NIA files charge sheet against Islamic State-linked Kerala man for waging war

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on August 11 filed a charge sheet against Islamic State (IS) operative Moinudheen Parakadavath, who was a member of outfit called Ansar-ul-Khilafah Kerala (soldiers of the Caliphate as propagated by IS), formed by Shajeer Mangalessary, reports The Times of India. Moinudheen, a resident of Kasaragod District, had also travelled to Tehran (Iran) along with the group leader Shajeer and even met five members of the 22 missing persons from Kerala, who are now in Afghanistan, at the Iran border. He was deported from UAE (United Arab Emirates) on February 15, 2017.

He had told the investigators that the eight member group wanted to target several Hindu leaders, Ahmadiyya mosques and Jamaat-e-Islami Hind to "create ripples" in India and mark IS''s presence. In one of his conversations in a closed IS group on `Telegram'' channel, he had informed NIA officials, that someone posted details of a Jamaat-e-Islami programme to be held in Kochi last year (2016) where Rahul Eashwar, a Hindu orator, was invited as a speaker. "One person suggested that we should target such events. I suggested that Kochi Jewish temple is also close to the venue. Someone suggested that we should use a bike to carry out the attack. But I suggested that we should use a tipper lorry for the attack," Moinudheen said during his interrogation. About the missing 22 persons from Kerala, who are now said to be in Nangarhar in Afghanistan, Moinudheen had said that while he tried to reach IS territory via Tehran in June 2016, he met five of them on the Iraq border.

"I was travelling from Abu Dhabi to Tehran with Shajeer Mangalasseri Abdulla, another resident of Kasaragod in Kerala. We reached Tehran in June. After travelling 15 hours from Tehran to the city of Mashhad in Iran, we were informed on chat that there were some Keralites in Mashhad who were also travelling to IS territory and if we would like to meet them," he said. "We met five persons from Kasaragod in Mashhad - Dr Ijas, Marwan, Manzad, Hafeesudheen and one more person whose name I don''t remember," he told his interrogators.
