Pakistan’s ISI hand is suspected behind two major incidents — the derailment of the Indore-Patna Express train near Kanpur that took 140 lives and the failed attempt last year to blow up goods and passenger trains near Ghorasahan station in Bihar, said police on Tuesday.
According to the east Champaran superintendent of police Jitendra Rana, Moti Paswan, one of three convicts detained in the district recently, confessed during cross-examination that the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) had premeditated the derailment of Indore-Patna Express in November last year.
Police have also found proof relating the three detained offenders, Paswan, Umashankar Prasad and Mukesh Yadav to ISI, said Rana.
While the Intelligence Bureau squad has already questioned them, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) have been told about their detention.
“Paswan said he was involved in the train derailment, along with some others including Zubair and Ziaul, who have been arrested in Delhi. Paswan has already identified the two persons nabbed in Delhi,” Rana said as per a report in Business Standard.
“We have got information from Nepal police that the ISI had hired Brajkishore Giri, one of three criminals arrested there to execute terror activities in India,” he added.
Sadly, the ISI has been using neighboring country Nepal as its base to execute terror activities through Bihar, said Rana.
