Currently, the police are interrogating the individual extensively.”
Earlier Assam police has busted 9 Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) modules and arrested over 53 operatives of ABT and found their presence in Madrassa.
Former Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta had stated, “in Assam, when Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) modules were busted, we found they tried to radicalise through madrassas. We looked into madrassas who were conspicuous in their behaviour. So that there is no misuse of madrassa, we met the Islamic scholars and we wanted their opinion. We give them certain suggestions like opening a board and police verification of teachers.”
