Amit Shah instructs NIA to investigate Lashkar and Al Qaeda modules in West Bengal

New Delhi : Union Home Minister Amit Shah is in West Bengal on a two-day visit. The Home Minister held a meeting with senior officials of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) yesterday. During this, he took a report regarding the progress of the investigation of terrorist modules in Bengal. He asked the NIA to trace the network of terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Al Qaeda across the border.

Shah, along with NIA officials as well as DIG Deepak Kumar, sought details of the recent cases. In September, NIA busted a Lashkar module from Baduria in North 24 Parganas. In November, a “Pakistan sponsored module” of Al Qaeda was busted.

At the meeting, Shah said that radical Islamic groups also want to know about the Popular Front of India (PFI) involvement in recent incidents. He asked NIA officials to monitor the movement of PFI members in the state. According to a media report, the Enforcement Directorate conducted a nationwide raid on the PFI’s premises this month. Its offices in Murshidabad and Kolkata were also searched. While many states have asked the Ministry of Home Affairs to ban PFI, no decision has been taken yet.

After the NIA meeting, Amit Shah visited Swami Vivekananda’s birthplace. Here, after paying tribute, he said that Muslim people should think about whether Islamic terrorism helped them or destroyed their credibility.

Amit Shah had lunch at a farmer’s house in Balijuri village in East Midnapore on Saturday. Earlier he addressed a rally which is part of BJP’s outreach program among farmers. In the evening with BJP’s Bengal in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya and state BJP president Dilip Ghosh, he met the party’s state officials along with the newly inducted members at a hotel in New Town.
