About the book

It is 1996. A fifteen-year-old Lashkar-e-Taiba fidayeen crosses over to India from Pakistan. When officer Shekhar Singh of the Counter Terrorism Cell captures and interrogates him, he makes a startling revelation. The terror group has begun sending men to settle down in India in the guise of regular civilians. On the sly, they are to serve as outposts for its missions and destroy the country from within.

Stunned but not shaken, Shekhar and his bosses decide to take the fight to the enemy camp. Five Indian intelligence agents are planted in the LeT to take on its might and sabotage its operations. And thus is born Operation Trojan Horse, a first-of-its-kind Indian counter-terror mission that will go on for years.

Operation Trojan Horse is a thriller inspired by real events – including the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack and several other LeT operations – and the true stories of the courageous men who risked their lives in the enemy country for their motherland.
