Murshidabad: Two members of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) have been arrested from West Bengal's Murshidabad district, in a joint operation by a team of Special Task Force (STF) and Murshidabad Police.
Explosive materials were seized from the arrested JMB members, police said.
The arrested JMB members have been identified as Moshibur Rahman (35) alias Farooque and Rahul Amin (26) alias Saifullah. Both are residents of Murshidabad.
