Burdwan blast: NIA takes arrested terrorists to their operation site

Kolkata: The NIA on Monday took the two terrorists arrested in connection with the Burdwan blast to Beldanga area of Murshidabad district to identify the places from where they used to operate.
"Today we took Sajid and Hakim to Beldanaga area in Murshidabad district to identify the site of their operation and the kind of activities they used to do," a National Investigation Agency official said on condition of anonymity.
The team also went to Lalgola area near the Indo -Bangladesh border and inspected some spots, a top district police officer said.
Shakil Ahmed, one of the JMB terrorists who died in the Burdwan blast on October 2, had spent several months in Beldanga and ran a shop there.
A large number of IEDs were recovered from the house in Burdwan's Khagragarh where the blast had occurred. Two persons were killed in the incident.
An international terror network having interests in Bangladesh is suspected to have a hand in it and of the eight arrested so far in connection with the blast, most are nationals of that country.
The Bangladeshi team had already interacted with the four NIA officials, who visited Dhaka recently and handed over documents to them regarding presence of JMB in several districts of West Bengal.
NIA's information had helped the Dhaka sleuths to nab four JMB suspects, including JMB women wing chief Fatema Begum, who is also the wife of Burdwan blast prime accused Sajid.
