Involvement of JMB terrorists has been proved by investigation agencies in various terror attacks in India, including Burdwan bomb blast on 2nd October 2014 and Bodh Gaya blast on 19th January 2018. It has also established that JMB is recruiting members and raising funds in India for terror activities and procurement of arms and explosives. The home ministry also mentions that Assam police have found involvement of JMB terrorists in five cases in the state, and 56 members of the organisation have been arrested by Assam police.

According to the home ministry, JMB has also planned for establishing permanent bases within ten kilometres of India-Bangladesh border in West Bengal, Assam and Tripura, and it also plans to spread its network in South India with a goal to establish Caliphate in the Indian subcontinent.

In view of these findings, the union government has decided to include Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh in the list of banned organisations.
