Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], August 6 (ANI): After the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) nabbed a Bangladeshi national from Muzaffarnagar on Sunday morning, the Additional Director General (ADG) of UP said that the main suspect is still absconding. Speaking at a press conference, Anand Kumar, ADG Law and Order in Uttar Pradesh said that the arrested Bangladeshi national, named Abdullah, has revealed that a person named Faizan is the one running the mission. "He named quite a few people during inspection and named a guy called Faizan. Faizal inspired him to do all this. When we raided Faizan's home, he wasn't there but we found quite a few objectionable objects," he said. Kumar added that all the evidence found in Faizan's house points towards a Bangladesh-based terrorist organization named 'Ansarullah Bangla team'. According to Kumar, this organization helps Bangladeshis enter India illegally and provides them with employment opportunities. He also said that Ansarullah has been banned in Bangladesh. The UP ATS along with Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli police is carrying out an arrest and investigation drive in three districts on the order of Saharanpur Deputy inspector general of police.
