The Karnataka government on Tuesday announced an Anti-Terrorist Squad for the state capital after Bangaloreans Kafeel Ahmed, Sabeel Ahmed and Mohammed Haneef were arrested for the failed terror plots in Britain. It will be on the lines of the one in Mumbai. Home Minister M.P. Prakash told the assembly the ATS would have men below 27 years, trained for intelligence operations and terrorist assaults.

Meanwhile, the Bangalore police have approached the Union Home Ministry for help to procure from UK enforcement authorities contents, data and video images from Kafeel Ahmed’s laptop. A senior Bangalore IPS officer said these were “desperately awaited” and they expected to learn about “details of sleeper cells and a list of Kafeel’s associates”.

But police are yet to crack the security codes Kafeel installed on his 56 GB hard disk recovered from his Bangalore residence a few days ago. The officer said the disk, with “5,000 pages of text, hundreds of files”, might be “cracked” by Wednesday. But scientists of the Centre for Cyber Forensics, a wing of the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing in Thiruvananthapuram, said they had deciphered information stored in the disk.
