GUWAHATI, Nov 8 � Jamaat-ul-Mujaheedin Bangladesh (JUM) member Sujina Begum, who was arrested in Guwahati on the night of Thursday last, was produced in the Court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kamrup today and remanded to police custody for 14 days.
Police sources told The Assam Tribune that Begum, wife of the head of the Assam module of JMB, Sahanur Alam, was arrested in connection with a case registered in the Special Operations Unit (SOU) of the Assam Police.
Begum was trained at Simulia Madrassa in West Bengal by activists of the JMB and she was actively involved in the activities of the outfit. The job assigned to her in Assam was to spread jihad through women and she was specially trained for the job. She undertook month-long courses at least three times and it is also learnt that several other women from the State received similar training in the madrassa. However, Sahanur is still at large and efforts are on to nab him as his arrest is vital for getting information about the activities of the JMB in the State.
Meanwhile, teams of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) are also questioning Begum as the case is to be handed over to the national agency shortly because of its inter-state ramifications.
