West Bengal STF had arrested the terrorist of Bangladesh’s J-u-M Ejaz Ahmed from Pathan Toli locality under Buniyadganj police station area in Manpur block area in the district on August 26. Besides Ejaz Ahmed, two absconding terrorists- Moti Ahmed and Arif Raza, reportedly natives of West Bengal, were suspected of having links with serial bomb blasts, which had taken place inside Mahabodhi Temple premises at Bodh Gaya in 2013. The absconding terrorists were spreading their tentacles in the district by posing as hawkers selling clothes. UNI
