A new kind of terrorism?

The Guardian reports:
Transport police are hunting for an "exceptionally antisocial" man who has been defecating on trains across the country, causing tens of thousands of pounds-worth of damage.

The vandal, who strikes by smearing excrement inside the carriages, appears to wait until he is alone before committing the offence but investigators can discern no other pattern to his behaviour. Police say the man has soiled at least 30 trains since August, mainly in the south-east.
I hope this doesn't give any ideas to terrorists anywhere. Else, we'll have terrorists crapping in public places everywhere, and when the intelligence agencies of the US and UK start investigating, they'll drive through Mumbai's roads early in the morning and discover exactly where the training camps are.
