    Has The Indian Air Force Busted A Terror Plot? Man Carrying Sensitive Pictures Of Air Force Station Arrested

    Swarajya Staff - 07 Feb, 2017, 2:14 pm

    Security officers of the Indian Air Force have arrested a man, who was reportedly planing an attack on the Yelahanka Air Force Station in Bengaluru, where India’s premier air show Aero India 2017 is set to take off on 14 February. The 24-year-old plotter, identified as Mamnun, was working at the air force station as a welder and belongs to the Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh.

    Preliminary investigation has revealed that Mamnun had photographs of the restricted areas and sensitive information on his phone and had made several calls to Saudi Arabia in the last few days. He was carrying nine different sim cards.

    Bengaluru police commissioner Praveen Sood has said that an FIR has been registered against the accused for allegedly carrying sensitive pictures of the air base, but has denied linking the episode to a terror plot. Contrary to this, the Indian Air Force has said that its officers arrested the accused while he was in the restricted area, talking to someone in Saudi Arabia, and has pointed towards a possible terror plot.

    They've gone to Nigeria and Indonesia, a wasted opportunity. Perhaps the best possible head of state helicopter was ordered, delivered but never inducted by India (despite India paying for it!).


    What sense India has.....

    Buzz in the corridors of power suggests

    • New DM AJ has bought in the enhanced vision of quick force replenishment needs and tied it up with India expanding its dominion of strategic tie ups and forging closer relationships
    • DM AJ with support of few core folks are pro Second Hand Stuff
    • The core group have approached quite a few countries for several things ranging from 2nd hand planes, guns to subs as well
    • They say its hitting two birds with one stone, the hardware comes cheap and the country you buy this old hardware from become your friends
    • The only issue is price which is a factor.

    Howitzers, mortar carriers and heavy mortars from Israeli reserves coming. For sure, if second hand howitzers and guns are being considered.

    As for aircraft, 2nd hand fighter jets ??? Means maybe Qatar and French Mirages ??

    What do the acquisitions of used Mirages and other fighters mean in regards to the Rafale acquisition? Is it possible we won't end up buying the extended numbers that we had discussed earlier? Or will we still buy them, just the delay will be so great that we are buying used aircraft as a temporary stopgap?
