Guwahati: Assam police apprehended a suspected terrorist who allegedly has links with an Al-Qaeda network in Bangladesh from the city's Fatasil Ambari here on Wednesday.
As per reports, the suspected terrorist has been identified as Amjad Ajmal Hussain.
As per the initial investigation, it has come to the fore that Amjad was allegedly having direct links with a person named Mohammed Suman, who is believed to be a member of Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).
Reportedly, Amjad joined the Ansarula Bangla Team (ABT) and later was appointed head of the ABT Guwahati module.
Meanwhile, in a major move taken by the Bongaigaon district administration, an order has been issued to demolish another madrassa situated in Assam's Jogighopa area in Bongaigaon.
This comes after the arrest of Mufti Hafizur Rahman, who was a teacher at the Madrassa and carried out jihadi activities from the premises of the religious institution.
The eviction notice was dispatched by the Bongaigaon administration after the Goalpara police arrested the Mufti.
Several bulldozers were seen conducting the demolition of the Markazul MaArif Quariayana Madrasa located at Kabaitary Part-IV village, which falls under Jogighopa Police Station. The Bongaigaon district administration deployed security personnel in force in the area.
This is the third madrasa to be razed by the Assam government following the arrests of 37 persons including the Imam and madrasa teachers on charges of being linked to terror outfits Al Qaida in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).
There were reports that some militants disguised as religious teachers had sneaked into the state and silently gone ahead with their subversive and anti-state activities.
