Guwahati: Following the arrest of Mufti Mustafa who was running a madrassa named Jamiul Huda Madrassa at Moirabari in Morigaon district, for allegedly having links with Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT), Bangladesh chapter of Al Qaida in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), several madrassas have come under police radar.

On Friday, director general of police (DGP) of the state, Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta told media that state police have been scanning several other madrassas against whom several inputs were received.

“A few are under scanner. Both registered and unregistered madrassas should abstain from any anti national activities. Police are on alert and any activity of radicalizing youth will not be tolerated,” he said.  

Since March, Assam police have arrested at least 33 persons for allegedly having links to ABT.

“Some Bangladeshi nationals are on the run. But so far we have manage to thwart all their acts,” the DGP added.

Police investigation has already revealed that at least two madrassas were being funded by ABT. Mustafa was an important financial conduit of the recently busted ABT module in the state, sources said.
