These 5,000 Rohingya Muslims under IB's close watch
Under the scanner of the Intelligence agencies is a number of Rohingya Muslims living in and around Delhi. Intelligence Bureau reports suggest that these persons are likely to fall prey to a group of terrorists who had infiltrated into the Kashmir Valley recently.
The latest intelligence report states that a group of Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorists who have infiltrated into the Valley are trying to get in touch with these people in an attempt to radicalise them. The warning comes in the wake of the Supreme Court agreeing to hear a petition against the deportation of Rohingya Muslims by India.
In addition to this Bangladesh has shared fresh information with India about the radicalisation plans by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. There have been repeated attempts by groups such as the Lashkar to instigate the Rohingya Muslims in India.
While rights groups have been arguing that deporting them would not be the right decision, the Indian government wants to take no chances.
It is a highly sensitive issue. One of the camps in Jammu and Kashmir too is very vulnerable to radicalisation, the IB says. They are easy prey for terror groups and repeated attempts are being made to take them into their fold, IB officials also say.
The IB also signaled the respective state police to keep a close watch on the Rohingya Muslims. States such as Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana among others also have a considerable presence of Rohingya Muslims, the IB says.
