Agartala: Tripura Police have arrested three youth suspected to have links with outlawed Jamaat Ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) after being tipped off by the central intelligence agencies. 

Later, Sepahijala District and Session Court on Monday sent them to custody till April 7 next after filing of an FIR and asked the police to submit the case diary. The case has been was registered at Jatrapur police station under Sepahijala district.

“The court has directed the police to submit the case diary on next hearing scheduled on April 7. Till then, they will be in police custody and the court has also fixed the hearing for police remand prayer on April 7”, said SDPO Sonamura Banoj Biplab Das.

Public Prosecutor Narayan Debnath moved the police’s request for five days’ remand but the court insisted on going through the case diary first.

The suspects were detained based on the case lodged with Jatrapur police station and central intelligence inputs. Police sources said Imran Hossain (24) was first taken into custody from his Khadyakhola village after the police received inputs of his alleged involvement with the JMB operatives busted at Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. On March 13 last month, Jaheer Uddin and Akhil Ahmed were arrested in Bhopal and the intelligence sleuths got a clue of Imran’s involvement from them.

After interrogation, Imram allegedly divulged the names of Hameed Ali (34) and Abul Kashem (32). Hameed is a farmer, while Abul Kashem is a teacher in a madrasa. The trio was shifted to Bishalgarh police station for interrogation late on Saturday night.

A team of central intelligence agencies also reached Tripura and participated in the interrogation that continued for 24 hours. They were officially arrested on Sunday and produced before the court on Monday.

The police invoked several sections of IPC such as 120(B), 121, 124(a) and section 13(2), 18, 18(b), 38 and 39 of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against suspects. All the sections are non-bailable in nature.
