Sri Lankan govt bans two terror outfits NTJ, JMI following serial blasts

DD News
Srilankan President has decided to ban the National Thawheed Jamath (NJT) and Jamathei Milathu Ibrahim (JMI)  two of the fundamentalist terror networks linked with last Sunday attacks. The organizations have been banned under emergency provisions, which were imposed on Monday after the attacks.

A press statement said all activities of those organizations as well as their property will be seized by the government. It added that steps are been taken to ban other extremist organizations operating in Sri Lanka, under emergency regulations.

NJT was earlier named behind suicide attacks last Sunday which killed over 250 people including 42 foreigners. Over 100 suspects linked to the organizations have been taken into custody as a countrywide crackdown on the organizations continue. 

Mass prayers in churches remain cancelled today due to security threats. Fifteen people including six terrorists were killed in a raid at the hideout of Islamic State terrorist group in Nintavur of the eastern province on Friday night, for which ISIS took the responsibility. The banned organization said in a statement that three of its members were involved in a fight with security forces.

The gunfight during the raid is suspected to have injured the wife and daughter of Moulvi Zahran Hashmi, considered to be the main perpetrator behind the attacks.
