>Indian TV reports Huji plan to kill Hasina

>INDIAN intelligence agencies have warned Bangladesh that former prime minister Sheikh Hasina faces an assassination threat from a banned militant group. (Read full report)
Indian intelligence agencies have warned the country that a six-member suicide squad of the banned Harkat-ul-Jehad-al-Islami (HUJI) has been trained to assassinate Hasina, leader of Awami League, one of the main political parties of the country.
Sources in the Indian intelligence agencies and inside Bangladesh have told CNN-IBN that the HUJI team was trained for the last two months by an officer of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence who operates under the name Ehetesham.
The special training camp was held at Kaligunj in Satkhira and the six men were personally briefed by HUJI chief Imtiaz Quddus at the end of the training.
Sources say that the assassination plot has been planned by renegade officers of Bangladesh’s all-powerful military intelligence, the Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI).
Some of these officers were recently transferred away from the DGFI by Bangladesh army chief General Moeenuddin Ahmed, who has been trying to hold a peaceful election.
Hasina recently returned to Bangladesh after a forced exile. She is widely expected to win the forthcoming elections in the country.
Hasina has survived several assassination attempts in the past. In August 2004, she escaped an assassination bid when a string of explosions rocked an opposition rally addressed by her in Dhaka
