Kolkata, Feb 9 (IBNS): Acting on a tip off, the Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata Police held a suspected Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) operative linked to 2018 Bodh Gaya explosion from central Kolkata's Sealdah area in the wee hours of Saturday, officials said.

According to reports, the nabbed JMB suspect, Manirul Islam, was a close aide of arrested JMB key operative Kausar Ali alias Boma Mizan who was arrested from Bengaluru earlier in August last year.

The JMB suspect was produced in a city court on Saturday and he was sent to STF custody till Feb 23.

Earlier on Jan 19 last year, a low-intensity bomb exploded just hours after Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama finished a sermon in Bihar's Bodh Gaya and security personnel later recovered two live bombs in boxes from gate Number 4 of the Mahabodhi temple and near a Sri Lankan monastery.
