Guwahati: In what has been the most worrying development for the security agencies in India, the Islamic State (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) modules are found to have been publishing propaganda material in Bengali language on a large scale in Bangladesh.

Informing that earlier ISIS has been publishing its propaganda material  in Arabian, English, French, German and Turkish only, security sources told this newspaper that of late they have noticed ISIS propaganda material published in Bengali as well which is highly disturbing for the security agencies in India. Though, it was circulated in Bangladesh so far, security sources said that it can be read and understood upto West Bengal and Northeastern states of India.

 

Security sources said that they have also come across some of the video of the ISIS which had the mention of Assam. Pointing out that these factors are alarming, security sources said that South East Asian countries have always been on the radar of ISIS.

Clarifying that India is yet to assess the threat perception arising out of Dhaka attack, security sources, however, said that ministry of home affairs has directed the states bordering Bangladesh to take some specific steps to check the possible attempt of radical elements to cross over to India for shelter.

Pointing out that there was no reason to be panicky, security sources said that immediate concern for India is to stop the exit of radical elements active in neighbouring Bangladesh to India.

Informing that Bangladesh has already started mounting heavy pressure on radical groups responsible of recent killings, sources said that there is every possibility of these radical forces now trying to cross over to India to escape the onslaught of security forces in Bangladesh.
