Amroha: A day after NIA nabbed terror module members, their kin stage protest on highway

Brothers Raees and Saeed Ahmed were arrested yesterday along with 8 others for their alleged links to ISIS. Chemicals for explosives, a rocket launcher and several other incriminating objects were recovered from their welding shop in Amroha.

In a dangerous turn of events, family members of those arrested by the NIA yesterday for their alleged links to ISIS in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh have resorted to protests and blocked the highway.

Yesterday, NIA had made ten arrests in the terror module case. The welding shop owned by arrested brothers Raees Ahmed and Saeed Ahmed is said to be crucial in the operations of the terror module as NIA allegedly confiscated a number of incriminating objects including crude weapons, a rocket launcher, raw material for explosives and ISIS literature from the shop.

In the video, the father of the arrested brothers Raees and Saeed from Saidapura Imma village in Amroha can be heard asserting that his sons could not have possibly done anything that they are being accused of and demanded their release. The mother of those arrested has also casts aspersions on the raids carried out by the NIA. Apart from the parents, a large crowd can also be seen present at one of the locations where the NIA conducted raids yesterday.

The National Investigative Agency (NIA) in a joint operation with the Uttar Pradesh anti-terrorism squad on Wednesday had conducted searches across 17 locations in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in connection with a new ISIS module named ‘Harkat ul Harb-e-Islam’.

The NIA IG has said that their level of preparedness suggests they wanted to carry out explosions in near future by remote control blasts and fidayeen attacks. A total amount of Rs. 7.5 lakh, 100 mobile phones and 135 sim cards were recovered along with laptops. A country made rocket launcher was also recovered. Reports claimed that the Ahmed brothers had made the rocket launcher and also stored chemicals for explosives, pipe bombs and other material in their shop.

Recently, the NIA had also raided several locations in Delhi, Noida and Mewat in Haryana to bust a terror module supported by Hafiz Saeed’s organisation FIF.
