Hyderabad not a terror hub, says new police chief

Hyderabad is not terrorist hub: Chidambaram: Hyderabad is not a terrorist base, Home Minister P. Chidambaram clarified Wednesday after inaugurating a regional hub of the National Security Guard (NSG) here........Read Full

Hyderabad: It was improper to term Hyderabad as a terror hub, the city's new police commissioner Abdul Khayyum Khan said Thursday.


"Terrorism is not confined to Hyderabad alone. Every city has this problem. It is not correct to say that whatever happens in other parts of the country is planned here or terrorism has its roots here," Khan told reporters after taking charge.


Khan, the second Muslim to become the city's police chief in nearly three decades, said very few "elements" in Hyderabad were involved in terror activity.


"We have identified them and are keeping a watch on their activity.

In the past, some modules and sleeper cells were busted and a continuous vigil on such activities will be a priority for the police," Khan, who succeeded B. Prasada Rao, said.


Khan, earlier an additional director general of police, is a 1981 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer.


Khan, who is from the Rayalaseema region, said police would perform its duties professionally while handling "ongoing movements". He was referring to the campaign for and against a Telangana state.


"For the last two to three months, the intensity of different movements has affected civic life in the city but I am confident that the city will pass through this phase. The police have the responsibility to bring normalcy as quickly as possible."


Khan, who served in the city in different positions for the last six years, said he was taking over as the police chief of the historic city with a sense of humility and pride.
