Ghulam Yazdani has been killed but at least another 30 youth from Nalgonda district are suspected to have been trained by terrorist groups.

With more evidence of the activities of Pakistan's ISI coming to light from the district in the last two years, the police in Nalgonda are trying to verify the movements of some youth.

This movement checking is especially being done in Nalgonda town, Chityal, Narketpally, Gurrampode, Koppole, Munugode, Huzurnagar, Bhongir and Devarakonda.

After intelligence alerts in the last few months about increasing ISI activities in Nalgonda, the district police have started collecting information about suspected youth. Especially under the scanner are persons who have come into wealth suddenly.

"We have opened suspect sheets on about 30 youth. Profiles of identified persons, who have links with banned terrorists outfits like LeT and Simi, have been prepared and we are keeping surveillance if they are on bail or acquitted,'' Nalgonda superintendent of police Mahesh Bhagwat told TOI.

"We are in touch with community elders who have been asking parents to watch the movements of their wards,'' the SP said.

Apart from suspected trained youth, the Nalgonda district police have identified seven ISI activists, three Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), nine Deendar Anjuman and two activists of Student Islamic Movement of India (Simi) who have been involved in terrorist activities.

The police are on the hunt for two top activists from Nalgonda district. One Shaik Ameer Ali of Kodad and one Syed Salauddin Ahmed, who is believed to be a former all India president of Simi.

The youth are being recruited under the guise of computer training and other vocational training within the country and outside.

"Unfortunately, even some of the parents do not know what their sons are doing,'' a police officer said. The Chityal police of Nalgonda district arrested one Farooq in 2004.

He was a follower of Yazdani, who was killed in an encounter near Delhi on Wednesday. Yazdani tried to push him into LeT.

Yazdani's brother Rabbani had been arrested by Hyderabad city police in a sedition case last year.

The tentacles of the ISI came to light twelve years ago when two terrorists were killed in an encounter. Rafi and Fasiuddin, both belonging to Nalgonda district, died in an encounter in 1994.

Another key ISI activist Asgar Ali, who was the prime accused in the Gujarat minister Haren Pandya murder case, was also trained in Pakistan.

He made recruitments into the banned outfit from Nalgonda and is presently in a Gujarat jail.
