Back in 1992-93, the Research and Analysis Wing undertook an operation in Bangladesh to immobilise targets of the Jamaat-e-Islami.

The National Investigating Agency (NIA) probing the Burdwan blasts is all set to file its chargesheet before the city civil court in Kolkata.

The United States of America announced that a group known as the Hizb ut-Tahrir had the potential of becoming more dangerous than the ISIS. While one would need to wait and watch how true that would turn out to be, the important aspect is that this group figures quite high on India’s list of dangerous outfits.
Indian agencies say that this group largely relies on political leaders and students in a bid to push its agenda. There are wings of this group across the world, but in the Sub-Continent, it has a prominent presence in Bangladesh and spills over into India.
50 Bodo leaders are on the hitlist of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh according to an investigation report of the National Investigating Agency. The bombs were being prepared and transported to Assam from the Burdhwan terror factory.
