JMB plan to form new module worries police
Kolkata: Following the arrests of Jamaat ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) members in the past few weeks, state police administration are worried as a new JMB module has come to the light.
According to sources, JMB members were active in the South Bengal and thus efforts to find them were made keeping the locations in mind.
But following four arrests, the police found that to avoid police action, JMB had planned to open a new module in North Bengal.
After the arrest of JMB terrorist Ejaz Ahmed alias Ezazul past month, who is the head of the organisation in India, police got names of three more JMB members who were supposed to meet him.
Later, in due course Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata Police arrested the three JMB members and found that a new module has already been set up in North Dinajpur. Two of the JMB members arrested from Malda, hail from Itahar in North Dinajpur.
During police raid at the residences of two JMB members, identified as Abdul Bari and Nijamuddin Khan, LED bulbs, detonators along with several other objects which are essential to prepare Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and time bombs were found.
However, police administration is worried about the new module of JMB located in North Dinajpur due to its location. As North Dinajpur shares its border with Bihar in the West and Bangladesh in the East, it is quite easy to flee from Bengal to hide. Also a portion of Malda borders with North Dinajpur, which also shares border with Bangladesh.
Due to the location it is easy to bring more JMB members from Bangladesh to Bengal and also to hide in Bihar.
Sources informed following the recent JMB member's arrest, police administration in North Bengal have been asked to step up their vigilance. However, the police are also searching if any other JMB module is active in the state. Also, these people have their connection in South India where they usually takes shelter.
The police are also nurturing this aspect and trying to find out if there is any active JMB member.
