Media reports that there was a plan by terrorists to bomb the house of the Vice President is completely false with no iota of truth whatsoever.
An unendorsed press briefing note circulated today by some officials of the National Planning Commission contains a flat-out wrong claim on the very last line of the last paragraph.
That paragraph should read “The Vice President also disclosed that security reports has it that scavengers are now being prepared by insurgents to dump refuse laden with bombs in the houses of VIPs in the Northeast.”
The last line erroneously says “in the house of the Vice President.”
During the NEC meeting earlier today, the Vice President had mentioned intelligence reports which suggested that the terrorists have recruited people such as “BABA BOOLA” who are known to usually go about picking things from the dust bins. The plan is to use the “BABA BOOLA” people to plant bombs in houses of VIPs, offices and government installations in the Northeast.
Please take note of the correction, and ignore such media reports claiming plans to bomb the VP’s house. Those reports are unfounded and utterly baseless.
