The NIA counsel submitted that Ibrahim was arrested from Pakur in neighbouring Jharkhand and a country-made pistol with six rounds of ammunition, four live country-made bombs and a computer chip containing jihadi literature were found in his possession.

It was also stated that Ibrahim was a JMB module active in Murshidabad district of West Bengal and he was arrested on the basis of a warrant against him.

He had fled to Pakur after the October 2 accidental blast in Burdwan that claimed two lives and brought to the fore an IED-manufacturing factory active in the garb of a tailoring shop.
