BANGALORE: Doctors, engineers and techies. The face of terror has changed in Karnataka. In less than two years, seven highly-educated youths (with professional degrees or registered for professional courses) have been held in the drive against terror.
The number is set to increase as the state police, probing the links sets out on a manhunt for more educated youths who are absconding.
Bangalore has contributed a fair number of educated professionals to the terror network and the profile of the arrested youths best explain the changing trend in terrorism. The finesse of their planning and execution, which ranges from train bombings to terror attacks on foreign soil, is shocking.
