Revealing the activities carried out by JuM, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Director-General Yogesh Chander Modi on Monday pointed out that the terror group was carrying out its iniquitous activities under the name of Bangladeshi migrants while addressing the chiefs of anti-terror squads (ATS) and special task forces (STF) of all the states.

YC Modi, a 1984 batch Indian Police Service officer of the Assam-Meghalaya cadre, announced that a list of 25 most wanted JuM terrorists has been prepared and circulated among the states to track them.

"We are fully geared up and prepared to meet the challenge of such terror groups with the help of all the states. We are a central investigating agency and are coordinating with other similar agencies at the national as well as international level to tackle terrorism," said Modi.
