ISIS sympathizers case: NIA to take over investigation
Mumbai : The NIA, probing dozens of terror cases registered under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, will be taking over a case from Maharashtra where four suspected sympathisers of banned outfit ISIS were arrested by the state ATS. The police interrogating the accused had found that over 60 people from the state were on the very important “kill list” of ISIS.
The arrests began in July this year when the state ATS arrested Naseer Bin Yafai Chaus (31), a civil contactor, from Parbhani. His arrest led to three more arrests. The police had recovered 1.5kg partially-made, low-intensity IED from the suspects. They had initially admitted to have planned attacks on several senior police officials too. “Notification has been issued and soon the case is going to be transferred to the NIA,” said an ATS officer. The NIA, which is taking over most of the terror cases in the country, is said to have been probing a larger conspiracy angle.
