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.

On August 14, four persons including Mohammed Nasir, a Bangladeshi migrant to Pakistan, suspected to be having close links with banned terror outfit HUJI, were arrested by the city police.  Mohammed Nasir, Joynal Abedin and Faizal Mohamoud, all from Bangladesh and one Zia Ur Rahman of Myanmar were arrested. Later, two more agents were nabbed for helping the accused to obtain passports, voter ID card and Aadhaar card using fake address. Some police constables attached to the Special Branch were also suspended by the Hyderabad police for issuing passports to the accused.

Mohammed Nasir, the key accused, is a relative of Abdul Jabbar, leader of HUJI. He had been living in India illegally since 2010 and in Hyderabad since March 2015. According to investigators, it was Abdul Jabbar who indoctrinated Nasir with Jihadi ideology and sent him to India.

Nasir, along with his wife, stayed at Jalpally in Cyberabad. During his stay in the city, he received several illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar, and arranged for their stay at Masood’s residence as tenants. Showing Masood’s address, passports and other ID cards he arranged Aadhaar cards and other documents for the illegal immigrants.
