Tamil Nadu police detains a Muslim man loitering around a dargah disguised as a Hindu saint

The 27-year-old man was identified as M Abdul Wahab from Sangli district in Maharashtra.

The Tamil Nadu police have nabbed a Muslim man from Maharashtra, who was in the guise of a Hindu ‘saint’ draped in saffron clothing, at Erwadi in Ramanathapuram district in the state.

The 27-year-old man was identified as M Abdul Wahab from Sangli district in Maharashtra. Wahab was found loitering around the Erwadi Dargah, which is famous for treating mentally ill people, disguised as a Hindu sadhu.

When he visited some rural areas on Tuesday, the local people caught him on suspicion that he might have come with some ulterior motive and handed him over to the police. The police detained him for interrogation.

Superintendent of Police, Omprakash Meena, confirmed that the man was in possession of his Aadhaar card, which had the details of his name and residential address. The Tamil Nadu police have got on touch with their counterparts in Maharashtra to verify Wahab’s details. SP Meena confirmed that the future course of action will only be decided once they obtain the verification report from the Maharashtra police.

Recently, the Coimbatore city police had arrested five Muslim youths for allegedly planning to kill Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) leader Arjun Sampath and Sakthi Sena leader Anbu Mari.

The city police had received a tip-off from Central intelligence agencies regarding the murder plan. The Coimbatore police have arrested five Muslim youth, out of which four Muslim youths have been already on the radar of the Central intelligence agencies.

Reportedly, four out of the five arrested are from Chennai and another person is resident of Coimbatore.

Moreover, last month Tamil Nadu was put on high alert following intel that members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba had infiltrated into the state. Reports had suggested six members of the terror outfit infiltrated into the state by sea from Sri Lanka and moved to different cities, including Coimbatore, according to the police.

Security had been stepped up at many places, including airports, railway stations, bus stands and places of worship across the state. An alert had been sounded, especially in coastal districts, to prevent any further possible intrusion.
