Burdwan case: ED unearths suspect bank accounts linked to terror

“We have got a few account numbers of some unidentified persons while probing the money trail in the Burdwan blast case,” an official source told a news agency.

The source said the agency had obtained the account numbers of the persons whose identities were
yet to be ascertained.

The agency would probe possible links of these accounts to find whether money was used for terror funding.

Early November, the ED had registered a case of money laundering against Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) and several of its recruits in connection with the blast.

The case was registered by the agency based on the FIR filed by the National Investigation Agency and the information provided by it. The NIA is probing the terror angle of the blast which took place in October 2.

The source said that accounts of the accused persons named in the FIR were also being probed to ascertain the money trail.

Asked whether the agency had got any clue so far on money raised by Ponzi firms being used for terror funding, the source said no evidence was there as of now.

Soon after the NIA took charge of the probe, a team from the terror funding cell of the agency met ED officials to share information.

Meanwhile, Lathi-wielding supporters of BJP and Trinamool Congress clashed at Poharpur in Burdwan district on Thursday as a big force nnd RAF had to be deployed in the locality.

A senior police officer said there was a clash between the two sides following an argument but a big contingent of police and RAF brought the situation under control at Local TMC leaders alleged BJP supporters stopped a Trinamool rally in Poharpur leading to the clash in which one of their supporters
was injured.

BJP sources, however, countered the charge and said TMC men severely beat up one of their activists in the presence of police and damaged BJP party office in the area.
