It can’t get chilling than this. A leaked audio clip of a Wahabi leader accessed by NewsX suggests that a group of youth, which operates along the lines of terror outfit IS, has been active in the Dakshina Kannada district. NewsX, however, cannot vouch for the authenticity of the tape.

The audio, which is in Beary language, is between leaders of a Mangaluru-based organisation where they reveal that IS tentacles are spreading in Karnataka. The youth outfit members reportedly wear black and brown coloured gowns like IS terrorists and have been secretly operating in Mangaluru city.

The audio clip further reveals that engineering graduates are among its members and Muslim youth are being tapped to join the terror fold. Members of the group are reportedly from BC Road, Kalladka, Maripalla and Ulla and they plan to migrate to the terror group’s hub being operated in Yemen.

Incidentally, 2 years back a few young men had gone missing from the Padanna village in Kasargod district and it was rumoured that they had joined the IS.
