HYDERABAD: A youth, who was planning to train Jihadis in Hyderabad was arrested by the special investigation team (SIT) sleuths when he visited Cherlapally Central prison to meet Mohammed Nasir, a member of the dreaded Bangladeshi terror outfit Harkat-ul-Jihadi Al-Islami (HUJI) Friday.
Nasir, a Bangladeshi migrant to Pakistan, was arrested along with five others by the city police for obtaining Aadhaar cards and passports by submitting fake ID proofs in August, this year.
After the arrest of four illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar along with two local brokers, the SIT had deputed a team to keep an eye on the persons coming to meet the accused during Mulaqats.
While the police were verifying the credentials of persons who visit the terror elements, they stumbled upon Alim Ul Islam Mandal, a native of Baltha village in Dakshin Dinajpur district of West Bengal. He came to Charlapally prison to meet Mohammed Nasir, the key accused , who is a relative of Abdul Jabbar, the leader of HUJI.
Additional commissioner of police (ACP), Crimes, Swati Lakra said that Alim Ul Isalm, the Bengal man who was detained when he came to Cherlapally Central prison to meet Mohammad Nasir was planning to impart training to Jihadis.
“Mohammad Nasir and Alim Ul Islam Mandal worked together in a factory at Panipat and they along with others decided to start a madrasa to impart training for Jihadis. During interrogation, Nasir admitted that he along with Alim Ul Islam Mandal and another person had conspired to establish a madrasa to impart Jihadi training. Alim Ul Islam came to the city to meet Nasir to chart out their plans,” he said.
