Live bombs found in Bengaluru based on information given by arrested JMB terrorist

The NIA had received the whereabouts of these bombs from Habibur Rehman Sheikh, the accused in the Burdwan bomb blast case.

In a shocking development, the Bengaluru police on Wednesday retrieved two live bombs from Ramanagara, 50 kilometres from Karnataka’s capital Bengaluru. The discovery of bombs comes hours after a key operative of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh Habibur Rehman Sheikh (28) alias Habibur or Sheikh was arrested in Karnataka.

The live bombs were found in the stormwater drain in Tippunagar in Ramanagara, Bengaluru. Bomb squads and sniffer dogs were rushed to the spot. According to sources, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had received the whereabouts of these bombs from Sheikh, the accused in the Burdwan bomb blast case.


Sheikh was charge-sheeted for his role in Burdwan bomb blast and his direct involvement in the conspiracy of Janaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh to wage war against India and Bangladesh. Sheikh reportedly had close links with senior JMB leaders Jahidul Islam, Rahmatullah and Maulana Yousuf.

In another incident, four other ISIS operatives belonging to neo-JMB were arrested yesterday in West Bengal. Out of those 4, 3 were Bangladeshi nationals who were illegally staying in India to escape arrest in Bangladesh. The JMB aims to topple democratic governments in India and Bangladesh and establish Shariat compliant Caliphate rule.
