JMB members had been trying to contact various agencies regarding militant activities, says DMP CTTC chief

The Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), a banned militant outfit, was trying to spread its tentacles across India and a list of 125 suspects have been shared with different states, India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) Chief YC Modi said on Monday, several Indian outlets report.

Addressing a meeting of chiefs of the country’s Anti Terrorism Squads (ATS), Modi said the JMB has spread its activities in states like Jharkhand, Bihar, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Kerala in the guise of Bangladeshi immigrants.

"The NIA has shared with states concerned a list of 125 suspected activists who have close links with the JMB leadership," he said.

Inspector General of the NIA Alok Mittal said from 2014 to 2018, the JMB has set up 20-22 hideouts in Bangalore and tried to spread its bases in South India.

"The JMB even conducted a trial of rocket launchers in the Krishnagiri hills along the Karnataka border," he said.

Mittal said the JMB was keen to attack Buddhists temples to take revenge for the plight of Rohingiya Muslims in Myanmar.

Meanwhile, Dhaka Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit Chief Monirul Islam told Dhaka Tribune: "For the last couple of years, we have been coordinating with various agencies [Indian] regarding militant activities."

“These official or unofficial discussions have been going on after Khagragarh blast in October 2, 2014,” he added.

"However, they did not discuss anything in connection to the NIA list of 125 suspected activists, who have close links with the JMB leadership," CTTC chief said.

“JMB considers themselves to be an international organization now, and claims to be operate under the name of ‘so-called’ Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, India.”
