Kolkata, Feb 23 (IBNS): The Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata Police on Thursday nabbed an active member of Bangladeshi terrorist group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) from Dhulian in West Bengal's Murshidabad district in connection with Bodh Gaya explosion, officials said.

According to reports, from Feb 1 to Feb 5, city police's STF arrested at least 5 JMB activists from Murshidabad and seized firearms, ammunition and explosives from their possessions.

"While interrogating the five arrested JMB men, we came to know about another activist of the Bangladesh-based terrorist group, Nur Alam Momin, who was one of the key conspirators of Bodh Gaya explosion and our personnel arrested him from Murshidabad," a senior official of STF told IBNS.

However, the JMB member was produced in a Kolkata court on Friday and was sent to 10-day STF custody.
