ISIS Recruitments From Kerala; NIA Questions Three Residents
KASARAGOD/PALAKKAD: Three residents of Kasaragod and Palakkad districts are being questioned by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) as part of a probe into ISIS recruitments from Kerala. Incriminating evidence was said to have been recovered during raids at their homes today, reports NDTV.
The three are believed to have been in touch with some of the people who left the state to join the international terror group. Sources said the probe agency is also trying to establish if they have links with those involved in the April 21 suicide bomb attacks in Sri Lanka.
According to a press release, NIA officials recovered a number of devices such as mobile phones, phone SIM cards, memory chips, pen drives and handwritten notes in Arabic and Malayalam from their possession. DVDs of religious speeches and books authored by controversial preacher Dr Zakir Naik were also found during the raids, NDTV reported.
