Bengaluru: In a significant breakthrough, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) was able to bust a bomb making unit today and nab three Bangladeshis in connection with it. The investigation agency also found grenades and Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) from the location.
NIA had received information about the manufacturing unit from the accused behind Burdwan blast, Habibur Rahman, who has been in NIA custody since January, 2019.
The Burdwan blast occurred in 2014 when a bomb exploded at a house in Khagragarh locality of Brdwan in West Bengal. The accused, including Habibur Rahman, were part of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh(JMB) terror outfit.
The investigating agency was able to locate and raid the location with the information they got after interrogating Rahman. They got 5 fabricated hand grenades, 1 time device, 3 electric circuits, suspected explosive substances and different parts for making bombs.
Shockingly, one fully made IED was also recovered by NIA in the raid, which was meant to be blown up in some of the crowded areas of Bengaluru. Fortunately, the NIA were able to bust the terror group and arrest three of the terrorists behind the manufacturing unit.
A fresh case has been filed against Habibur Rahman and his aides at the Soladevanahalli police station following the raids and seizure of the bomb materials.
