Assam police nab two suspected Al-Qaeda terrorists from Guwahati Rly station

The two terrorist identified as Bahar Mia, and Rasel Mia arrested by the Assam police near Guwahati Railway station.


Assam Police have foiled a potential terror plot with the arrest of two suspected Bangladeshi nationals linked to the Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT), a banned terror outfit affiliated with Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).

 

The apprehension, announced on Tuesday by the Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) of Assam Police, identified the arrested men as Bahar Mia (30) and Rasel Mia (40).

 

While details surrounding their movements remain unclear, Assam Police Special Branch (SB) sources revealed that the duo entered Assam from Gujarat on May 13th.

 

The operation unfolded at Guwahati's Paltan Bazar railway station, where authorities apprehended the suspects as they reportedly planned to board the Tripura Express and potentially cross the border back into Bangladesh.

 

Incriminating evidence, including Aadhaar and PAN cards suspected to be fraudulent, was seized from their possession.

 

"These individuals," a police statement declared, "intended to radicalise and mobilise vulnerable Muslim youth in Assam and India for recruitment into their terror outfit and to carry out violent acts."

 

The arrests raise concerns about potential infiltration attempts and highlight the ongoing threat posed by terror networks. Investigations suggest the duo entered India illegally and may have procured fraudulent documents in an attempt to establish a terror network within Assam.

 

This development comes on the heels of another apprehension in Tripura on April 30th, where three suspected Bangladeshi nationals – Manju Ali, Rashel Ahmed, and Md Fahim – were arrested in Dharmanagar, North Tripura, after exhibiting suspicious behavior

 

Subsequent investigation revealed they had entered India without proper documentation.

 

According to the police, the seized fraudulent documents suggest a calculated attempt to blend in and potentially establish a sleeper cell.

 

While the specific purpose of the arrested duo's visit to Gujarat remains under investigation, their presence in a western state before their arrival in Assam raises questions about potential connections or a broader network. Assam, with its sizeable Muslim population and history of insurgency, has long been a target for terror outfits. The ABT, known for its brutal tactics and affiliation with Al-Qaeda, is a particular cause for concern.
