Bangladeshi terror outfit spreading tentacles in Odisha: NIA DG
New Delhi: Activities of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), a Bangladeshi terrorist organisation, have increased in Odisha, Assam and Jharkhand in recent past, said National Investigation Agency (NIA) Director General YC Modi here today.
Operatives of the JMB are carrying out their activities in the states disguising as Bangladeshi immigrants, said Modi at NIA’s two-day national conference of chiefs of Anti-Terrorism Squad and Special Task Force (STF) that commenced today.
The terror outfit has increased its area of operations in India and expanded to Bihar, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Kerala, he said.
The NIA has identified 125 suspicious names of JNB operatives and shared them with other agencies, Modi said, adding that the agency has done excellent work in curbing terror funding and Maoist activities.
