Messages praising ISIS found written on the pillars of a bridge in Navi Mumbai, high alert issued

The police have installed CCTV cameras on the roads located near the area where the messages were found in order to gather clues.

A high alert has been issued in Navi Mumbai after messages praising Islamic State (ISIS) were found written on pillars in Khopte Bridge in Urban area of Raigad district on Tuesday, as per reports. The messages reportedly praised the soldiers fighting for the IS and mentioned names including IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and LeT chief Hafiz Saeed. The messages also included the images of rockets.

A team along with Navi Mumbai crime branch has been set up to investigate the matter. “A separate team and Navi Mumbai crime branch are investigating the matter. There are vital installations nearby the bridge and, therefore, these messages cannot be ignored,” said a Navi Mumbai official.

The police have installed CCTV cameras on the roads located near the area where the messages were found in order to gather clues. Possibility of the messages being a prank has not been ruled out by the police.

“It may be a local playing to prank, but this cannot be taken lightly. The particular place does not have CCTV camera, therefore, we are taking statements of people to see if they saw someone writing the messages on the pillar,” a police official divulged.

Apart from the Navi Mumbai crime branch, the matter is also being investigated by the Maharashtra unit of Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).

Many from India especially Kerala have joined ISIS. We had reported earlier that Rashid Abdulla, a Kerala ISIS module leader is believed to have been killed by US bombings in Afghanistan almost a month ago.
