Local police have put on display photographs of wanted Indian Mujahideen (IM) operatives, carrying a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh each on their heads.
The posters, carrying the photographs of 12 alleged IM operatives, were released by National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with a case (RC 06/2012) lodged in New Delhi for terrorist activities and conspiracy for waging war against the government of India.
Apart from IM mastermind Ahmed Siddibappa alias Yasin Bhatkal, the posters also carry names and photographs of two absconding terror suspects having links in Bihar.
The first in the list is Mohammad Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, son of Mohammad Waseem Akhtar, a native of Maniarpur village in Muktapur police station area of Samastipur district. Another IM operative who figures in the list is Amir Reza Khan alias Parvez alias Rizwan, son of Ishaqe Ali Khan, a resident of Islam Lane under Beniakpur police station in Kolkata. Amir's permanent address is Maheyan village under Mohanpur police station in Gaya district of Bihar.
The posters of wanted terror suspects, released by NIA, are meant for display at public places at Darbhanga, Madhubani and Samastipur districts. However, given the limited numbers of posters, priority was being accorded to put them on display at police stations and respective block headquarters in the district.
Earlier, NIA sleuths had arrested Mohammad Danish Ansari, an alleged terror suspect from Darbhanga on January 21. Danish, son of Mohammad Zafeer Ansari, is a resident of Chakjohara locality in Laheriasarai police station area.
Danish was wanted for his alleged association with Bhatkal. He was also wanted by the NIA in connection with the case lodged in New Delhi, sources said.
Darbhanga senior superintendent of police (SSP) Upendra Kumar Sharma said intelligence agencies had earlier tracked down IM terror suspects' link to this district in north Bihar.
