Chennai: An ISI suspect from Sri Lanka, Sakir Hussain, 37, has confessed that he conspired with Pakistan high commission officials in Sri Lanka to unleash terror in India.
Sakir Hussain, who was arrested in Chennai in May this year and has been lodged in prison, made the confession when he was produced before the special court for bomb blast cases in Poonamallee on Thursday.
When the case came up before special judge Moni, Sakir admitted that he conspired with Pakistan high commission officials in Sri Lanka - Amir Shah Siddique and Boss alias Shah - and a Malaysian resident, Hussein, with an intention to cause terror in India and pose a threat to sovereignty and integrity by circulating high-quality, fake Indian currencies. Their objective was to destabilise the Indian economy and administration.
He said he met the Pakistani officials many times during the past one year and sent photographs and maps of the US consulate in Chennai and that of Israel in Bengaluru. A case has been registered against him under sections 120 B and 489 of IPC and 16 and 18 of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
Sakir was produced before the court under tight security. Special public prosecutor C.S.S. Pillai posed questions to him.
