Top JMB operative held with fake Indian papers in Tripura

Agartala, March 19 (IANS) A top cadre of Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) Abdul Malik was arrested from a bordering village in Tripura with fake Indian documents, police said on Thursday.

According to police, 35-year-old Malik was arrested late Wednesday evening at the bordering Raghna village under Dharmanagar police station in North Tripura District.

“Acting on the inputs of Military Intelligence, police and other security agencies have arrested the hardcore JMB cadre from a house with fake indian documents.

“During preliminary interrogation by the police and intelligence officials, the JMB cadre confessed that he is a Bangladeshi national and settled in India with fake documents,” the police official told IANS while refusing to disclose his identity.

“Abdul Malik also told the police that he has been illegally travelling to Bangladesh frequently. He has admitted to his links with other JMB cadres who are presently active in India. He revealed about his travel to Bengaluru and Chennai in the past. He is a wanted JMB cadre in Sylhet in (eastern) Bangladesh.”Top officials of central intelligence agencies including the National Investigation Agency (NIA) are going to north Tripura district headquarters Dharmanagar, around 200 km north of Tripura capital Agartala, to question the JMB operative.

North Tripura district police Chief Banupada Chakraborty told IANS over phone from Dharmanagar that the JMB cadre was produced in a local court, which sent him in seven-day police custody.

“Abdul Malik along with his wife Lipi Begum staying in a rented house at bordering Raghna village, has been doing work of mason in the locality. He told the local people that they are residents of Assam,” Chakraborty said.

The northeastern state of Tripura shares a 856-km international border with Bangladesh, of which a stretch of 67 km is still unfenced.
