Dhaka: The terrorist organization ISIS is engaged in strengthening its roots in Bangladesh. According to the intelligence agencies of Bangladesh, the Bangladesh wing of ISIS may announce its new wing before Eid-ul-Azha, which will be named ‘Bengal Ulayat’.
Police headquarters has received intelligence that this new wing of ISIS may target police establishments, government installations and foreign missions or embassies in the country before Eid-ul-Azha on 1 August 2020. In view of this, several units like Dhaka Metropolitan Police, Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC), Anti-Terrorism Unit and Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have been put on high alert.
Conspiracy to do something big
A senior intelligence unit official said that we have received inputs that ISIS is planning to carry out some major terrorist activities while announcing its new wing. Keeping this in mind, we have alerted all our units including our special unit and are taking all precautionary steps.
Telegram channel is silent
However, bungalow ISIS-linked telegram channels such as Al Mursalat and At Tamkin, which convey messages and announcements related to the wing, have been inactive since March this year. For the last four months, no posts have been seen on their behalf.
