Bangalore Crime: Suspected terrorist set to join Al Qaeda arrested

Bangalore:  A suspected terrorist was apprehended in Bangalore, and early investigations revealed that the Assamese youth planned to join Al Qaeda and offered support for waging jihad against the country, police sources said on Monday.

Following a tip-off about the presence of the suspected terrorist identified as Akthar Hussain from Assam, sleuths from the Central Crime Branch's (CCB) Special Wing, in collaboration with the Internal Security Division (ISD) and Intelligence Wing, raided a residence in the city's Tilaknagar locality on Sunday night.

 Apart from Hussain, four other people were held. He was first accused of working for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group. According to the police, Hussain spoke online with worldwide terror organisations via social media platforms such as Facebook and Telegram.
As per reports, Hussain was approached by the organisations and was intending to travel to Kashmir to meet with Al Qaeda operatives. 

Hussain worked as a food delivery kid until late at night and was always silent, they noted. The Bangalore police department has yet to issue an official statement about the matter.

According to police sources, a FIR has been filed at the Tilaknagar police station, and the five people are being questioned. Talib Hussain, a member of the Hizbul Mujahideen terror group, was apprehended in Bangalore.

The debate of Bangalore being a sleeper cell for terrorists and anti-national forces came to the forefront with Hussain's arrest.
