Indian intelligence agencies are discounting the possibility of Islamic State's involvement in the recent killings of an Italian and a Japanese national in Bangladesh, says the ' Times of India' newspaper.The report, quoting Indian intelligence officials, said they suspect the involvement of Jamaat-e-Islami hardliners and see the murderous attacks as a ploy to draw attention of the Western nations to the "targeting of its top leaders for 1971 war crimes without proper trial"."The hanging of some top Jamaat-e-Islami  leaders may be due in the near future; one of the most prominent leaders on the death row is Motiur Rahman Nizami, whose appeal is now being heard by the Supreme Court," a senior officer of the Indian intelligence establishment pointed out.
