some closed circuit TVs installed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) before he escaped with Amir to the nearby Cama and Albless Hospital, then to Metro cinema hall, from there to Nariman Point and finally to Chowpatty.

The three who laid siege at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel were: Bada Abdul Rehaman, Abu Ali and Abu Soheb. The Taj operation was the longest and bloodiest of all at the 13 sites which were attacked during the terror strike.

The duo killed at Nariman House in Colaba, where they laid a bloody siege to a Jewish place of worship, necessitating airdropping of commandos, are identified as Nasir alias Abu Umer and Babar Imaran alias Abu Akasha.

The two terrorists killed in the attack at the Oberoi Trident Hotel have been identified as Fahad Ullah and Abdul Rehaman Chhota.

Further investigations are underway to get the full background details of the nine killed terrorists, their associates and probably local support.

Sensex down by 208 pts as late selling wiped off early gains

Mumbai, Nov 25 (PTI) After a promising start, the Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex today fell by over 250 points on fag-end selling across counters barring consumer durables. The bellwether index closed lower by 207.59 points at 8,695.53, with heavyweight Reliance Industries taking a big hit of over 6.00 per cent.

The wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty also closed down by 54.25 points at 2,654.00. Markets had surged in the morning with the Sensex gaining over 270 points to breach the 9,000 level again on strong cues in Asian bourses after shares rallied in US yesterday.

However, it was a straight fall then as the European stock markets opened lower by 1.0-2.0 per cent. The Planning Commission's observations that economic growth would be lower at seven per cent this fiscal against nine per cent in 2007-08 dampened the sentiment.

Amidst reports of a likely a cut in fuel prices, oil and gas sector index lost 3.86 per cent-- the highest among all indices today-- at 5409.37 witj segment major and Sensex heaviest Reliance Industries dropping by Rs 73.25, or 6.40 per cent, at 1071.70. Aban Offshore fell by Rs 52, or 6.85 to Rs 707.65.

ATS made me hear obscene CD: Sadhvi


Mumbai: Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragnya Thakur on Monday charged the Anti-Terrorism Squad with making her hear an obscene CD, while repeating her earlier allegation of physical and mental torture against the investigating agency.

The Sadhvi and seven other accused - Lt Col Prasad Purohit, Shivnarain Singh Kalsangra, Shyam Sahu, Sameer Kulkarni, Maj (retd) Ramesh Upadhyay, Ajay Rahirkar and Rakesh Dhawde - were produced before the designated MCOCA (Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act) court here on Monday.

The ATS last week booked the blast accused under the stringent MCOCA that would enable them to get their remand any number of times in a period of 180 days from the date the September 29 offence was registered.

The allegations made by the sadhvi in the affidavit (which her lawyer Avinash Bhide filed in the Nashik court last week) have already raised a political storm across the country.

While Prime Minister Manmohan Singh telephoned senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader L K Advani after the latter hit out at the ATS for meting out barbaric treatment to the sadhvi, his emissary, National Security Advisor M.K. Narayanan assured Advani of a probe into the sadhvi's allegations.

Other key accused Purohit also repeated his earlier allegation of torture against the ATS.
