NIA searches multiple locations in Kerala and West Bengal in connection with anti-terror probe

The six accused are Sidhikul Akbar, Hashir Mohammed, Taha Mohammed, Fayez Farooq, Sultan Abdullah and Muhammed Irfan.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) searched seven locations in Kerala in connection with its probe against the members of the terrorist outfit Jund Al Aqsa believed to be based in war-torn Syria, and it raided a house in West Bengal's Murshidabad district and arrested an Al-Qaeda suspect.

Meanwhile, the National Investigation Agency arrested yet another suspected Al Qaeda operative following a joint raid with West Bengal police in the border district of Murshidabad.

The NIA, trailing the suspected anti-national forces in the border districts, after the dreaded 2014 Khagragarh blast in Bardhaman, raided a hideout at Jalangi on Monday night and arrested Al Qaeda suspect Mosaraf Mondal after interrogating him, sources said on Tuesday.

A team of NIA sleuths following an input arrived from Kolkata on Monday and raided the house of Abdul Mondal at Nacherpara in Jalangi and arrested suspected Al Qarda operative Mosafar Mondal after preliminary interrogation.

The raid was conducted with the help of local police.

Police also began an investigation this morning after the relatives of the suspect alleged that the arrested person was innocent.

The NIA took the arrested suspect to Kolkata for further interrogation. The central agency in early November had arrested suspected Al-Qaeda operative, Abdul Momin Mondal, 32, from this district.

In September, the National Investigation Agency had conducted simultaneous raids at several locations at Ernakulam (Kerala) and Murshidabad and arrested nine terrorists associated with Pakistan sponsored module of Al Qaeda. Of them, six were from Murshidabad
