Bengaluru: There is a high alert issued in Delhi after inputs suggested that anti national elements could cause trouble.
Security forces have been deployed especially in northeast Delhi after inputs were received that certain Islamist elements would cause trouble. Although Delhi has busted several modules and the intelligence agencies have unearthed an International network behind the riots, there is fresh intelligence that attempts are being made to fan violence again.
The police have managed to get the situation under control, but there are concrete reports suggesting that attempts are still being made to incite violence.
The agencies had said that there is an international conspiracy behind the riots, which had left 50 dead and over 200 injured. A close watch was kept on the Friday prayers as agencies fear that calls to fan violence may be given.
Police sources say that nearly 2,000 rioters have been identified through the facial recognition software. There will be attempts to derail the investigations and ensure that peace never returns. The police also said that the rioters have specifically targeted religious places, hospitals and schools. All these are indicators that these persons are trying to shut down the system.
Union home minister Amit Shah had said in the Rajya Sabha that the agencies have informed the government about an International conspiracy behind the riots. Pakistan has been pumping in a lot of money and distributing it through hawala channels in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, the agencies have learnt. There is a need to keep a close watch on the congregation of the Muslims especially during Friday prayers, the IB has said. Attempts would be made to infiltrate such meetings and fan the violence, the agencies have also maintained. Similar attempts would be made not just in Delhi, but in other parts of the country and hence a strict vigil must be maintained, the IB advisory also read.
