Earlier in the day, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said there was a need to strengthen intelligence in Assam in view of the growing Muslim population in the border districts.

Meghalaya is on high alert despite detection of terror modules in Assam. It is keeping a close watch on movement in and out of the state as it is proving to be a “hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism”, according to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

“We will keep a watch and the police will ensure that the grassroots intelligence network is maintained,” Meghalaya CM Conrad K Sangma said.

“To ensure that there is no infiltration or any other concern, the general procedure is movement of people within the state and within. Most thanas (police stations) are giving information at the local level.

Sangma added that the state government has received this information and is monitoring it. Asked about the international and international border, the CM said, “We will review the situation and take action whenever necessary.”

Earlier in the day, Sarma said there was a need to strengthen the intelligence network of the state police in Assam in view of the growing Muslim population in districts bordering Bangladesh. He also said that the number of police stations should be increased in these districts.

He made the comments after six Bangladeshi nationals belonging to Ansar-ul-Islam entered Assam to teach youths, and one of them was arrested when police raided the first module in Barpeta in March. Revealed?
