Kolkata: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday arrested another accused — Abdul Wahab Momin — in connection with last year's Burdwan blast.
Momin, who was arrested near Sealdah in Kolkata by NIA, had been absconding since the October second blast.
Others arrested in the case, like the alleged mastermind Sheikh Rehmatullah alias Sajjid, have been associated with the Bangaldeshi terror outfit — Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).
The NIA has arrested over 18 people, mostly Bangladeshis, for the blast that took place at a house in Khagragarh in Burdwan, killing two JMB militants and injuring another.
The agency said the investigation so far has revealed that the militant outfit had established its network in many districts -- particularly in Murshidabad, Nadia, Malda, Birbhum and Burdwan in Bengal, Barpeta in Assam, and Sahibganj and Pakur in Jharkhand.
