NIA arrests four from Maharashtra for having links with ISIS

Mumbai/IBNS/UNI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday arrested four accused for promoting terrorist activities at the behest of ISIS, a proscribed terrorist outfit, in an intelligence-led operation.

The four were arrested after extensive raids by the NIA in Mumbai, Thane, and Pune.

The accused have been identified as Tabish Nasser Siddiqui from Nagpada, Mumbai, Zubair Noor Mohammed Shaikh aka Abu Nusaiba from Kondhwa, Pune, and Sharjeel Shaikh and Zulfikar Ali Barodawala from Padgha, Thane.

Searches were conducted at their houses at five locations in the ISIS Maharashtra module case, registered by NIA on June 28.

NIA teams seized several incriminating materials, such as electronic gadgets and several documents related to ISIS, during the searches at the houses of the accused.

The material seized clearly exposed the strong and active linkages of the accused with ISIS and their efforts to motivate vulnerable youth to further the terror organisation’s anti-India agenda, the NIA said in a statement.

Preliminary investigations by the NIA have established that the accused had hatched a conspiracy to further the terrorist activities of ISIS, known by different names, such as Islamic State (IS)/Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL)/Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)/Daish/ Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP)/ISIS Wilayat Khorasan/Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham Khorasan (ISIS-K).
