.Bangalore: The terror threats on India have not seen its end and predictions are lurking around about possibilities of more attacks similar to the Mumbai carnage. The attacks are presumed to be from Pakistan-based terrorist groups, who are increasingly organizing terror campaigns in South Asia.
"India will continue to face a serious jihadist threat from Pakistan-based terrorist groups, and neither Indian nor U.S. policy is likely to reduce that threat in the near future," said Angel Rabasa, lead author of the study and a senior Political Scientist with RAND, a non-profit think tank based in Santa Monica, California.
According to RAND, the other extremist groups in Pakistan will find inspiration in the Mumbai attacks, and there can be more attacks from groups with high body counts and symbolic targets. The Mumbai attacks will also imply a surge in the terrorist groups who will strategize their attacks. The study also identifies operational and tactical features of the attack, evaluates the response of Indian security forces, and analyzes the implications for India, Pakistan and the United States.
