IIT Guwahati student detained after he pledges 'allegiance to ISIS' in LinkedIn post

Guwahati/IBNS: The police detained an IIT-Guwahati student after he allegedly pledged allegiance to ISIS in Assam's Hajo in a LinkedIn post on Saturday. 

The fourth-year Biotechnology student recently claimed on a social media platform and emails that he intended to join the terror outfit and went missing from the IIT-Guwahati campus.

This comes close following the arrest of the ISIS India head Haris Farooqi in Dhubri district after he allegedly crossed over from Bangladesh.

According to reports, a lookout alert was issued for the student, who is a resident of Delhi, after he wrote an open letter on LinkedIn stating the reason for his decision.

He was found in Hajo, around 30 km from Guwahati, in Kamrup district and detained for interrogation.

When police contacted the IIT-Guwahati authorities, they informed that said student had been "missing' since noon and his mobile phone was also switched off.

Additional Superintendent of Police (STF) Kalyan Kumar Pathak said, "After receiving an email, we verified the authenticity of the contents and started an investigation." The email was sent by the student, in which he claimed that he was on the way to join ISIS.
