Indian Mujahideen mastermind and Mumbai blast case accused Khurshid Alam shot dead in Nepal

As per reports, Principal of a private school in Nepal’s Sunsari district, who was shot dead by unknown bike-borne assailants on 20th September, has been identified as the chieftain of Indian Mujahideen terror outfit.

Khurshid Alam, the ringleader of the terrorist outfit, who was suspected to be involved in the 1993 Mumbai attack, was working as the Principal of Raiyan National School. Alam was shot in his head, abdomen and legs and died on the spot. The attackers fled the site, which is seven kilometre from the Indian territory.

A high-level police source confirmed to ANI that, “he is publicly identified as Khurshid Alam. He was on the radar of Indian Intelligence as he was suspected to be involved in the 1993 Mumbai attack. The Indian government, about two decades ago, requested the Nepal government to hand over him to them which could not happen as Nepal denied.”

At the time when Bamdev Gautam of the then Communist Party of Nepal- Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) was the Home Minister, India had urged Nepal to hand him over. The Indian government, at that time, in co-operation with the Intelligence Bureau, had also given the location details and other relevant information to the Nepal government, informing that Alam was involved in terrorist activities. But Bamdev Gautam had then rejected the Indian government’s proposal to hand him over. Alam was a member of the CPN-UML party.

Alam, who was also a cleric, had sheltered four other terrorists who were involved in the Mumbai attack and helped them to flee to the Middle East by arranging false passports for them.

Recently in February this year, Delhi police after arresting Ariz Khan, a suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist who was allegedly involved in the Mumbai bomb blast had made a shocking revelation that the two terrorist organisations, Indian Mujahideen (IM) and the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) have allegedly set up their base in Nepal and the operatives are frequently visiting India to indoctrinate unemployed youth into their community to fill the void left after the arrest of top leaders of IM and SIMI.

The NIA recently filed a supplementary charge sheet against 17 absconding accused of IM. Entering the country through the Indo-Nepal border, the plan is to revive the old team of these terror outfits who have been declared absconding by the security agencies.
