Assam tightens internal security after fatal Dhaka attack
North-Eastern states like Assam have tightened its internal security measures after the dreaded Dhaka attack that killed at least twenty people including an Indian girl. The Indian authorities identified that the Bodoland Terrorist Areas District is the most vulnerable region in the state of Assam, which saw several communal tensions in the recent past. Over 100 people had been killed by the anti-Bangladesh forces alleging illegal migration in 2012 riot in BTAD. Since then, several fundamentalist organisations are intentionally injecting hatred among the minority youth for moulding them to avenge the communal riot. As per report, the extremists were running several arm camps in the BTAD regions to train weapons and martial arts. They had even showed videos of 2012 rite and grievances of displaced population in order to evoke hatred.
Recently, nearly thirty five people had been arrested in the state for suspected terror link with Bangladeshi fundamentalist terror groups. The authorities had busted around two such camps posing like martial arts schools and ceased several handmade weapons. Reports say that, the state government has directed all respective authorities to strengthen the security measures. It is said that the inter-force coordination will be utilised to materialise effective communication network and advanced security procedures. The central intelligence bureau has reportedly warned that Jammu and Kashmir, Assam, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, and West Bengal are vulnerable to ISIS terror attack. Border Security Forces were reportedly directed to pay high vigilance in Into-Bangladesh border in Meghalaya and Tripura.
