A Glance at how the previous year ended........
Wednesday, December 28, 2005 (Bangalore):
A retired IIT, Delhi professor has been shot dead and four others injured in a shootout at the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) in Bangalore.
According to the police, four to five persons came in a white Ambassador car inside the campus of the Institute and opened fire from automatic weapons outside the J N Tata auditorium. An AK-47 rifle, three magazines of an automatic weapon and a hand grenade were recovered from the scene of firing, police sources said.An international conference was on inside the auditorium when the shootout took place at around 7:20 pm (IST). Delegates were coming out for dinner at the end of the day's proceedings of the annual convention of Operational Research Society of India when the gunmen struck.According to sources, the attack could be the handiwork of a terrorist group though it's too early to say which group was responsible.The Institute is on the hit list of terror groups including Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba.Sources say Bangladesh-based terrorist groups will also have to be investigated for their involvement in the attack.
People were asked to leave sections of Forum Mall and Garuda Mall for some time in the afternoon. The police have thrown a tight security blanket at the CM's residence,CM's home office, Hotel Ashok, and the residences of all politicians. All IBM employees were asked to leave the building and checks were conducted at all other places.It said six jehadis had come to Bangalore, that the Grand Ashok Hotel and CM's residence should be evacuated, and on New Year's Eve, hundreds of people would die during the celebrations at the hotel. Security agencies are trying to ascertain where the fax, signed by Moinuddin, had come from. The Times of India, some other newspaper offices and the CM received fax copies of the letter. The letter says powerful bombs will go off at 10.30 pm and two human bombs - Sarla and Hanif - will blow themselves up at the CM's residence during the chaos at the hotel. "It is one of the most systematic executions ever," the letter added. Police commissioner Ajai Kumar Singh said: "We cannot ignore such messages but it is not common for terrorists to send faxes to newspaper offices informing about such attacks because it would give time for the police to react and reorganise themselves.
