In October 2010, Mohammad Abdullah alias Abdullah Inqualabi held a meeting around 10 fellow terror operatives in Shopian of Jammu & Kashmir on the instructions of his handlers sitting in Pakistan.

The coming together of all these terror operatives was an indication that Pakistan-based outfits are pooling in their resources.

It was decided in the meeting that Inqualabi will go to Delhi to set a base there and start preparing for a spectacular strike. But before he could make headway in his plan he was arrested by the special cell of Delhi in an Intelligence Bureau (IB) backed operation.

Inqualabi's arrest and subsequent interrogation has provided Indian security establishment another evidence to prove that the ISI-backed terror facilities in Pakistan are still in operation and despite claims made before international community after 26/11, India's neighbour is yet dismantle terror infrastructure erected in the last 20 years.

When the home secretaries of India and Pakistan sit on Monday, the Indian side plans to do some plain-speaking in this regard.

Inqualabi, a resident of village Toubat in Muzaffarabad area of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), joined jehad at the tender age of 14, motivated by Maulvi Mohammad Ashraf. He was sent to India in 2000 with six other operatives.

After his surrender he was instrumental in elimination of seven HM operatives in the Rajouri and Poonch area in 2009.

In fact he complained to his interrogators that he didn't get any reward for the information he provided to the security forces.

He said, "I was exploited in the name of my safe surrender."

He provided information to the Indian security forces about three more HM operatives that led to their neutralisation in October, 2010.

And interestingly, all this while he was in touch with his handlers in Pakistan.

According to sources, he was in touch with a Lashkar operative, known by his code name 'Mohammadi', in Pakistan to discuss terror strike on Delhi.

He was in touch with his family in Muzaffarabad also.
