Islamic State planning attacks in India after terrorising Bangladesh's Dhaka

New Delhi : After carrying out a barbaric attack in a Dhaka cafe last Friday, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) is planning to target India.

Intelligence agencies have issued an alert, which says that the ISIS is looking for a chance to launch an attack on India.

The strengthening of the ISIS base in Bangladesh is a cause of major concern for India.

A call intercept of ISIS terrorists reveals a militant as saying: “A strong base in Bangladesh will help ISIS carry out terrorist strikes in India.”

The alert also mentions that Bangladesh-based terrorist group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) has set up terror infrastructure in West Bengal and Assam.

The JMB is also recruiting from selected pockets of these states, reads the alert, a copy of which is with Zee Media. So far in the year, four people have been arrested from West Bengal for suspected links with the ISIS.

As per intelligence inputs, people associated with JMB and the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami, Bangladesh’s largest Islamist political party, are associated with the ISIS.

Radicalisation through social media has become a headache for governments across the world. Most of the seven young Gulshan cafe attackers had gone missing several months ago in Bangladesh.

Recently, an Islamic State module was busted in Hyderabad, ringing an alarm bell for authorities.

All the suspects — aged between 20 and 42 — were allegedly plotting bomb attacks and indiscriminate firing at shopping malls and crowded places in Hyderabad, NIA sources had said.

Reports had said that the accused were allegedly planning to target places of worship, information technology corridors, and police stations.
