|HT|


The crackdown against illegal madrasas in Assam by the state government continues to take place as another private Islamic seminary was demolished on Wednesday over alleged links to terror outfits Al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and Bangladesh-based Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).


Hafizur Rahman, a teacher of the madrasa, was arrested on August 26 based on information provided by two imams nabbed in neighbouring Goalpara district on August 21.

This was the third private madrasa to be razed this month for alleged jihadi links.


“We started the process of demolishing the madrasa located at Kabaitari on Wednesday morning following recovery of incriminating documents with links to jihadi groups during a raid carried out on Tuesday,” Swapnaneel Deka, superintendent of police Bongaigaon, said.


He informed that a notice regarding the demolition was issued on Tuesday and nearly 200 students of the madrasa were sent back to their homes or relocated to other nearby institutions.
