“The cadres are Bangladesh nationals and were illegally staying in India without passports. They had obtained Indian documents in a bid to spread terror in Assam. Incriminating documents, including Indian Aadhaar and PAN cards, suspected to be fake and fraudulently obtained, were recovered and seized from them,” a police official said.

The cadres had come to Guwahati with an aim to mobilise and radicalise gullible Muslim youths of Assam and India to join the terror outfit and indulge in terror acts.

“The cadres were arrested in connection with SOU (Special Operations Unit) PS case number 1/2024 under Sections 120(B)/121/122/468/471 of IPC, read with Sections 10/13 of UA(P) Act; Section 12 of The Passport Entry To India Act, 1920 and Section 14 of Foreigners Act, 1946,” the official said.
