Concieved in 2003 as a joint strategy between the ISI, Pakistan Army, Lashkar and HUGI to use fugitives in KARACHI to Indian youth and bring them to Pakistan for arms and explosive trainning via Bangladesh and Nepal wwhere they are indoctrinated by videos of Babri Masjid and Gujrat riot¶s. Underworld don¶s and fugitives like Riyaz and Iqbal Bhaktal are used as spotters to ensure a steady supply of recruits from India for the project. By using Indian¶s it gives the Pakistan the fig leaf of denying involvement.
The project was conceived as crucial element in Pakistan¶s strategy to counter India¶s Military and economic advantages. Original strategy was to send the trained recruit¶s back to India to plant bags with bomb¶s at strategic location¶s. Pune shows it is now aimed at foreigners in India. Detailed information about Karachi project has come from Abdul Khwaja,Bilals No-2, who was arrested by Indian Intelligence operatives in Bangladesh last year. Other major source of information has been David Headly, who has given the FBI additional details about the project and his role in it as well as the interrogation of Amjad Khwaja, a leading IM operative, arrested recently.
The recruits are being trainned by the ISI in the remote remote region of Balochistan not far from Iranian border. They were taught to construct IEDs from locally available explosives. They are allowed to play games and watch satellite television, unlike millitants in the camps in POK. After the completion of the trainning, agents are infiltrated in India as sleeper cells, waiting for the command to strike. First strike on the shramjeevi Express in 2005, and the most recent one suspected to be in Pune. The project can only be stopped if Pakistan hands over fugitives or India neutralises the operatives.
