Sanaul went missing when he was 14 years old  and his family presumed that he had died but  in 2009 intelligence agents told that Sanaul  was alive and working for terrorist organisations Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and al-Qaida.

Intelligence agencies  arrested three suspects of the al Qaeda  .Jafar Masood (UP), Abdul Rahman from Odisha Cuttack and Mohammad Asif, 41, from Delhi were arrested  . The two men are part of a module of the terror group’s Indian sub-continent wing operating out of the country, police claimed.

The suspected Al Qaeda operative Abdur Rehman had received money in his bank account from London.

The Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Police Commissioner Rajendra Prasad Sharma said, Rehman had received a substantial amount from London this year and it is under examination.

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has questioned the ‘intentions’ of the Modi government to defer farm laws by one and a half year.

“The BJP government has extended a proposal to defer the implementation of the farm laws for the next one and a half year. The move is illogical and without any rationale. Deferring implementation of the law will not change the consequences that will follow once the law is introduced,” he said.

Akhilesh further said, “By deferring implementation of the law, the BJP government is trying to counter popular public sentiment which is growing in favour of the agitating farmers and against the law makers. The government will eventually implement the laws before the elections in 2024 to benefit the capitalists.”

The SP president has directed the party leaders and workers to dedicate their Republic Day celebrations to farmers who are protesting against the new farm laws. He asked party men to reach the venues where Indian flag will be unfurled at the tehsil level on tractors carrying the Tricolour.

He said that by taking out tractor rallies, the SP workers and leaders will only reassert their support to the agitating farmers.

Akhilesh also attacked the ruling BJP for the delay in clearing cane dues of farmers, increase in power tariff and raids by power department officials on farmers for recovery of power dues.
