Agartala, Nov 10: With the threat perception from Jihadi elements and subsequent advice from the Union Home Ministry, the Tripura government has decided to send a group of senior police officers for a three-month special training.
Official sources here today said the training would be conducted by the Army in the Northeast Police Academy campus at Barapani in Meghalaya, Hyderabad and New Delhi where about 30 officers would be imparted training to tackle the latest modules of terrorism.
Besides training, the state police had already procured sophisticated gadgets and enhanced the intelligence network to tackle the threats while deciding to deploy trained manpower in all sub-divisions, officials said.
The sources also stated that the Northeast militants had changed their action plan in the region and were now involved with Jihadi elements to destabilse peace and tranquility in Northeast India.
Referring to the report on the serial blasts in Assam, intelligence officials said it had established that Bangladesh-based HuJI provided the expertise to ULFA and NDFB and they used a deadly mixture of RDX, ammonium nitrate and plasticised explosives to carry out the blasts which led to greater casualties.
The serial blasts in Agartala, where terrorists triggered four blasts within an hour, were the first synchronised explosions in the Northeast while the Assam serial blasts were carried out within 20 minutes and at least 80 kg RDX were used in Assam blast.
