A special MCOCA court in Mumbai, on Friday, remanded till March 13 the IM co-founder Yasin Bhatkal and his aide Asadullah Akhtar in judicial custody (JC) in connection with the July 13, 2011 Mumbai triple blasts case.
On Friday, NIA filed 277—page charge sheet against Bhatkal and three others in Supreme Court. Charge sheet has elaborate details that how they were planning to Fidayeen attacks on politicians and officials of Mumbai.

Success in their new stratergy will help to boost the morale of their cadre which seems to have been demoralized due to arrest of many top rung leaders of the organization. The group’s handlers across the border are also monitoring their actions keenly.
It is clear from the new modus operandi of the IM, that it is a terror organisation which intends to target eminent personalities to spread terror and grab global headlines.
