Miners was suspected of being an Islamic State activist

New Delhi: Former British model Kimberley Miners who was on terror watchlist has now been arrested over her connection with Islamic State (IS) group.

Miners was suspected of being an IS activist after she allegedly used social media to communicate with the Islamic terror group.

According to reports, Miners shared numerous IS-related videos on social sites prompting Britain's anti-terrorist police and MI5 secret service to start an investigation. The videos depict scenes of war and bombings such as children being trained by militants and how to use weapons.

Miners has denied having links to terrorism and supporting violence claiming that the accounts were fake profiles made against her.

The 27-year-old former topless model from Bradford, UK converted to Islam after the death of her father in 2010 and adopted a Muslim name Aicha.

Miners was detained under the Terrorism Act 2000 and has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

A search operation is being conducted at her residential property in the city.
