Kolkata, Dec 4: The Enforcement Directorate probing the money laundering aspect in the Burdwan blast case has unearthed a few suspect bank accounts and would probe whether they were linked to terror funding.

The source said the agency had obtained the account numbers of the persons whose identities were yet to be ascertained.

The agency would probe possible links of these accounts to find whether money was used for terror funding.

Early November, the ED had registered a case of money laundering against Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) and several of its recruits in connection with the blast.

The case was registered by the agency based on the FIR filed by the National Investigation Agency and the information provided by it. The NIA is probing the terror angle of the blast which took place in October two.

The source said that accounts of the accused persons named in the FIR were also being probed to ascertain the money trail.

Asked whether the agency had got any clue so far on money raised by Ponzi firms being used for terror funding, the source said no evidence was there as of now.

Soon after the NIA took charge of the probe, a team from the terror funding cell of the agency met ED officials to share information.
