Suspected terrorist Mohammed Mosiruddin received several phone calls from Syria, Iraq and Bangladesh.
Kolkata: Suspected terrorist Mohammed Mosiruddin received several phone calls from Syria, Iraq and Bangladesh, investigators have claimed to cite details of the call list on his mobile phone.
"It was quite surprising to see so many calls on the suspected terrorist's mobile phone made from foreign countries. After checking the numbers we have found that a few calls were made from Syria, some from Iraqi numbers while some were made to and received from Bangladesh also," a CID officer told PTI.
"There were calls made and received from other states of the country also. We are verifying them and trying to find out who and why the calls were made to Mosiruddin," he said.
Asked whether any documents related to Mosiruddin's link to Islamic State (ISIS) and Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) were seized, the officer said, "We will not be able to divulge that but I can confirm that we have got definite clues relating to Mosiruddin's links to the terror groups."
It was learnt that during a joint grilling session by CID, National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Intelligence Bureau (IB) sleuths, Mosiruddin has said a list of top IPS officers in the country including from West Bengal were being prepared.
"But he was mum when asked for what purpose the list was getting prepared ... We are checking whether he (Mosiruddin) was lying to confuse us or not," he said, adding the suspected terrorist has claimed to have downloaded images of several IPS officers from the Internet also.
Questioning Mosiruddin, it was found that he was back in West Bengal and was heading to his native place Labhpur in Birbhum district after six years on an "assignment" to kill someone there.
CID today arrested Kallu Sheikh and Amin Sheikh who were waiting for Mosiruddin at Burdwan station and were detained along with him on Monday night. It was being suspected that the two men were working for one of the two terror groups and were recruited by Mosiruddin.
