“It was in 2011 that he first organised all inmates with the terror tag. They selected him their ‘Emir’ in Presidency central jail. He was selected by the LeT, HuJi (Harkat-ul-Jihad al Islami) and all others for his education and leadership capabilities,” said a senior officer of the Kolkata Police.
According to jail sources, there were 12 high-security inmates with the terror tag in Presidency central jail.
“He was the most educated among them. He led a simple life behind bars. This impressed others,” said a jail officer.
