'India could face super-terrorism'

August 29, 2008
Terror groups backed by Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence could use chemical, biological, nuclear or radiological weapons against India, initiating a form of 'super terrorism', warns a Union Home Ministry report.

With ISI spreading its tentacles in the country from Jammu and Kashmir to down south, the report spoke of active terror modules mushrooming in Bihar, Assam and West Bengal, where the sleeper cells have been assigned with specific targets.
