India issues Rs25,000 bounty for suspected Bangladeshi terrorist

Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has issued a lookout notice for Tauheed Ur Rehman Alias Fazr Ali, a Bangladeshi citizen allegedly linked to militant group Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).

ATS began the search for Tauheed following the arrest of Abdullah Al-Mamon, a terrorist linked to ABT who was arrested by UP ATS from Kutesara village in Muzaffarnagar on August 6.

The police department reports: “Two others, Faizan and Tauheed, were identified following information from Abdullah and examination of other items including terror literature which were seized during his arrest.”

Tauheed, a resident of Chuadanga district, carries a bounty of Rs 25,000 on his head. He was reported to have been seen in Deoband, Saharanpur several times. According to a statement of UP ATS, Tauheed is a master of disguise and is an expert in weapon operations. He is skilled in martial arts too.

On the other hand, police has unable to track Faizan who helped Abdullah secure forged documents.

“Some local media outlets incorrectly identified Faizan and published his pictures as well. We do not have his complete identity and credentials,” said Asim Arun, inspector general of ATS.

Terrorism, Research & Analysis Consortium (Trac) reports ABT is an al Qaeda-inspired Islamic extremist group in Bangladesh. It aims to radicalise Bangladeshi youth, encouraging active participation in a local jihad and controlling areas.

The Trac website also reports the group uses cyberspace and mosques extensively in propagating jihadist ideology and guiding terror attacks.

On August 12, 2013, ABT leader Mufti Jasimuddin Rahmani was arrested from Barguna along with 30 members.
