Four Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami activists were arrested by the Hyderabad Police Commissioner’s Task Force (South Zone). One of them
is suspected to have helped those involved in the Dilsukhnagar twin blasts of February 13, 2013, to escape from Hyderabad.
Cops arrested Mohammed Nasir, a Bangladeshi who migrated to Pakistan and came to India, Faizal Mohamoud, Bangladeshi national, Joynal Abedin, Bangladeshi national, and Zia Ur Rahman, a Myanmar national, who are not only illegal immigrants but are also suspected to be activists or sympathizers of Huji. They were arrested along with two local agents, Mohammed Masood Ali Khan, a resident of Chanchalguda and Sohail Parvez Khan, resident of Balapur, Cyberabad.
Cops seized Voter ID Cards, Aadhar Cards and Indian passports and driving licences which they obtained by submitting fake or forged documents. Sources in the Crime Central Station’s detective department said that it was 19-year-old Zia-ur-Rahman who helped his namesake Zia-ur-Rahman alias Waqas, a Pakistani national, to escape from Hyderabad after the twin blasts at Dilsukhnagar on February 13, 2013. “This youth had come to India four or five years ago and lived in West Bengal, Bihar, UP, Haryana, and some other places. He developed contacts among sympathizers every where and arranged for safe channels for Waqas to escape from Hyderabad to West Bengal and from there to Bangladesh.
Zia came to Hyderabad in March this year and was living in Jalpally. We are still reconstructing his life in India and what he did in Hyderabad and joining the dots,’’ an official said. Waqas alias Zia Ur Rahman was arrested by a team of Delhi Police and NIA from Ajmer in April 2014 in connection with twin blasts at Dilsukhnagar.
Sources said that the Bangladeshi national Mohammed Nasir, while living in Pakistan came in contact with his distant relative Abdul
Jabbar who is also of Bangladeshi origin and migrated to Pakistan. Jabbar is a staunch supporter and activist of Huji. After a few years
of living in Pakistan, Jabbar went back to Bangladesh and is currently residing at Coxbazar. “Abdul Jabbar indoctrinated Nasir with
terrorist ideology and sent him to India for furtherance of unlawful activities,’’ an official said. Accordingly Mohammed Nasir intruded
into India through Indo-Bangla border in 2010 and stayed in various places. Finally, he came to Hyderabad and was staying at Jalpally,
“In Hyderabad Nasir came into contact with Sohail Parvez Khan, a teacher, who introduced him to Masood Ali Khan, owner of a
photocopying shop at Chanchalguda. During this time Nasir also received the illegal 2 immigrants of Bangladesh, and one from Myanmar
and harboured them in the residence of Masood Ali Khan at Chanchalguda and arranged Voter ID Cards, Aadhar Cards by fraudulent means to the illegal immigrants and also arranged Indian Passports to the illegal immigrants by falsely showing the residential address of Masood Ali Khan at Chanchalguda,’’ the official said. So far Masood Ali Khan has arranged Voter ID Cards, Aadhar Cards, Indian Passports to 15 illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar. Cops seized four Indian passports acquired by using forged documents, two Bangladeshi passports, over a dozen cell phones, jehadi literature, over 100 different forged and fade identify proof documents like voter cards, birth certificates, passport delivery envelopes, affidavits etc from the four, said T Prabhakar Rao, Joint Commissioner of Police, Detective Department.
