Terrorists target offshore call centres
Offshoring gets dangerous...
A terrorist cell busted by Indian police was planning attacks on leading software firms in Bangalore.
Three men were shot dead and two arrested in southwest Delhi on Saturday. Indian police claim the men were members of Lashkar-e-Toiba - a Wahabi militant group fighting for an independent Kashmir.
Police found documents suggesting the group visited Bangalore in November last year and were finalising arrangements to rent a house there. The group had a detailed map of the offices of one firm, according to the Star of Mysore.
Apart from maps of call centres police also recovered 100 kilos of dynamite, 10.5 kilos of RDX explosive, 450 detonators, three AK-56 rifles and a satellite phone.
