NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) probing the Burdwan case is examining the links of suspected al-Qaeda and Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) terrorists with the Simulia Madrasa in the district.

Investigators said all the terrorists of the Burdwan module, who infiltrated the non-descript village in West Bengal to set up terror arms factory, were radicalised in jihadi ideology in the same Simulia Madrasa. Over a dozen NIA investigators from Delhi led by an IG and two DIG-rank officers are said to have identified several other key players in the terror ring and Intelligence Bureau and local officials have been roped in to assist the probe.

“At least four teams of the NIA have launched a simultaneous probe at Burdwan, Kolkata, Nadia and Barpeta in Assam. Six suspects were picked by the Assam police last week in connection with the Burdwan blast. They will be interrogated soon,” sources said. Meanwhile, a joint team of officials from the NIA, Central intelligence agencies and CIDs are interrogating three arrested suspects-- Razia, Amina and Badrul Alam Molla. The NIA officials said the case documents and properties are in the process of being handed over to the agency following  the order of the NIA Special Court, Kolkata.
