Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal has reportedly admitted during the police interrogation that he was the one who orchestrated the Hyderabad blasts in February this year, after receiving clear instructions from Pakistani handler. Twin blasts at Dilsukhnagar on February 21st claimed the lives of 17 people and seriously injured over 100.
Yashin (30) told he had supplied explosive materials to a person for planting them at various locations in Dilsukhnagar near Cyberabad. He explained that the motive behind the blasts is to make the foreign companies refrain from expanding their business operations in the city.
Regarding the German Bakery blast in Pune on February 13th (2010) that killed 17 people, Yashin said it was he who planted the bomb in the shop after coming to know about the heavy rush of visitors. The explosive material was placed near a gas cylinder to cause maximum damage and the deceased include four foreigners as well.
Cops consider Yashin as the face of modern-day terrorism. He has played a significant role in around 40 blasts and there is a reward of Rs 35 lakh on his head. He was arrested from India-Nepal border on August 28th, 2013.
