UK bans IM
The UK has banned IM (Indian Mujahideen) quoting the undiscerning mass casualty attacks carried out by the LeT-linked terror group in India and the risk it posed to British nationals in the country. British MPs voted nem con to ban IM, placing it on the list of 47 organizations that have been banned from operating in the UK. The decision was taken after thoroughly reviewing all the available information and evidence about the India-based terror group. The IM is also banned in other countries, including the United States and New Zealand.
India had banned IM in June 2010 after it was suspected of involvement in the attack on a Pune bakery.
