Bangla border starts new Trade. Supply 10 Cows, get 1 Charming Girl.
The latest tip off from Bangladesh border by the intelligence has disclosed that human trafficking to be very specific, women trafficking has become a roaring business. According to them the operation centre for this trafficking is Kolkata. For every 10 cows dispatched to Bangladesh the traffickers get one woman as price for those cows. The women they get are of different age group ranging between 12 to 40 years. Before these women reach their destination at West Asian countries, they are being raped exploited by different customers and in this way the women traffickers earn extra money before they are sent for their ultimate destination. But if the girl is young, beautiful and her physical features are exceptionally good nobody is allowed to touch them. Special care is taken for their security and comfort. These girls/women are taken to the Sheikhs of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Zedda, and different cities of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, UAE etc. They become the victims of brutal sex exploitation and ultimately they succumb to tortures.
This business is very simple. Supply ten cows from this end and get one beautiful your girl from the other end. They say that this kind of barter system business is virtually hassle free. But in the eyes of National Investigation Agency (NIA) things are not that easy. NIA is after it and getting hold of mysterious facts.
The sources in NIA could not estimate the exact number of women trafficked in a week or a month. But they are sure that these women are drawn mainly from Bangladesh and some from the bordering districts of West Bengal. Both Hindus and Muslim women are there and they belong to poor families. In the name of getting good overseas jobs they are being lured. Once they agree, they are trapped in this vicious circle.
While admitting their failure to nab the culprits, the NIA is successful in identifying the ‘King plin’s centre of operation. The sleuths are yet to bust the whole game of operation. But they suspect that the persons involved in terrorist activities are very much involved in this operations.
The latest disclosure by the NIA is that the funding of all terrorist activities in Eastern and North-Eastern Bharat is looked after by one ‘D COMPANY’ and this company is being run by mafia don Dawood Ibrahim. Recently, one of the main culprit of Khagragarh (Burdwan) blast which took place on October 2, 2014, has been arrested. He has admitted that he was the key person who on behalf of JMB (Jamaat-e-Mujahideen, Bangladesh) used to handle the monetary transactions.
He further disclosed that it was the JMB fund that went to Khagragarh through him for manufacturing Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). He further disclosed that he had supplied the funds to the terrorist training camps at Mangalkot and Makimnagar Madrasas run by JMB. Till then it was not clear that who had funded the blast, but now it is clear that besides the money coming from cow
exported to Bangladesh, ‘D’ Company was also a part of it.
NIA sleuths further informed that after October 2, 2014, clandenstine activities of JMB were increased in leaps and bounds. They had engaged all Khariji Madrasas situated in Burdwan, Birbhum and Nadia districrs in Bharat and from Kokrajhar, Nalbari, Barpeta upto whole of North-east Bharat for giving terrorist training.
The IG of NIA, Sanjib Singh said that there are 17 routes through which terrorists and explosives are regularly pouring into different destinations in Bharat. Primarily the sleuths have received information that the Chit Funds of West Bengal started funding the terrorists of JMB. But the fact remains that the funds donated to terrorists of Bangladesh are coming back to West Bengal ruling party. NIA has definite information of this, asserted Sanjib Singh. It said that the modalities of transfer of funds were settled in meeting at a 5Star hotel room at Salt Lake where two ministers of West Bengal Government and one TMC Rajya Sabha member were present. This meeting took place on August 15, 2011.
