NIA conducts fresh raids in Delhi, Amroha to arrest five more suspects of the ISIS module

The total number of arrested accused in the case has now reached 15. The recent raids were reportedly carried out after a tip-off from the accused Maulvi.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has continued its search to nab suspected Islamic State (IS) terrorists in Delhi and Amroha. The NIA along with Delhi Police’s special cell has arrested five suspected terrorists during this raids on Sunday.

According to reports, the NIA has seized several Islamic State (IS) pamphlets and weapons from the suspected terrorists. The joint raids by investigation agencies were conducted at Seelampur and Jaffrabad in Delhi and also Amroha, Uttar Pradesh. Maulvi Mohammad Suhail was a resident of Jaffrabad in Delhi and as per reports, the recent raids were made after a tip-off from Suhail.

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

According to the NIA, a Maulvi, a civil engineering student from Amity University in Noida, a 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. Explosives including a rocket launcher were seized in large amounts by the agencies.

The total number of suspects arrested so far, in this case, has reached 15. The welding shop owned by brothers Raees and Saeed Ahmed was a crucial point in the case as several weapons and ISIS literature was seized from there.

The NIA IG had 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.

Mufti Mohammad Suhail alias Hazrath is the alleged mastermind of the terror module and was regularly visiting Delhi to test the weapons he procured from illegal arms suppliers in Western UP’s Meerut and Hapur areas. Reportedly, he used the noise of Diwali crackers to cover up the sound to test-fire the pistols.
