While Nur Hussain, convicted with the murder of 7 persons at Narayangunj in Bangladesh and arrested later on along with his two accomplices namely Zaman and Selim from Kaikhali, Kolkata, is reeling in a judicial custody of Bengal now, the state is afflicted once more with the arrest of Zahid Hussain, an IM (Indian Mujahideen) operative hailing from Bangladesh and arrested from Kolkata railway station by the Special Task Force of Calcutta Police. It has been learnt, Zahid Hussain belongs to the Darbhanga module of Indian Mujahideen, a banned outfit in India maintaining strong links to dreaded Pakistani terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba. In accordance with sources in intelligence department, Zahid Hussain worked as a courier regarding the blast at German Bakery in Pune on February 13, 2010. He supplied explosives there single-handedly. And these arrests have debunked the perpetual abnegation of illegal infiltration from Bangladesh, both by indigenous administration and Bangladeshi governance.
Zahid Hussain (age 40) crossed the Petrapole-Benapole border checkpoint in the India-Bangladesh international border at Bangaon in North 24 Paraganas district and reached Sealdah railway station in Kolkata from Bangaon by train. Zahid went to Kolkata railway station wherefrom he was arrested. He has been learnt to use the same route to render explosives to Pune for the blast. But he didn’t go to Pune; his duty ended with meeting the contact person at Mumbai. Zahid returned to Bangladesh afterward. Special Task Force of STF, incidentally, got hold of Abdul Karim Tunda, explosive expert of Lashkar-e-Taiba, from the Nepal border and top secret facts of Zahid Hussain were learnt from him.
It must be kept in mind that Indian Mujahideen or IM happens to be a home-grown Islamic terrorist group in the realm of India and has been known for hobnobbing with worldwide Muslim terrorist organizations including Al-Qaeda and Haqqani Network through Lashkar-e-Taiba. According to recent researches, Indian Mujahideen happens to be a frontal organization of Lashkar-e-Taiba in India drawing its inspirations from the zeal to create an Islamic state and putting Sharia Law into practice in India by means of indiscriminate violence, if not more. When Zahid Hussain was arrested, a large number of fake currency notes were also recovered from him propelling Indian intelligence agencies to concentrate on several linked sections of mounting terrorism. If sources are believed, the arrest has been a major breakthrough as regards investigations on terrorism in India.
Police sources have been found to state, "During interrogation of Yasin Bhatkal last year, who is a mastermind of various bomb blasts in Pune, Hyderabad and Banglore, he had revealed that he had procured the RDX from a person from Bangladesh." "After the arrest of Hussain, the ATS has been asked to probe all the counterfeit currency note cases registered with Maharashtra police, especially since 2010. Hussain is in touch with some wanted IM operatives."
The blast at German Bakery in Pune on February 13, 2010 traumatized the entire nation and claimed lives of 17 people including 5 foreign nationals while injuring 58 others severely. The arrest of Zahid Hussain will unearth details remaining hidden up till now and it has proved that Kolkata has become hub of Islamic terrorism. It can mature and go on without fear thanks to lackadaisical administration and rising Muslim appeasement in Bengal.
