College students, maulvi, rickshaw driver among those recruited by ISIS inspired terror module to carry out terror attacks

The module was highly radicalised and was active since last 3-4 months.

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

As per NIA, a maulvi, a civil engineering student from Amity University in Noida, third year BA student, an auto-rickshaw driver, welding shop owner and a garments business owner are among those who are accused and suspects. A woman believed to be linked to the module is also detained and is being questioned.

The NIA has detained ten people for interrogation, from which five have been detained from Amroha itself. The NIA IG in a press briefing said that their level of preparedness suggests they wanted to carry out explosions in near future by remote control blasts and fidayeen attacks. He added that this is a new ISIS-inspired terror-module and they were in touch with a foreign agent.
