KOLKATA: National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and NSG DG Jayanta Narayan Choudhury will visit the blast site at Khagragarh in Burdwan district of West Bengal on Monday to take stock of the situation as it is being jointly probed by the NIA and the NSG.
National Investigation Agency (NIA) DG Sharad Kumar, who visited the blast site on Friday as well as some madrasas in the neighbouring Murshidabad district, which shares borders with Bangladesh, on Saturday returned to New Delhi after holding a meeting with officials here.
Sleuths of the Central agency found that the state has turned into a hub of Islamist terrorists during the last few years and the Burdwan terror module had spread their wings to other parts of the country. The fact that the state police was unaware of such terrorist activities and arms training being imparted to youths, including women, in several madrasas in the state has also surprised the sleuths.
They have discovered that the blasts carried out in other parts of the country were in fact planned from terror hideouts in West Bengal with links in Bangladesh.
Bank notes with seals of a bank in Karimnagar in Telengana, which was robbed by SIMI activists, have been found from the house of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen terrorist Shakil Gazi, who died in the October 2 blast in Burdwan.
