Ahmedabad [India], Feb. 26 (ANI): The Gujarat Anti Terror Squad (ATS) has arrested two brothers from the state for their alleged involvement in activities related to the terror group ISIS. Wasim and Nathin were arrested from Rajkot and Bhavnagar respectively, in an operation launched by the ATS. Earlier this month, the NIA arrested a Kerala resident, in connection with its probe in alleged ISIS module. Last year, the ATS of Rajasthan had arrested an alleged Islamic State operative in Sikar district who was involved in collecting and transferring funds for the terror organisation from Dubai. Meanwhile, Indian doctor K Ramamurthy who landed in India after being rescued from the clutches of ISIS, said that the terror outfit is keeping an eye on the development of education and economy in India and wants and wants to push their ideology in the country. Rescued from the Islamic State prison on February 14, Dr Ramamurthy told ANI that the members of the terror outfit are educated youngsters and know everything about India's growth. "These ISIS people are well-educated youngsters and they do know about India and its development and how it has developed in education, economy and everything else. They are interested in India. But, I did understand that they wanted to spread the ideology of their nation to other parts of the world, including India," he said. (ANI)
