The Southern Scourge

Intelligence agencies believe terrorist outfits are spreading their tentacles in South India:
  • Security and intelligence focused on tackling terror in J&K and North East. No such security vigil in the south.
  • It is easier to set up sleeper cells in southern cities
  • There is a sizeable educated Muslim population who are now seen as likely candidates for indoctrination
  • A large number of Muslims from the south working in the Gulf are potential recruits
  • Arms and explosives can easily be landed on the southern sea coast
  • India's new economic muscle, the IT sector, is concentrated in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. Software parks and scientific establishments could be potential targets.
