Indian police claimed to have arrested another suspected member of neo-Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) from Barasat near Kolkata.

Lalu Sen alias Rahul Sen or Rahul Kumar was booked by the Special Task Force (STF) of the West Bengal Police from his residence in Barasat Municipality area in the North 24 Parganas district on Wednesday night, police said on Thursday.

The development comes just three days after three Bangladeshis, said to be JMB operatives, were held in Kolkata.

The latest arrestee is understood to be a close associate of the three suspected JMB terrorists arrested from south Kolkata on Sunday, the Press Trust of India reports quoting a senior police officer.

“Two laptops, an iPad, two mobile phones, and some incriminating documents were seized from his possession. He is a close associate of Naziur Rehman alias Jayram Byapari,” said the officer.

He facilitated the JMB terrorists and provided them logistical and financial support, he said, adding that the arrestee used to provide financial support to the terror organisation through ‘Hundi’ channel.

He was also involved in making fake documents such as voter identity cards, PAN cards and Aadhaar cards, he said.

The STF of the Kolkata Police arrested JMB operatives Najiur Rahman, Rabiul Islam and Sabir from Haridevpur area in south Kolkata.

The three terrorists had come from Bangladesh to Kolkata a few months ago and living in a rented room in the middle-class neighbourhood.

It is suspected that they may have links with Al-Qaeda and Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (HuJI) and were setting up terror modules in West Bengal, as per the police.

A number of JMB operatives, including Indians, were arrested in West Bengal in the past few years.

The JMB, which carried out a terror attack at a popular cafe in Dhaka in 2016 in which 22 people, including 17 foreigners, were killed, is trying to spread its tentacles in India, the NIA had said in 2019.

Citing terrorist acts, Indian government in late May 2019 banned the Islamist outfit, 14 years after Bangladesh did the same.
