New Delhi [India], Aug 13 (ANI): The NIA Court">NIA Court on Monday sent the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) suspect youths - Mohammed Abdullah Basith (24) and Mohammed Abdul Qhadeer (19) - to 11-day National Investigation Agency (NIA) remand.
NIA had sought 15 days remand for the two suspects, who were arrested from Hyderabad on Sunday for allegedly planning acts of terror on the instructions of ISIS, a proscribed terrorist organisation.
The accused, Basith and Qhadeer, came under the radar of the security agency after it received information from a reliable source that they were associated with a group of three youths, who were arrested from Maharashtra's Nagpur airport two years back for allegedly training people to carry out terrorist attacks.
The NIA also conducted raids at seven places on August 6 in Hyderabad. A lot of incriminating material was recovered and seized. The same was later sent to CFSL Hyderabad for analysis and data extraction.
In 2016, NIA arrested Sheikh Azhar ul Islam, Mohammed Farhan Shaikh and Adnan Hassan for identifying, motivating, radicalising, recruiting and training Indian Muslim youth on behalf of the proscribed outfit ISIS to carry out terror activities.
During their trial, Sheikh Azhar ul Islam and Mohammed Farhan Shaikh pleaded guilty and were sentenced to seven years of imprisonment, while trial against accused Adnan Hassan is underway. (ANI)
