NIA busts Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh terror module in Bengaluru, seizes live IEDs and components

NIA also arrested 3 terrorists belonging to the banned terror outfit

In a significant terror crackdown, the National Investigating Agency (NIA) has arrested 3 terrorists belonging to the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) module in Karnataka. Live Improvised Explosive Devices(IEDs), hand grenades and other incriminating materials have also been recovered from the terror module. A plan to bomb several places in Karnataka has been foiled by the investigating agencies.

The IEDs recovered by the NIA are in fully functional and assembled state, along with the other components of IEDs. The IEDs, hand-grenades and other incriminating materials were recovered from Soladevanahalli area in Bengaluru, the capital city of the Karnataka state. The NIA has seized 5 fabricated hand-grenades, 1 Timer-device, 3 electronic circuits and suspected explosives and ready-made IEDs from the location. It is speculated that NIA was fed the information of this terror ring by arrested JMB operative Habibur Rehman Sheikh.

Bengaluru has been the preferred location for the JMB terror outfit for carrying out their nefarious activities. In the past, the Bengaluru police had retrieved two live bombs from Ramanagara, 50 kilometres from Karnataka’s capital Bengaluru. The discovery of bombs came hours after a key operative of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh Habibur Rehman Sheikh (28) alias Habibur or Sheikh was arrested in Karnataka.
