ISIS operative Abu Musa attacks judge during court hearing

Prime News, National (Kolkata), February 4:- West Bengal’s lone ISIS member Mohammed Musiruddin alias Abu Musa, who was arrested in 2017 for his alleged role in the Burdwan blast, on Tuesday (February 4) attacked a Calcutta session court judge during a hearing.

According to reports, Musa got furious during the hearing and hurled his shoe towards the judge Prasenjit Biswas. However, the shoe missed its target and instead hit a lawyer at the court. Musa, who has been in the NIA custody, has been lodged in the Presidency Jail in Kolkata.

Following the incident, the NIA has filed a petition seeking his trial through video conferencing.

Musa has a history of aggressive behaviour and has so far attacked several people inside the jail. In January this year, Musa attacked head warden Amal Karmakar with a PVC pipe that was fitted to the outlet of a basin inside cell no. 7. The on-duty head warder sustained severe injuries on his head and was rushed to the jail hospital for the treatment.

In another incident that took place in 2017, Musa had attacked a warden of Alipore central jail and slashed his throat with an iron nail.

Musa was arrested in 2016 after CID received a tip-off about his presence at the Burdwan station. He was travelling in the Howrah-Viswabharati Fast Passenger train at the time of the arrest. Police had also recovered a knife and a firearm from his possession. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
