  • Bomb Scare In UP: Crude Bomb Found In Akal Takht Express
A crude bomb and a letter purportedly written by the Indian Mujahideen, warning of revenge for the killing of Lashkar-e-Taiba “divisional commander” Abu Dujana, was recovered from the Amritsar-bound Akal Takht Express here today, the police said.
 
 
On being informed, the Government Railway Police stopped the train at Akbarganj railway station, ADG (Railways) BK Maurya said.
 
 
“The train was vacated and extensively checked. A bomb wrapped in ‘sutli’ (jute thread) was found in a packet along with two lighters,” the ADG said.
 
 
After the bomb was defused, the train left Akbarganj station for its onward journey, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) BC Dubey said.
 
 
The letter, which was in Hindi, said, “Dujana ki shahadat ka badla ab Hindustan ko chukana padega - Indian Mujahideen (India will have to pay for Dujana’s martyrdom),” the police said.
 
 
Formed in 2010, the Indian Mujahideen is a terrorist group banned by the Union Home Ministry.
