Dawood-ISI trying to involve Maoists in terror?
Bangalore:  The Bangalore Police says it has unearthed a terror plot involving Pakistan's ISI to commit terrorist acts in India with the help of Dawood Ibrahim. Two men have been arrested, allegedly while they were trying to establish contact with leaders of the Maoist movement in the country. The plan was to invite Maoist leaders to Dubai for a meeting.

 "The Bangalore Police received credible inputs to the effect that the ISI had engaged Dawood Ibrahim and through his accomplice, Chotta Shakeel, to engage Maoists, that is Naxalite leaders in India and instigate them to commit terrorist acts," said Shankar Bidari, the city's Police Commissioner.

Altaf from Dakshina Kannada district and Vinay Kumar from the Hassan district  were allegedly authorized to  pay the Maoists to commit terrorist acts in India. The police claims that money had been transferred to Hyderabad for this purpose - and that 4 lakhs had already been paid to the Maoists. The police also believes that  visas and tickets to Dubai from Hyderabad had also been arranged for Maoist leaders  from Andhra Pradesh.

Both the arrested men are accused in a kidnapping case in Kerala; Altaf is allegedly involved in extortion.
