In 1990, Azam Ghauri was part of People's War Group. He was seriously injured during an attack that he carried out in Warangal. To escape arrest he fled Andhra Pradesh and went to Pakistan and joined Lashkar-e-Toiba. He received training at the hands of Taliban in Afghanistan.
In 1993 he was part of the criminal group that carried out the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Bombay which caused over 250 fatalities and 700 injuries. He fled again to Pakistan to escape prosecution and received further weapons training.
Ghauri infiltrated back into India and came to Hyderabad and started recruiting Muslim youths for disruptive activities in India and founded Indian Muslim Mohammadi Mujahideen outfit with the stated objective "to eradicate western culture from India".
Police records show Ghauri was involved in as many as 60 crimes such as extortion, killings and theft.
