Guwahati, May 26: Admitting that penetration of jihadi network into Assam is a matter of serious concern, DGP Khagen Sarma today said the police is keeping a close watch on their activities. “The investigation into the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen (JMB) network in the State is still on. We have done our homework. We must admit they had planned big, but fortutely the police could nip the problem in the bud,” Sarma said. The DGP said some of the youths who had joined the JMB have now “come back”. “Many have realized what it actually is and so have come back,” he said. Pointing to the capacity of the JMB which exploded hundreds of bombs in Bangladesh in a single day, Sarma said, “Security forces have recovered huge caches of bombs in West Bengal. We also found a cache of bombs in Assam. One cannot deny their capability to strike.”
