In late December, a fatal shooting at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore prompted officials at universities and other vulnerable facilities to rethink security measures. According to a 12/29/05 report posted on ITworld.com,
One person was killed and four injured in the gunfire on the campus of IISc, one of India’s most prestigious educational institutes. They were part of a large group of scientists and professors that were coming out of a conference held in the auditorium of the IISc, when the gunman attacked.
Several months earlier, police in India warned that the country’s software and services outsourcing industry and other high technology installations are likely new targets for a terrorist group operating in the country.
