New Delhi [India], Aug. 29 (ANI): The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has moved an application before an NIA court in Kochi, seeking police remand of an alleged woman recruiter for ISIS, Yasmin Ahmed.

The NIA court would take up the matter on September 6, said NIA sources.

Yasmin, who was arrested at New Delhi airport when she was trying to escape to Kabul reportedly to join a Kabul-based ISIS recruiter Abdul Rashid, made some sensational revelations before the Kerala Police's Special Investigation Team (SIT) that ISIS is secretly running terror classes in Kerala, where at least 40 people have been indoctrinated in its ideology of jihad.

Yasmin, 28, a school teacher in Kerala, reportedly told police that Rashid, a fugitive ISIS recruiter, held these classes, and is now operating from Afghanistan.

As per reports, Rashid is believed to have orchestrated the disappearance of 21 youth from Kerala in May-June, however, Yasmin couldn't go along with the group purportedly due to some problem with her four-year-old child's travel documents.

She belongs to Saudi Arabia and came to Kerala three years back after she found a job at a school in Malappuram, where she met Rashid. (ANI)
