UP ATS arrests 3 illegal Bangladeshi immigrants on suspicion of terror links
Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) today busted a fake Aadhaar card racket in Lucknow and arrested three Bangladeshi youth who are living illegally in India.
The three accused apprehended by ATS are brothers and were identified as Mohammad Imran, Rajiduddin and Mohammad Firdaus. The trio was arrested near Charbag railway station in Lucknow. On questioning them, they noticed something suspicious and arrested them. The ATS also recovered fake Aadhaar cards from their possession.
The ATS is probing if the three have links with any terror group. The three came under the scanner of police forces after the ATS received information that they had fled from a madrasa in Deoband, Saharanpur, in a suspicious manner.
On August 6, the ATS arrested a terror suspect, Abdullah-Al-Mamon, from Kutesara village in Muzaffarnagar district on early Sunday morning.
The ATS claimed that Abdullah stayed in Deoband also and was in constant touch with students from Bangladesh and other Islamic countries studying in Darul Uloom Deoband, the world renowned Islamic centre.
On interrogation, Mamon confessed that there were others in the gang following which a search was on the other members.
