NIA investigation in the Amroha ISIS-inspired terror module case reveals Kashmir connection

The ISIS-inspired Amroha terrorist module was busted by the NIA in a joint operation with the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad in December last year.

According to a report of Times of India, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the ongoing investigation in the Amroha ISIS-inspired module case has found that the founder of the module Mufti Mohammad Suhail alias Hazrath had travelled to Tral, Rajouri and Bandipora in Kashmir twice last year. According to the agency, Hazrath travelled to these places to seek arms training from a Pakistani trained Mujahideen (terrorist).

The information was given to the NIA by Suhail’s close aid Saqib Iftekar during interrogation. Iftekar who used to work as an Imam at Jama Masjid in Baksar, Uttar Pradesh allegedly helped the module in procuring weapons to carry out attacks in North India. Saqib is reported to have travelled to South Kashmir in May and August last year and had several meetings for religious purposes in Rajouri and Bandipora.

He later met a Mufti in Tral along with his accomplice to get a meeting arranged with a Mujahideen. Whether the meeting with the terrorist actually took place or not is still being verified. According to an official, “Saqib told this Kashmiri Mufti about his plans to get training from a Kashmiri Mujahid as they are trained in arms, bombs and attack government officials. The Kashmiri Mufti informed him that he knows such person”.

Two more members of the terrorist module, Zubair Malik and Anas Yunus have made some revelations. Zubair Malik, a student of BA in Delhi University told the NIA that he bought similar smartphones with removable batteries to make calls. “They bought similar smartphones with detachable batteries and every time they made a call or had a chat, they were asked to remove the batteries so that their phones cannot be tracked”, Malik said. Anas Yunus revealed that he used to create a new Telegram group every day to discuss their plans which he would delete every night.

The ISIS-inspired Amroha terrorist module was busted by the NIA in a joint operation with the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad in December last year. The Investigating Agencies have conducted raids at several places since then and the investigation is still going on. Eleven arrests have been made in the case so far.
