Assamese website editor, a terrorist in disguise


A terrorist named Dhruba Jyoti Deka, who has been using the disguise of an website named Times of Assam has been running ant-India activities by joining hands with Myanmar-based Maoist terrorist groups as well as Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), a jihadist outfit run by Rohingyas. He also has been openly proclaiming as an agent of Pakistani ISI.

According to information, Dhruba Jyoti Deka was working a a key comrade of Paresh Baruah, fugitive kingpin of United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA). Later Baruah ceased relations with Deka as he was stealing cash from both Paresh Baruah and ULFA members. As being ousted from the circle of Paresh Baruah, Deka succeeded in establishing connections with Pakistani spy agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) by using his identity of being the husband of a Muslim woman. It may be mentioned here that, Deka’s wife is Muslim who hails from a radicalized Muslim family.

Blitz correspondent has succeeded in extracting lots of information from Dhruba Jyoti Deka by concealing his identity. Deka told our correspondent that he has been regularly visiting Jamalpur district in Bangladesh and holding meetings with Rohingyas as well as members of a notorious jihadist outfit named Ansar Al Islam.

On December 20, 2021, US Department of State announced reward for information on the murder of Avijit Roy and attack on his wife Rafida Bonya Ahmed, both citizen of the United States of America. In the reward announcement, US Department of State said:

The US Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service, through its Rewards for Justice (RFJ) office, is offering a reward for information on the terrorist attack in Dhaka, Bangladesh that left US citizen Avijit Roy dead and his wife, Rafida Bonya Ahmed, seriously injured.

The Secretary of State has authorized a reward of up to US$5 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction in any country of anyone involved in the murder of Roy and the attack on Ahmed.

On February 26, 2015, Roy and Ahmed, both Bangladesh-born US citizens, were visiting Dhaka to attend a book fair when they were attacked by assailants with machetes.  Roy was killed and Ahmed survived with critical injuries.

This investigation remains open, and we are seeking information that will assist law enforcement agencies in bringing to justice the perpetrators of this heinous terrorist attack. A total of six individuals were charged, tried, and convicted in Bangladesh. Two of the convicted conspirators, Syed Ziaul Haque (aka Major Zia) and Akram Hussain were tried in absentia and remain at large.

Two related groups have claimed responsibility. Ansarullah Bangla Team, an al-Qa’ida-inspired terrorist group based in Bangladesh, claimed responsibility for the attack.  Shortly thereafter, Asim Umar, the now-deceased leader of al-Qa’ida in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), posted a widely circulated video claiming that AQIS followers were responsible for the attack on Roy and Ahmed.

In 2016, the Department of State designated AQIS as a Foreign Terrorist Organization under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, and a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order 13224, which provides authority to sanction terrorists and those who support terrorists or terrorist acts.

Dhruba Jyoti Deka involved in drug smuggling and trafficking on Rohingyas

For many months, Dhruba Jyoti Deka has been actively involved with narco-trafficking rackets within India-Myanmar border while he also is helping Rohingyas in illegally entering Indian territory and hide under his supervision. According to another source, Dhruba Jyoti Deka is also involved in circulation of counterfeit Indian currency bills, which he receives from his ISI counterpart in Myanmar.

Times of Assam, a suspicious website

Following publication of an investigative report titled ‘Indian journalist maintains relations with Prabhakaran and LTTE’, Dhruba Jyoti Deka published at least 3 articles by illegally using the name of internationally acclaimed multi-award-winning anti-militancy journalist and editor of Blitz, Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury as the author of those contents, although such contents were never written by Mr. Choudhury. Most interestingly, all of these articles though were posted recently, Dhruba Jyoti Deka published those with backdates. Blitz editor has already pressed complaint against Deka with competent authorities.

It may be mentioned here that, Times of Assam is an illegal publication without any office of contact number. The only information about this illegal publication is available on its CONTACT page, where it states: “Times of Assam, Rajgarh Road, Rajgarh, Guwahati, 781005, India”.

According to ABOUT page of this illegal website, Dhruba Jyoti Deka claims himself as “Former Journalist & a Column writer of prominent daily newspapers AJI, Natoon Somoy, Natood Din and Adinor Sombad”. There also are few few more people such as Priyankan Goswami, Luit Chaliha, Bijit Gogoi, Adv. B M Deka, Dr. Dilip Dutta, Bijit Gogoi, Bijit Gogoi, Dr. B K Choudhury, Dr. Narayan Borphukan, Chandan Mahanta, Bhaskar Hazarika, Jyoti Shankar Borah, Jeet Wichan Sharma, Pallab Konwar and Javed Ali behind this suspicious and illegal publication.

On the website of this illegal publication, Times of Assam says: “Times of Assam is again an Independent media as it won the legal dispute (dated 20 February 2022) in the issue of ‘financial loss’ filed by the company acquired it for the last financial period”, although our reporters failed to understand the meaning of such statement.

Deka’s personal website

Dhruba Jyoti Deka also runs his personal website where he claims to be a “professional cyber security adviser” and a “hacker” and states: “Hello. Myself Dhruba Jyoti Deka. Someday in 1998 I got the chance to use a computer with complete freedom. With a P-II CPU and Windows ME, quickly I got deeper of Hacking. During my college days as a student of Computer Engineering, I developed my habbit of hacking people’s email accounts and newcomer websites. Thus my journey started in Cyber world”.

In his own website, a terrorist in disguise Dhruba Jyoti Deka openly admits his involvement in serious cyber crime by stating he developed habit of hacking people’s email accounts and newcomer websites”.

A source said, Deka has been regularly serving the purpose of Pakistani ISI and other anti-India groups and blocs by hacking into email accounts of various government officials and organizations. He also is stealing sensitive information from email accounts of various officials of Indian Army, intelligence and government offices.

Indian authorities need to initiate immediate investigation into the case of Dhruba Jyoti Deka as he poses serious threat to India’s national security.
