A bid to create communal tension foiled
HYDERABAD: The city police have bust a plan by some elements to allegedly kill a VHP or BJP leader during the Ganesha idol immersion ceremony scheduled for September 6 with the arrest of Mohammed Shakil (24) late on Sunday night.

According to police sources, Shakil and his associates were plotting to carry out the killing on Sept 6 and unleash communal violence.

However, counter intelligence agents trailed his movements and foiled the evil design.

Shakil reportedly told his interrogators of the plan to kill a leader in the Saidabad area of the city and create communal tension.

It was learnt the police seized some CDs from Shakil containing inflammatory speeches and footage of Babri Masjid destruction and the Gujarat massacre.

Police were now searching for two associates of Shakil who managed to escape. Meanwhile, security has been tightened in the capital for the immersion ceremony following the arrest.
