After arresting six suspected Al-Qaeda militants from Murshidabad, the NIA (National Investigation Agency) received multiple leads.

According to reports, the NIA has launched another operation based on the information received after the interrogation. However, the seventh suspected militant Munna Sarkar has absconded.

The officers have been interrogating the militants at the NIA office in Bidhannagar from Sunday (September 20). Meanwhile, the state is likely to send the six militants to Delhi for face-to-face interrogation with captured militants in Kerala. Investigators speculate that details of Al Qaeda in the Indian sub-continent will be known after the investigation.
