According to a report published on 7 December 2008, an unspecified threat sent from Pakistan via e-mail warned of a possible Mumbai style attack against Bengaluru. The report stated that the threat window will be open on 7 and 8 December. Police and National Security Guard commandos bolstered security at key installations, particularly Bengaluru International Airport (VOBL/BLR), the City Railway Station and main bus terminal.
According to a report published on 8 December 2008, Pakistani forces have raided a Lashkar-e-Taiba camp in Musaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani-administered Kashmir. The raid reportedly netted Lashkar’s operational chief and the man sources indicate was the person responsible for ordering the Mumbai attacks. Witneses state that a large-scale raid was launched against the position with Pakistani army helicopters and army personnel raiding the camp. While government and militant sources stated that the Lashkar chief was captured, the Pakistani government has not released any official statement about the operation.
