Three Abu Dhabi based Indians allegedly working for Islamic State (ISIS) were recently deported to India. These deported men are Shaikh Azhar al Islam Abdul Sattar Sheikh, Mohammed Farhan Rafiq Shaikh and Adnan Hussain. They were reportedly working with Islamic State's Abu Dhabi module. The men who were arrested are wanted for conspiracy to identify, motivate, recruit and train Indians at home and abroad to carry out terror attacks.
Earlier the Union home minister Rajnath Singh said India’s security agencies are capable of dealing with any threat posed by the terror group. "We have the capacity to meet any threat. We will face it," said the Indian Union home minister. The home minister's comments came amidst concern over the growing attempts by ISIS to lure youths into its fold.
Following the deportation of three Indians from the UAE for allegedly recruiting for terror group ISIS, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has registered a fresh case to probe terror conspiracy. NIA is also probing whether the group had picked up men who once belonged to banned groups like the Indian Mujahideen and the Student's Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).
Days earlier 14 youths were arrested by security agencies after they allegedly formed a unit on the pattern of ISIS to carry out strikes at vital installations.
