New Delhi, May 5: A three-member high powered team of tiol Investigation Agency (NIA) has reached Bangladesh to investigate into different angles of anti-India activities being carried out by the terrorists based in the neighbouring country.

The team led by NIA Inspector General Sanjib Kumar Singh would be in Dhaka till Wednesday. During their stay in Dhaka, the NIA team will exchange information about terrorists with their Bangladesh counterparts.

“During their stay they will not only probe the Burdwan blasts, they will also try to further strengthen the cooperation between the two countries to curb militancy and terrorism,” said a government official. The Burdwan blasts have been linked to the Bangladesh-based Jamaat-ul Mujahiddin Bangladesh (JMB), which plans to overthrow the Hasi regime.

India has earlier requested Bangladesh government to cooperate with their investigations, which was accepted by Dhaka. An agreement was reached to share intelligence and support each other.

The NIA has already submitted a chargesheet in the blasts case, which lists a number of Bangladeshi militants. “Some of them are yet to be arrested. NIA agents will discuss with their Bangladeshi counterparts on how they can be arrested,” the official said adding "their presence would definitely strengthen the intelligence cooperation between the two countries."
