The NIA had earlier sent a Mutual Legal Assistance request to Kuwait in the Areeb Majeed-ISIS case in respect of transfer of USD 1000 by a Kuwaiti national to arrested Kalyan youth Majeed and his three associates while they were staying in Iraq in May 2014.
Kuwait shared the information on Abdullah with India after the India agencies provided them with information about Kalyan youth arrested for joining IS.
