Noordin M. Top, the notorious terrorist group leader, is believed to have led the bomb attacks on two luxury hotels in Indonesian capital Jakarta on July 17, Police Chief Bambang Hendarso Danuri said here on Thursday.

"The planning was set in April this year in a meeting at a hotel located in Kuningan regency of West Java. Noordin himself led the bombing operation," Bambang stated in his reply conveyed to the legislator in the parliament.

According to the Indonesian police chief, the meeting was attended by Noordin, Syaifuddin Zuhri, Mohammad Syahrir, Ibrohim, Ario Sudarso and Amir Abdillah.

Ibrohim was shot dead by the police's anti terror squad during a raid in Temanggung Central Java early last month.

The house had been used as a hideout place by Ibrohim during his run after taking part in the bombings that killed nine people and wounded 53 others.

Syaifudin Zuhri, Mohammad Syahrir, Ario Sudarso and Noordin M Top were still at large at the moment.

The suicide bombers, Dani Permana and Nana Maulana, checked in JW Marriott hotel and Ritz Carlton on July 15 and 17.

According to Bambang, the terrorist accomplices had surveyed the two hotels two months before the bombings, according to a report of the detik.com.

Then the terrorist gang accomplices that perpetrated the bombings were hiding in Bekasi, West Java and Central Java, setting a plan to kill President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Aug. 17.

Their plan were foiled early August after the police raided a house in Jatiasih, Bekasi, which was used by the terrorist gang as a post to assemble the car bomb targeted the president.

Police killed two accomplices when they were about to throw portable bombs to the police during the raid.
