The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today conducted searches in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in connection with the new ISIS module, called ‘Harkat ul Harb e Islam’. The searches were being conducted at 16 locations in UP and Delhi. Visuals showed officials on the streets of Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha.
Of the 10 persons detained by the anti-terror probe agency, five were picked up from the western Uttar Pradesh district of Amroha following a joint operation with the UP Anti-Terrorist Squad, Inspector General ATS Asim Arun said in Lucknow.
Today’s raids come a week after the NIA raided the houses of seven persons in various parts of Tamil Nadu for their alleged links with the ISIS. The seven men had been arrested subsequently for conspiring to murder the leaders of some Hindu outfits.
