New Delhi: NDTV confirmed the news that Delhi Police busted a clandestine plot of the terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) to carry out attacks in various areas of the capital. It was revealed that the outfit was also planning to attack the VVIPs.

Delhi Police filed a complaint on December 1, noting that there was a high chance of a ‘fidayeen strike’ in Delhi. A report on the issue was already filed in an anti-terror court.


There were allegations that these Lashkar operatives used code name like Numan, Khursheed and Zaidi to baffle the security and hoodwink the Indian intelligence agencies.

Reports say, the militants mostly trespass through the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK)

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police was carrying search operations to nab two suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba militants who had allegedly hatched a plot to carry out suicide targeting VVIPs.

Following the registry of a First Information Report (FIR), the Special Cell of Delhi Police received an intelligence report about two suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operatives. They were identified as Dujana and Ukasha, who allegedly infiltrated in Jammu & Kashmir through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

The recent nabbing of undercover operatives by Indian security forces, the busting of the Lashkar-e-Taiba plots indicates the obviousness of the Pakistan government’s decision to hold unconditional dialogue with India to resolve outstanding issues.

Earlier, the Delhi Police had revealed they had substantial information that the Pakistan High Commission had links with the ISI operatives who were arrested in connection with the Jammu and Kashmir spy ring. A lot of documents related to India’s national security were seized from their possession.

However, their arrest was a massive success for the Indian intelligence agencies. The busting of the huge espionage racket also helped the Indian agencies to know about the modus operandi of the Pakistani agents.

The Crime Branch of Delhi Police had busted the espionage racket backed by Pakistan’s ISI and detained a suspected handler of this organization and a serving BSF jawan.

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
