IS recruit held by NIA at Pune airport

New Delhi: A 34-year-old man was on Tuesday detained by the NIA at the Pune airport while he was about to fly to Syria via Dubai to join the Islamic State terror outfit, officials said.
Ismail Musab Abdul Rawoof -- who hailed from Bhatkal in Karnataka -- was detained at the airport by sleuths of the National Investigation Agency.
Security agencies were keeping a strict vigil after his name cropped up in internet chats with IS members. The chats are being monitored by sleuths to look for possible followers of the terror group.
Officials said he was detained after the union home ministry issued a 'look out circular' against him some time back.
Over 20 people have been arrested by the NIA this year as part of its probe on indoctrination of youths by the terror outfit.
