A day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Kerala Capital, a person having links with ISIS was arrested from the Vattiyoorkavu police station limit here.

Tamil Nadu native Sadiq Basha, who served 24 months in jail for anti-national activities, was arrested on Sunday with a fake police sticker on his car, sources said.
