New Delhi: The first picture of the chief of Islamic State’s Hyderabad module was released on Wednesday. According to sources, the 32-year-old IS sympathizer is a tech graduate from a local institute from Hyderabad. He was principally coordinating the latest IS module, which was interdicted by NIA on Wednesday morning.
The NIA, assisted by the State Intelligence bureau detained at least 11 people and explosive material and 15 lakh cash was also recovered from the site.
“NIA has detained 11 people for suspected terror links and have recovered explosive material and huge cash,” reported ANI.
Out of 11 detained by the Hydeabad police, 6 will be produced in a local court on Thursday at 10am.
On 22 June, a case was registered by NIA saying that some youths hailing from Hyderabad and their accomplices had entered into criminal conspiracy to wage war against the Government of India by collecting weapons and explosive materials to commit terrorist acts by targeting public places in various parts of the country.
The detained men were continuously in touch with the module handlers in Syria and it is believed that the money recovered was to be used for plotting attacks.
