Suspected IS man sent to Bengal police custody

Kolkata, July 6 (IANS) A West Bengal court on Wednesday remanded Mohammad Masiuddin, arrested on suspicion of having links with the Islamic State (IS), in 14-day police custody.

Masiuddin alias Musa, 25, was detained at Burdwan railway station on Monday and subsequently arrested on Tuesday by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) after his interrogation allegedly revealed links with “foreign extremists”, including the IS.

He was presented before a court in Howrah which remanded him in CID custody for 14 days.

He was picked up by the sleuths off a train while he was on his way to his home in Labhpur in Birbhum district.

According to CID Deputy Inspector General Dilip Kumar Adak, Musa is a native of Labhpur but used to live in Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu along with his wife and two children and worked in a grocery shop.

Police seized a 13-inch machete and an improvised firearm from his possession.

State and central intelligence agencies, including the National Investigation Agency (NIA), have been questioning the man.

The investigators are also studying the data recovered from his mobile phone which have revealed “his terror links”, according to officials.

Musa is the second person to be arrested from West Bengal for suspected links with the IS.

The NIA in March arrested Ashik Ahammed alias Raja, a resident of Dhaniakhali in Hooghly district, for being an “IS facilitator”.

The arrest comes in the wake of the deadly terror attack in Dhaka in which 20 people were killed. The state has been on high alert with the Border Security Force intensifying vigil across the India-Bangladesh border.

The police has also not ruled out Musa’s involvement with the Bangladeshi militant outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).

An accidental blast at a house in Khagragarh in Burdwan district in October 2014 led to the NIA busting a JMB terror module in the state.


    • Joker Rapidex Rampa,

      I have posted you SO many links today. And prima facie, it looks like you haven’t even opened up your Rapidex. AND, in ALL those links, it says – AN AMERICAN (in Yumreeka, of course) is some 8 – 58 times MORE likely to be MURDERED by a cop than some Wahabbi nut.

      So, why drag some crap from Bangladesh on your silly head and start imagining stuff?

  1. Joker Praveena Pinto,
    Do you know how many people get killed by Police in India? Do more people get killed by Police in India than Terrorists? This is a trick question. Let’s see if you can answer….smiles….

  2. “Joker PP, Do you know how many people get killed by Police in India?” – Nanna Preethiya Yumreeki RampaNNA

    No sir. I don’t. So, please release some ‘stats” and revert. Merci.

  3. There is a reason why I posted my trick question. See how easily joker pinto fell for it and posted two contradicting messages!! LOL Police brutality is a separate topic and we can talk about it. Instead, he tries to deflect the real issue of terrorism and brings up all unrelated topics to fool himself. What a simpleton!

    Preethiya Rapidex RampaNNA’avre,

    Nowhere have I endorsed terrorism. And yet, you start hallucinating and spew up gibberish daily. And what I have noticed (amongst many others) is that the moment I point out police brutality in the US, you act like a cat whose backside has been used as a dartboard by some sicko and allege that my ‘Murudeshwara eeza’ was rejected.

    And, when I post a video of Saffron terror (be it from 2006 or even before), kalas…. I’m branded an ‘Anti National’, you ‘explore’ the possibility of booking me on charges of Sedition and then further allege that my ‘Yumreeki eeza’ was rejected.

    Now, do you realize why you are the sole undisputed heavyweight Simpleton here and beyond?
