Rajnath orders Immediate Neutralisation of JMB Terror Modules


New Delhi, Oct 28: With fresh inputs on the Burdwan blast indicating pan-India existence of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Home Minister Rajnath Singh today ordered immediate neutralisation of the terror modules of the banned group.

The directive came after National Security Advisor Ajit Doval briefed the Home Minister about the JMB network in the country as well as people associated with it.

Doval, who visited the Burdwan blast site yesterday along with NSG chief Jayanta Choudhury and NIA chief Sharad Kumar, gave a detailed presentation to Singh about the findings of the explosion in the West Bengal town.

After visiting the blast site yesterday, Doval met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and discussed about the JMB operations in the state. He said there is a need for close coordination between Central and state agencies to check the activities of terror group.

Investigators probing the Burdwan blast case have found that 25-30 modules of the JMB are suspected to be spread out across the country, particularly in West Bengal, Assam and South India.
