Assam: 4 Arrested for Ties to Bangladeshi Terrorist Groups; CM applauds Police dept.

Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, praised the Assam Police’s dedication to putting an end to jihadist activities in the state after 4 persons were detained there for links to terrorist groups in Bangladesh. According to the sources, the operation was carried out on Monday, and the suspects in Assam’s Nalbari and Tamulpur districts, who were allegedly linked to the terrorist organizations Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT), based in Bangladesh, were apprehended.

In a recent tweet CM Sarma said, “We’re determined to root out jihadi elements from Assam. @TamulpurPolice has done a commendable job in nabbing 2 persons — Sadeq Ali & Jakibul Ali — who lured youth to join B’desh-based terror outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team affiliated to al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).”

“Sadeq Ali’s arrest represents a big victory since during the previous two years, he radicalised young people, including Jakibul Ali. He was connected to both JMB and Neo-JMB. Habel Ali and Abu Raihan were also detained in a related case by the Ghograpar Police (Nalbari Dist),” Sarma further stated.

According to Pabindra Kumar Nath, the Nalbari district superintendent of police, who spoke to ANI, two people, identified as Md. Habel Ali and Abu Raihan, were detained by the Nalbari district police, while Tamulpur district police also detained two more people, Sadeq Ali and Jakibul Ali, who were connected to AQIS.
“Two individuals identified as Md Habel Ali (26 years old) and Abu Raihan (26 years old) have been detained by Nalbari district police in connection with Ghograpar police station Case number 163/22, U/S- 120(B)/ 121/121(A)/122 IPC, R/W-Sec -10/13 UA(P) Act,” says Pabindra Kumar Nath to ANI.
