    KOLKATA: The NIA, which is investigating the Bardhman blasts, on Wednesday roped in the NSG as it found leads of more illegal madrasas meant for training jihadis, explosives manufacturing units and links with several international Islamist terror outfits.

    The NIA team headed by S K Singh submitted a brief primary interim report to the Ministry of Home Affairs(MHA) detailing the conspiracy, stating that it would need more time to unearth the huge conspiracy to carry out subversive activities hatched by the terrorists who were aided not only by groups in Bangladesh but also those based in other countries.

    In his seven-page report, Singh mentioned that the conspiracy had been hatched a long time ago and since October, 2011, these terrorists, several of whom were members of the Jamaat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh, had infiltrated and started operations in West Bengal with the aid of some politicians.

    They had built links with other terror groups in India and started recruiting youths including women, set up several madrasas in West Bengal to train them in “fidayeen” attacks while indoctrinating them in jihadi philosophy.

    The three men traced by the NIA in Tamil Nadu through mobile call records of Raziya Bibi, widow of Shakil Ahmed, the JuMB terrorist who died in the blast on October 2, are in fact student leaders of the Islamic Chhatra Shbir of Bangladesh, who had been sent there to recruit youths from South India.

    Jihadi literature recovered from the house, where the blast took place, was printed in Urdu, Arabic, Bengali and Tamil. The NIA team on Wednesday found another madrasa at Tamilpukur in Bardhaman which was being built on a huge plot of land financed by Mohammad Yusuf and Sobhan Sheikh,a carpenter . They had purchased the agricultural land at a high premium from local farmers but started construction without the Panchayat’s permission. The sleuths are trying to trace the funds which were provided to these terrorists and found links with the JuMB as well as some Wahabi trusts and NGOs in the Gulf countries. Another NIA team again visited Kirnahar in Birbhum district, and searched the house of Abdul Qader Gazi, whose sister was married to Qauser, one of the masterminds behind the terror module, and questioned his mother, as the two men are suspected to have fled to Bangladesh.

    I remember, during the investigation of the malegaon blasts the investigating agencies (of the UPA, for the UPA and by the UPA) had leaked the so called inflammatory literature from Lt.Col. Purohit's laptop along with some 'incriminating documents'. This was revealed by a Page 5 article in TOI written, conveniently, by syyed wahajatuddin (i'm not so sure about the first name) in a tune espousing the misery of muslims in the land.

    One of the document talked of how the Lt.Col's outfit planned to use foreign help to create an armed Hindu resistance in India and declare a part, if not full, of the country as a Hindu kingdom :sarcastic:

    My question even then, as is now, was that why is not this jihadi literature openly shown in newspapers !!! While it was okay to 'reveal' a preposterous document supposedly from Hindu outfits to the public, why not this vitriolic, hate-filled and evil jihadi documents..... especially when the country needs a mass education and awareness of the danger posed by these jihadis.

    Edit:
    Here is a link which states the same thing - like it is a walk in the part to carve a country within a country:

    the answers are simple

    vote bank politics

    A shrewd politician has many colors. Manipulation of voters for seizing power in democracy is an art. Politicians hunt Muslim Vote Bank for votes from various parties, often with conflicting interests. Thus, they need to appease various factions, sounding sweet enough to win the votes. A vote bank is a loyal bloc of voters from a single community, who consistently back a certain candidate or political party in democratic elections. Such behavior is the result of an expectation of real or imagined benefits from that candidate or the party, often at the cost of other communities. Vote bank policy is a divisive politics. It is detrimental to democracy because this brand of politics encourages voters to vote on the basis of narrow communal considerations, often against their better judgment.

    Situation in WB seems alarming, not just for them, but there has been some connections in many other states and also sabotage our neighbouring country. and even more worrying is that it seems to have the approval of the political leadership and the state machinary. I hope this stuff is cleaned up. Well we were luck that those bombs went off when they did, otherwise we might have never known about this until it was too late.

    This whole Bangla network issue ties up beautifully with india's push for anti-terrorism reforms at UN. Good timing. Now it is up to foreign office to take it up at international level.

    TMC should be declared a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION and the gang leaders Mamta,Brian,Tapas should be jailed immediately under Anti-National activities laws with no bail.

    Why the whole of Bengal is silent???

    Because of political goons, methinks. There should be an uprising. Well, there was, against the erstwhile LF govt., but it was hijacked by Mamata, with the help of Maoists.

    Bengal seems to be in a strange situation... they wanted to get rid of one goon(CPI) but voted for a bigger goon ie. TMC who are now proven TERRORISTS doing anti-national activities.

    BJP seems to be the option now but people of Bengal need to spearhead it.

    CPI was not into goon politics. It was also a small contributor to the LF government. The goons were mainly under CPI(M), and some were under Congress. These goons were bred by Jyoti Basu, and Buddahdeb Bhattacharya tried to disarm them, and Mamata took them under her tutelage, struck deals with the Maoists, played with the motions of the people (silliness on part of the people), and siezed power.

    CPM and TMC are same. No one is a bigger terrorist. CPM for your info still thinks that border restrictions should be lifted. Also your BJP/Modi is not doing the thing that will save people from terrorism ie educating Muslims and imposing strict borders. I do not think that Muslims are bad but the madrasas turn them to terrorists. If you have watched the ABP ananda show on this you will realize that instead of imparting education madrasas were teaching bomb making to young kids. Do you think that the kids are at fault?

    NSA to oversee terror probe in West Bengal, get Mamata govt on board

    NEW DELHI: Taking a serious view of the revelations of a deep terror network in West Bengal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will send national security adviser Ajit Doval to the state on Monday to personally oversee the ongoing investigations and persuade the state government to be part of the solution.

    Doval will be accompanied by IB chief Asif Ibrahim during his visit, signalling the importance the government is giving to these developments. Doval's first engagement will be a meeting with chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

    The NSA will carry a personal message from the PM asking for "full support" of the state government in carrying out the investigations on an al-Qaida affiliate taking root in the border state.

    Faced with some resistance from the Mamata government on investigations into the terror network in the wake of the Burdwan blasts, an alarmed Central government has asked Doval to brief the Trinamool dispensation at length and "sensitise" it to the dangers of what has been unravelling.

    Accompanied by top officials, Doval will even go to Burdwan to personally oversee the probe which has since been handed over to NIA. It's not yet clear whether he will visit Murshidabad where Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) leaders were apparently using a madrassa to train their cadres.

    The visit comes on the back of NIA chief Sharad Kumar's revelation that they had found some 58 terror modules operating in West Bengal. The investigators have zeroed in on some 180 Bangladeshi nationals operating these modules and working with JMB. This deadly al-Qaida affiliate has reportedly been planning attacks both in India and Bangladesh.

    Reports said the two masterminds identified as Anisur and Mufazzal Hussain are Bangladeshi citizens. Doval will also review the information gathered from the confessions of the captured women militants, who have revealed a huge network of IED manufacturers and an expanding terror network.

    The developments are particularly difficult for both the Central and state government. Battling waning popularity in the aftermath of the Saradha scam, Banerjee has been resisting Central involvement in the investigations. But home ministry overrode her objections to bring NIA into the probe. She cannot publicly oppose the investigations and risk further loss of popularity by appearing to side with the dark forces, a perception that might be her undoing in the next elections. But she believes the unravelling of the terror network could affect her political equations as well.

    The JMB in Bangladesh had been decimated by the Sheikh Hasina government in 2007, but it found a safe haven in West Bengal a few years later. The links between JMB, Jamaat-e-Islami and al-Qaida have not only created a new terror network here, but are also feeding off the antipathy between the Awami League and opposition BNP in Bangladesh (Jamaat is allied to BNP). Banerjee herself has been antagonistic to the Awami League government in Dhaka and diplomatic sources here said she had reached out to the Jamaat several years ago, which rang alarm bells in the security establishment. Security sources say they had sent 'cautionary' reports to Kolkata in the past few years, with little or no response from the state government.

    Burdwan bomb meant for attacks in Bangla: NIA

    Confirming the initial suspicion in the October 2 Burdwan blast, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Friday said the accused arrested in the case and their associates were members of terror group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bang-ladesh (JMB), who were preparing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) for transporting them to that country for possible terror attacks.

    The agency issued a statement late night stating that it had completed the initial phase of probe into the bomb blast in a house at Khagragarh village in Burdwan district of West Bengal.

    While two persons — Shakil Ahmed and Suvon Mandal alias Subhan — both allegedly residents of Bangladesh, were killed while manufacturing IEDs, one Abdul Hakim alias Hassan was injured. Hassan and three others including two women, one of them the widow of a suspected terrorist who died in the blast, were arrested.

    “Investigation so far has revealed that the accused persons and their associates were the members of JMB, a terrorist organisation proscribed in Bangladesh and they were preparing IEDs which were being transported to Bangladesh,” the NIA said in the statement.
    The agency said it is focussing on the activities of JMB covering all aspects including the funding of terror activities. It said it is also considering announcement of cash rewards for any information leading to the arrest of the absconding accused who include JMB members from Bangladesh.

    The NIA statement came hours after its Director-General, Sharad Kumar, inspected the house in Burdwan where the blast took place also took stock of the field investigation being conducted by the agency.

    After spending about 30 minutes at the blast site, Kumar inspected another house at nearby Mathpara on Badsahi Road where 40 improvised hand grenades were found. He also visited a house which one of the suspected dead terrorists Shakil had rented in Beldanga in Murshidabad. He later went to ‘Burqa Ghar’, apparently a burqa making unit run by Shakil but suspected to have been used as a place to meet the other accused.

    The visit came two weeks after the agency took over investigations. Later, Kumar held a meeting with the agency’s Kolkata team after which he said strategies have been worked out to arrest the absconding accused persons.

    “I have come to Kolkata to review the investigation. I had a detailed discussion with my officers. We have evolved strategies regarding arrests of absconding accused persons. I can’t reveal anything because it will affect the investigation,” Kumar said on his return.
