Killing a prime minister cannot be farcically so easy

The NIA (National Intelligence Agency of India) is currently holding in its custody several key suspected terrorists who are alleged to have played a role in the terror module. The investigating agency has also said that it is in the process of arresting the other fugitives terrorists who are currently on the run, as reported by various dailies. West Bengal Police and NIA have achieved two major breakthroughs by arresting top commanders of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) including Sajid on Saturday and Amjad Sheikh on Monday. Two key suspects in the Burdwan blast case, Sheikh Kausar and Yusuf Shaikh, were mostly indoctrinating women and training them in bomb-making at two West Bengal madrasas currently under NIA scanner - the Simulia madrasa in Burdwan and Lalgola madrasa in Murshidabad.  The NIA probe had found that the two madrasas were frequented largely by women. "They were indoctrinated to take up jihad and taught the basics of making improvised explosive devices (IEDs)," said a senior official of the security establishment. Meanwhile, the home ministry, acting on a request of the Bangladesh government seeking details of the Burdwan case and JMB plot to use India as a terror base, is preparing a report to be sent to Dhaka through the ministry of external affairs. The NIA on Tuesday submitted the necessary inputs to the home ministry for the dossier. In the report, the central probe agency said around 22 cadres may have been part of the JMB network in India. The number of accused and suspects so far is around 40, of which four, including Razia Bibi and Alima Bibi and one male cadre each from West Bengal and Assam, have been arrested. The network was active in India for last three years, though the two suspects killed in the Burdwan blast on October 2, Subhan Mondal and Shakil Gazi, had rented the Khagragarh house only in July 2014. The house belongs to a Trinamool Congress supporter, but the agencies have not found anything to link him to the terror plot. The JMB modules working in India are believed to have sent 3-4 consignments of 30 bombs each to Bangladesh since 2011. Around 100 more bombs have been unearthed in raids by the West Bengal CID and NIA following the Burdwan blast. "We are still investigating whether all these bombs were meant for transportation to Bangladesh or were to be used locally as well," an official said, adding that the bombs were essentially low-impact IEDs, as per reports.Whatever the true nature of the bombings might be the matter must be thoroughly investigated by the Indian government as it is a vital security concern of both the countries — especially  if the women of the madrasas were being trained to kill the Bangladeshi PM and the Leader of the main opposition party. If the case is such then India must conduct a thorough probe and share the information with our government to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice as the idea of using female bombers is sneaky and would be exceedingly effective is used in practice. One must  remember that two leaders of the  subcontinent died in bomb blasts in recent times — Rajiv Gandhi in 1991 and Benazir Bhutto in 2007. It is not unfathomable that others could be added to that list.We find the whole story farcical. Killing of a prime minister cannot be so easy for just anybody.
