Youth allegedly flees to Abu Dhabi to convert to Islam, radicalised after chatting with Muslim woman: Reports

The police and the Anti-Terrorism Squad are trying to find out if Parihar's visit to Abu Dhabi was pre-planned, or if it was sponsored by someone.

In a case of suspected radicalisation, a youth from Mulund, Mumbai has mysteriously disappeared as reported by DNA.

The youth named Jagdish Parihar, 23, who is suspected to have been radicalised online, has flown to Abu Dhabi as revealed after a probe. According to the police, the youth had left home around 1:30 pm on Tuesday on the pretext on filling a form in Mumbai University for the last year of the B. Com course he was pursuing. He had called up his family on Thursday morning on WhatsApp and told them he was in Delhi for some business and would return home soon. However, he did not return.

According to the information given to the police by the family, Parihar called them stating on Tuesday that he was unhappy with Hinduism and wished to join Islam. He told his family that he did not wish to return home. Sensing something amiss, Parihar’s family approached the police.

The family suspects that Parihar used to chat with a Muslim woman and was indoctrinated online.

As told by a police officer, “he deleted his social media accounts and formatted his computer before leaving. Parihar’s last cellphone location was Mumbai’s international airport. After checking in with immigration authorities, we learnt that he left for Abu Dhabi on a three-month tourist visa”.

The police and the Anti-Terrorism Squad are trying to find out if Parihar’s visit to Abu Dhabi was pre-planned, or if it was sponsored by someone.
