The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad along with the West Bengal police arrested two JMB operatives, Musharraf alias Must and Rubel Ahmed. Both are Bangladeshi nationals.

They had infiltrated into India through West Bengal, before making their journey into Delhi. Both were picked from Greater Noida.

Initial investigations suggest that the duo had planned to carry out a big strike in Delhi. They were in the process of activating a module and even getting in touch with the Rohingya settled in Delhi.

The Intelligence Bureau has warned several times that the Rohingyas are a cause for concern and handlers have been getting in touch with some of them to undertake terror activities.

Further it was also found that the duo were also raising funds for the attack. The JMB had tasked the duo to carry out a major operation. The police say that they are also checking to find if the duo were trying to recruit anyone in the Delhi area.

The JMB, founded in 1998 by Shaikh Abdur Rahman, was banned in 2005 for setting off about 500 bombs simultaneously all around Bangladesh.
