While one module was busted in Barpeta district in lower Assam, the other was in Morigaon district of central Assam. Police said both have links with Bangladesh-based Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT), which is part of Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).

National public broadcaster AIR reported that one of the persons detained was a Madrassa teacher in Assam. The police have seized numerous electronic devices and incriminating documents from detained persons.

Further investigation and operations are being carried out to unearth the linkages and network.
