NIA questions two suspected IS sympathisers in Tamil Nadu

A National Investigation Agency (NIA) official’s team questioned two persons in Chennai for their alleged links with the Islamic State (IS) on November 9, reports The Times of India. NIA sources said the two men, identified as Mohammed Jaffer of Kondithope and Sahib of Mannadi, were questioned by a team of officials from Delhi in a secluded place in Chennai city. They were summoned to appear before them to inquire after IS sympathiser Shajahan VK had spilled the beans about them during questioning. NIA officials said Shajahan, hailing from Kannur District in Kerala, was deported from Turkey in July after a failed attempt to enter Syria. The Delhi Police arrested him in July after he was deported from Turkey. The NIA took over a case from the Delhi Police in September.

Inquiries revealed that Jaffer and Sahib met Shajahan during their visit to Uttar Pradesh in 2016. Shajahan disclosed to intelligence agencies about the presence of 17 people from Kerala in the IS in Syria and Iraq. Shajahan had visited Turkey for carrying out terrorist activities after procuring an Indian passport in the fake name of Mohammad Ismail Mohideen. He travelled to Turkey from Chennai in February.
