LeT has formed death squads and is monitoring PM Modi, assassination plot by Hafiz Saeed: TimesNow

The report says the death squad of the LeT has penetrated into the Lutyen's zone and has been monitoring the movements of the PM.

News channel Times Now has claimed that they have accessed an intelligence report which says that the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba has been monitoring movements of PM Modi and the PM is being treated as the number 1 target of the dreaded terrorist group.

The report claims that the channel has accessed an internal security note by the Intelligence Bureau which claims that a sleeper cell of the dreaded terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba has penetrated into Delhi’s Lutyens area where all the offices and residences of the ministers and top bureaucrats are located.

The report claims that Lashkar has formed death squads and has been tracking the movements of PM Modi in and around the area. The document also reportedly says that the Lashkar sleeper cell has reconnoitred the route from 7, Lok Kalyan Marg (the PM’s residence) to his office in the South Block. It also says that the death squad has received orders from their commander Hafiz Saeed to assassinate PM Modi.

The report goes ahead to state that before the 26/11 attacks, David Coleman Headly was given the exact same task of monitoring the important buildings and routes in specific locations. The report further states that the intelligence agencies have received several clues and important pieces of information over the last few months and the security around the Raisina Hill area has been tightened significantly.

In the last few days, the security agencies have completely blocked off public access to the offices of ministers in the North and South blocks. Though there were displeasures and questions regarding the sudden change in security arrangements, Times Now claims that it is because of the recent information that the LeT has reconnoitred the PM’s travel route from his official residence to PMO.

The report also claims that additional security cordons and outposts can now be seen on the route and also around the PM’s residence and office.

In the past too, there have been numerous instances of terrorist attack threat to the PM’s life. In December 2015, a major plot to attack the PM by LeT was foiled when the security agencies arrested the terrorists who had infiltrated into the Indian border through the LoC. In July this year too, there was a high alert issued to intelligence agencies over a possible LeT plot to target the PM and the parliament.

After the Maharashtra police began investigating the Bhima-Koregaon violence, several alleged Urban Maoists were arrested. It was revealed from a letter found by the police that the alleged Urban Maoists had also discussed of a plot to assassinate the PM in a ‘Rajiv Gandhi type’ incident.
