GUWAHATI: Amidst the increasing number of COVID-19 cases across the country, there is a worrying situation regarding the internal security of the entire country and states including Assam. Jehadis have created a massive network in 24 States of India including north-eastern states. According to a report by the Indian Intelligence Bureau, jmb, new JMB, jamatul mujahideen, al-qaida, etc., the groups of terrorists which have been banned by the world are operating their operation jihadi business from New Delhi. According to an intelligence agency report, the activities of jehadi organisations are being carried out from New Delhi.
The findings of the report showed that religious-based extremists and terror outfits such as Islamic State (IS), Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), Indian Mujahideen (IM), Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Nav-JMB, Al Qaeda, other ‘Jihadi’ organisations are gradually expanding their base in at least 24 states including Assam. Further, the devastating second wave of COVID-19 epidemic in the country and the recently concluded elections have helped such organizations to create a wide spread in different parts of the country by successfully managing coal smugglers, cattle smugglers, drug traffickers etc. Reports said that three special business tycoons were involved in the smuggling from Southeast Asian countries to different parts of the world.
Two of these three businessmen have settled in Guwahati and smuggled from Myanmar via Mizoram, Dimapur and used to smuggle illegal items into Bangladesh. According to a report by the Central Investigation Agency, it has also been stated that these terror outfits have managed top officials of border police and headquarters to continue their smuggling process. The report also stated that the two traders also gifted foreign cars to the investigating agency officials to manage the ongoing taking process. According to the police, two business tycoons involved in smuggling are looking at the entire process as a normal law and order situation other than terrorist activities. Reports also revealed that soon after it came to light, assam police has launched an internal investigation and seized foreign cars without any valid documents.
According to central investigating agency sources, though the police have seized the cars gifted by the jehadis, it is yet to be ascertained where the other car has gone. It is very unfortunate that these two businessmen Mushtaq and Javed are continuing their smuggling from Guwahati near assam police headquarters in Ulubari. Both Mushtaq and Javed smuggle coal, gold, cattle, drugs, etc. They have also found a way to smuggle cows purchased from Bihar, Punjab, Jharkhand etc. and smuggled from Bangladesh to Garo Hills and other parts of the North-East.
The report said that cattle which are purchased for Rs 10,15,000 or Rs 20,000 have been sold in Bangladesh for Rs 80,000 to Rs 1 lakh. The report also revealed that there are teams and leaders in organizations that operate mainly from the national capital and shocking findings say that more than 20 lakh people have been recruited in 24 states. The report also asserts that many individuals and non-governmental firms that join these organizations are actually unaware that they were also working with extremist or terrorist organizations. The report said that these citizens were given silence in various ‘jihadi activities’ disguised as working for social and developmental reasons. The report also states that cattle smuggling by infiltrators and infiltrators are a part of planned terrorism and extremism through various illegal activities including drug trafficking and running of human trafficking gangs. The findings of the report claim that there are three prominent suspects in Assam who are agents of Bangladesh and have also established good relations with some of the top administrative officers of the state. Though they have been identified as smugglers of illegal goods, secret agents have been expanding their organizational base in Assam and north-eastern region and other parts of the country. Meanwhile, the Central and State Governments have taken measures to control the process of illegal smuggling. The discussion on security of Dimapur-Myanmar border two days ago has also raised a new ray of hope for controlling the terror practice in the name of smuggling. On the other hand, Assam Police has also taken measures to control drug trafficking in different parts of the State by manipulating the top officials in the State. A large number of illegal stoves, coal, drugs etc.
