‘IM wanted to avenge killings in Myanmar’

Terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM) was planning to carry out a fidayeen attack at the Bodhgaya temple to "avenge" the recent killing of Muslims allegedly by Buddhists in Myanmar, according to sources in the intelligence.

The plan to attack the temple was revealed by the Delhi Police on Thursday when it announced the arrest of three IM operatives.

Sources told The Indian Express that top IM operative Riyaz Bhatkal had been talking to Asad Khan, Imran Khan and Sayyed Feroze, who have been arrested by the Delhi Police, about carrying out attacks at different places, including one at Bodhgaya.
