Agartala, Apr 06: The Opposition Congress in Tripura has accused the ruling Left Front of backing anti-Indian forces -- Pakistan-based ISI, al-Qaeda and Bangladesh-based HUJI.
Demanding a judicial inquiry into the terrorist-politician nexus, Opposition leader Ratan Lal Nath expressed concern over the arrest of a HUJI activist here by West Bengal CID officials last week. He alleged that a member of the Assembly had helped the person to hire room in the city and recommended the Sub-Divisional Magistrate for issuing Permanent Resident Certificate for him.
Referring to the arrest of a Bangladeshi youth, suspected to have links with HUJI, from the city by the CID, Mr Nath said, ''State government should inquire how he took shelter and who helped him to get permanent residential certificate.'' He also said the anti-Indian forces were very much active in the state and had been using the bordering Bangladesh as safe corridor for the International terrorists as well as arms smugglers.
West Bengal police also nabbed two other Bangladeshi nationals on 15 January last and recovered several incriminating documents pertaining to maps and details of army camps in North Bengal areas.
