Jehadi activists are on in Assam, acknowledges CM Tarun Gogoi
New Delhi, Oct 29: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday conceded that jehadi activities were going on in his state but denied having any information about the main opposition party AIDUF allegedly having links with those involved in it.

The Congress chief minister said his government might transfer the probe of the Barpeta case in which six persons were arrested in connection with the blast in Burdwan on October 2, to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Gogoi, who met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh here on Wednesday, said his government acknowledged the presence of ISI activities but there is no proof against the AIDUF.

Media reports in the northeastern state alleged that the AIDUF, headed by MP Badruddin Ajmal, had alleged links with Bangladeshi jehadi activists.

"I will find out. In fact, we will go against any such individual. Any anti-national activity, whether jehadi or terrorist activities. Our main aim is that those who indulged in anti-national activities, jehadi activities or terrorist activities, they should be brought to book, they should be punished. We are vigilant," Gogoi said in reply to questions of alleged jehadi activities in Assam, according to PTI.

Gogoi said his government was cooperating with the NIA from the very first day for it felt that it was easier for the agency to trace the origin of the case. It may be mentioned here that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee objected to the NIA's investigation into the Burdwan blast, saying it was a design by the Centre to violate the norms of federalism.
