IS operative arrested by NIA

On February 14, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a Kerala youth, Mouinudheen Parakadavath (25), for being part of an Islamic State (IS) terrorist conspiracy in India, reports The Statesman. The agency said the youth hailing from Kasaragod District was questioned at the NIA headquarters when he arrived at the IGI airport in Delhi from Abu Dhabi. During his examination, he admitted to his involvement in the conspiracy, NIA said. The case relates to a terror module in which a group of youths from Kerala including some members based in the Middle-East, hatched a conspiracy as per instructions from their online IS handlers.

Based on intelligence inputs, five accused, associated with this terror module, were arrested from Kanakamala Hill in Kannur District in Kerala on 2 October, 2016 and another associate was arrested from Calicut the same day. Their disclosures established that Mouinudheen was a key figure in the module, which was actively planning various aspects of the terrorist plot, on a Telegram group. Mouinudheen was using the online identity Abu-Al-Indonesi as well as Ibn Abdullah, on the telegram group, NIA said. It was revealed by the arrested persons that Mouinudheen had sent funds from Abu Dhabi to members of the terrorist module in Kerala, for the conspiracy, through Western Union Money Transfer, last year (2016).
