Gov. calls Bengal ‘home to illegal bomb-making’ after 6 Al Qaeda Jihadis arrested from state


West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar slammed Bengal’s government saying the state is a hub of illegal bomb-making, after six terrorists were arrested from Bengal following a raid on Saturday morning.

Three more terrorists were arrested on the same day from the South Indian state of Kerala after the National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted simultaneous raids in Ernakulam. All the extremists are due to appear in courts are in police custody.

“State has become home to illegal bomb-making that has the potential to unsettle democracy. Police @MamataOfficial busy in carrying out political errands and taking on the opposition. Those at helm @WBPolice cannot escape their accountability for this alarming decline in law and order,” Mr. Dhankhar wrote in a Tweet, apparently jabbing CM Mamata Banerjee.

Gov. Dhankhar also slammed the state’s director general of police for being distanced from reality. “His ”Ostrich Stance” is very disturbing. Appreciate the role of policemen in general-they are working in difficult situations. The problem is with those at the helm who are unmindful of conduct and are politically guided,” Mr. Dhankhar said in another Tweet, targeting the Mamata Banerjee administration.

Huge amounts of incriminating materials including Jihadi literature, digital devices, country-made guns, sharp weapons, documents, locally-made body armors were found in the dens of the Pakistan-sponsored module of the al-Qaeda, a press release said. Bomb-making articles and literature were also recovered.

Preliminary investigations from the scene found the group of terrorists were radicalized by the Al Qaeda on social media and were prepping to lodge attacks in multiple locations, including NCR Delhi.

It also tuned out, to meet their objective, the terrorists were actively fundraising and were even ready to head toward Delhi to procure arms, the official press release said.
