Three More Held In Hojai For Hizbul Mujahideen Links


In its ongoing operation to pick out every person connected with Kashmir-based Islamist terror group Hizbul Mujahideen, Assam Police on Tuesday arrested three more persons from Hojai district. This has taken the number of persons arrested since Friday to seven.

SP (Hojai) Ankur Jain said, “We are now trying to dig out the root of Hizbul Mujahideen in Assam. So far, we have arrested seven persons and each one of them is being interrogated by our SIT. We have the information and all we have to do is to join the dots.”

The spate of arrests took place after UP Police and NIA alerted the state about Assam’s connection with the Hizbul Mjahideen following the arrest of a trained cadre, Qamar-uz Zaman, in Kanpur last Thursday. Qamar-uz hails from Jamunamukh in Hojai district. Among the seven arrested persons is Qamar-uz’s elder brother Saiful Islam. Read More
