NEW DELHI, Jan 28 � The NIA today arrested four people who were suspected to be hardcore members of the banned Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) terror outfit and who were also alleged recruiters, taking to 16 the number of people it has nabbed in its probe in the Burdwan blast case, reports PTI.

The four � Dalim Sheikh alias Faijul Hoque Sheik, Motiur Rehman alias Noor Alam, Habibur Rehman and Ghiyasuddin Munshi � were arrested from different parts of West Bengal.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) took over the case from West Bengal Police few days after the explosion after international links started surfacing. The blast in Burdwan took place inside a house on October 2 last year, leaving one person dead and another seriously injured.

Investigations have found that improvised explosive devices (IED) were being fabricated in the house and later smuggled to neighbouring Bangladesh.

Giving details about today�s arrest, NIA claimed in a statement that Dalim Sheikh was �full time member� of JMB and was involved in setting up bases and hideouts, raising and collecting funds, radicalising youths and providing tactical and material support to their senior Bangladeshi members of JMB in expanding their network to India.
