Burdwan blast probe: NIA arrests a Myanmar national for alleged role in organising terror camps

Hyderabad: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a Burmese national Khalid Mohammed from Hyderabad for his alleged involvement in the Burdwan blast case probe. 

The Burmese national is allegedly an IED maker belonging to the Rohingya Muslim solidarity group. He is believed to have have organised terror camps along the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.

He was found in possession of incriminating videos of training materials, literature relating to poisons, IED making, bomb making, explosives and Jihadi Literature including that of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). 

The 28-year-old has admitted to have undergone training conducted by Tehreek-e- Azadi-Arakan with trainers from Pakistan-based terror group Tehreek e-Taliban. 

Khalid was residing in Hyderabad and had managed fake identity documents. He is found to be without valid travel documents. The NIA said that further investigation is in progress.

The NIA will question him further and is hoping that his revelations might lead to unraveling links that could solve the Burdwan blast case. 

The investigating agency had last week claimed that it was being targeted as it was close to cracking the Burdwan blast case after a crude bomb was thrown near its office in the CRPF camp in Kolkata where the agency is stationed.

It had also said that this could be a threat or a kind of an intimidation tactic used by people who are linked to this terror module and that possibilities cannot be ruled out which the police.

The NIA is currently holding several key suspected terrorists who are alleged to have played a role in the terror module in its custody while it has also claimed it is in the process of arresting the other fugitives terrorists who are currently on the run.
