Guwahati/IBNS: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday filed a charge sheet against two Bangladeshi nationals in connection with a terror-related case of Ansar-al-Islam.

The charge sheet has been filed against two Bangladeshi accused Mahmud Hassan alias Shariful Islam and Mohamad Sa’ad Hussain alias Mohamad Sayad Hussain in the NIA special court at Aizwal in Mizoram.

The case was re-registered by NIA on Sept 17, 2019, which had arisen out of FIR at Marpara police station under Mamit district of Mizoram.

According to the reports, two suspected Bangladeshi nationals were detained by the villagers of Silsuri when they could not produce the valid documents and gave unsatisfactory replies to the queries about their antecedents and purpose of presence in the area.

They were later handed over to the BSF personnel of Silsuri Border Out-Post (BOP) who in turn handed over the two accused to Marpara police station.

The local police registered the case for investigation which was later handed over to NIA.       

During the investigation, the NIA established the identity of the accused as 25-year-old Mahmud Hassan alias Shariful Islam of Barherchar village in Narsingdi, Dhaka Division, Bangladesh and 31-year-old Mohamad Sa’ad Hussain alias Mohamad Sayad Hussain of Doharpar village in Magura, Division Khulna, Bangladesh.

The premier investigation agency has also established that both the accused are members of Ansar-al-Islam, a banned terrorist organization in Bangladesh.

Both the accused crossed the international border of India and Bangladesh illegally entered the state of Tripura in November 2018.

They concealed their location and identity based on fake Aadhaar cards and the fake Aadhaar cards were given to them by their handlers in Bangladesh.

The investigation further revealed that accused Mahmud Hassan alias Shariful Islam had travelled from Agartala to Bangalore in pursuance to conspiracy of terrorist acts in India and stayed in Bangalore for eight to nine months (November 2018 to July 2019).

During his stay in Bangalore, he conducted a recce of some public places in Bangalore. The investigation has also revealed that on instructions of his handler, the accused financially assisted another arrested ABT (Ansarullah Bangla Team) member lodged in Kolkata jail.

ABT is another banned terrorist organization in Bangladesh. Both the accused later criminally conspired, as per directions of their handlers in Bangladesh and tried to procure weapons from various places in the State of Tripura and Mizoram in pursuance of the conspiracy of committing terrorist acts in India.

During the investigation, a large number of incriminating documents were recovered from their seized digital devices.

Further investigation is going on.
