Mumbai: Mumbai police has announced cash rewards for any kind of information on the person or persons involved in leaking the "terror alert" letters  sent to all police stations stating to monitor the activities of the Girls Islamic Organization (GIO) - girls' wing of Jamaat-e-Islami in India, a media report said Thursday.

 

According to a report published in the local Urdu daily Urdu Times, the Mumbai police is finding it tough to identify the culprit who leaked the alert notification to the press.

 

The letter circulated to all police station was supposed to be confidential. It, however, was leaked to the press causing huge embarrassment to the Mumbai police. The Mumbai police later apologized to the GIO and its parent organisation Jamaate Islami Hind.

 

The Urdu Times quoting a high level official said that the Mumbai police while announcing the cash reward for any information on the culprit also said that tough action would be taken whoever is found guilty in the matter.

 

The report also said that a special team of Mumbai police is secretly investigating the call records and e-mails of suspected staff.

 

The report said that the circular had many things in it. However, only two point were leaked to the press.

 

The content of the letter leaked to the press stated that the GIO is trying to recruit young women and girls.

 

It also mentioned names of two women, Swaleha Baji and Smaiyya. While the former has been referred as the Maharashtra chief of GIO, Smaiyya is said to be recruiting people, according to a report published in the Times of India and some other newspapers.

"People are now attracted towards science. These women are trying to ask girls to wear a burqa and study Islam. We have asked police stations to monitors their activities," The Times of India quoted Sanjay Shintre, who heads the special branch's intelligence wing, as saying.

 

However, the Jamat office, vehemently denied the allegations and said they were planning to sue the Mumbai police for making defamatory statements against them.

 

“We are not a violent organisation. Our job is to connect with Muslims across the country and do good work. We work for social reforms and fight for women’s rights too", Sunday Mid-Day quoted Tauffiq Aslam Khan, president of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, as saying.

 

"We do believe in Jihad, but in non-violent, spiritual Jihad. We are considering legal action against the Mumbai police,” he added.
