Post 3 Indians with ‘IS links’ deported from Gulf state

Three Indians have been deported from a Gulf country yesterday for their alleged involvement in an online propaganda of the Islamic State. With their landing here, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has served a formal summon to them for questioning.
The security agencies had credible information that the three individuals — Sheikh Azhar Al Islam Abdul Sattar Sheikh, Mohammed Farhan Mohammed Rafiq Shaikh and Adnan Hussain Mohd — were involved in a conspiracy to “identify, motivate, radicalise, recruit and train Indian citizens located both in India and other countries”.
NIA Sources said an FIR was registered against them for their plans to execute terror attacks in India and in other friendly countries. “A decision with regard to arrest or otherwise of these three would be taken only after examining them,” they added.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said the agencies in the country were “capable” of dealing with the threats posed by the group.
On the sidelines of a function at Greater Noida, Singh, to a query about the spread of IS threat in the country, said: “We have the capacity to meet any threat. We will face it.”
The NIA had recently picked up 14 youths from 12 locations in five states after they allegedly formed a terror module on the pattern of the IS to carry out strikes at vital installations.
According to Indian intelligence agencies, 23 Indians have so far joined the IS, of which six were reportedly killed in different incidents in Iraq-Syria. These also include two absconding members of the banned Indian Mujahideen (IM), who had gone there from their hideouts in Pakistan. Nearly 150 Indians are under surveillance for their alleged online links with the IS.
