Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta’s dynamic duo has always thrown surprises at the audience in the form of Shahid, Newton, and Omerta! The filmmaker and actor are a pair who match in the cinematic sense. They bring ideas and stories to the celluloid in the most explosive form (while in the case of Omerta ‘explosive’ stands real). The story of the terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh is unlike any other. Why you may ask? Because Omar Saeed comes from an educated background and had absolutely zero exposure to terror activities until he was 16! Perhaps the terrorism seeps down within the veins right from the birth. And this is true in the case of these Top 10 Wanted Terrorists Of India.

Catch the trailer of Omerta, a film based on real events.

Dawood Ibrahim: The most dreaded terrorist of India, was born in Mumbai, India, and was the son of a police constable. Dawood is the financier and links to many jihadi organizations. He is the key suspect behind the 1993 Mumbai blasts. He is allegedly the mastermind behind 26/11 Mumbai blasts as well. Dawood is said to be in Dubai and Karachi as his hideout spots. He is also involved in other illegal trafficking businesses. He is said to manage the operations in Mumbai even though he does not stay in the city.

Sajid Mir: The man who came to India as a fan of cricket and did a thorough recce and survey for the attacks of 26/11. One of the assets of ISI and the member of the Pakistani parliament at some point, Sajid Mir is the face and the brain behind 26/11 attacks. The Mumbai attacks were the worst smack and the shocking loss of lives has led the Indian government to stick to these names of the masterminds being in the most-wanted list.

Hafeez Muhammad Saeed: The biggest suspect and the main mastermind behind the 26/11 attacks, Hafeez Muhammad Saeed is the head of the Lashkar-E-Tayaba, the organisation that trains young boys and brainwashes them to spread jihad.
