Special Task Force of West Bengal police has nabbed two operatives of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh from state’s Murshidabad district, with possession of explosives materials, taking the number of arrested operatives this month to six.

Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh or JMB is a terrorist organization which operates from Bangladesh. It was reported to be behind the Dhaka Terror attack of 2016. They have been active in Bangladesh, and demand formation of an Islamic theocratic state based on sharia, replacing the constitutionally secular republic of Bangladesh.

Moshibur Rahman alias Farooque, age 35, and Ruhul Amin alias Saifullah, age 26, were nabbed by collective efforts of Kolkata Special Task Force and Murshidabad area police.

“Both Moshibur and Ruhul, residents of Murshidabad district, are active members of the outlawed JMB. A cache of explosive materials, including aluminum dust, Calether (spirit of ether) and sulphuric acid, have been recovered from their possession,” An official was quoted by Press Trust of India.

Both the nabbed operative are associated with Kauser and Sajjad, also operatives of JMB, who were arrested last month in connection with 2014 Burdwan blast case. On 2nd October 2014, an explosion had occurred in a two-storeyed building in the Khagragarh locality of Burdwan. The budling was later discovered to be owned by a TMC leader Nurul Hasan Chowdhury. Two people had lost their lives due to blast.

According to police, Moshibur Rahman and Ruhul Amin were planning to get Kauser released, with help of acid Bombs.

On 16th February, Ariful Islam alias Arif was nabbed from Babughat area. He was nabbed in connection with the low-intensity bomb blast that exploded in Bodh Gaya’s Mahabodhi Temple complex, in 2018.

In 2017, it was reported that JMB is coordinating with the Islamic State to spread terror in Bangladesh and India. Some of the larger plans of the JMB was publicity for IS in India and to also spur recruitment for the group.
