ISIS module busted in politically sensitive Kannur of Kerala; heres more

In a shocker for the whole of India, the Kerala police have unraveled unit of ISIS operating in the state. The unit members also are of firm belief that ISIS model is that of true Islam. The unit has also been busted in Kannur, which is already known for political contention. Police sources said that they have instituted a cell to track these terror units.

An ISIS unit has been exposed in Kerala, the police said today after the arrest of five suspects in Kannur. UK Hamsa or Taliban Hamsa, believed to be the key terrorist handler, is among the five men arrested since yesterday.

Hamsa, 52, was also the chief trainer at the ISIS unit, say Kerala police sources.

During his interrogation, he has dared the police to call in a religious expert to prove his assertion that the “ISIS is true Islam”.

The police say Hamsa had operated from Gulf countries since 1998. “He worked at a Bahrain-based religious centre Al Ansar, which we suspect to be a training centre for ISIS sympathisers. Many Indians who are suspected to have joined ISIS, took this route to Syria,” said PP Sadanandan, Deputy Superintendent of Police for Kannur.

42-year-old Manaf Rahman, arrested along with Hamsa, was indoctrinated by him and was supposed to leave for Syria six months back, say sources.

He was turned back at the Mangaluru airport based on suspicion. Hamsa was supposed to leave the country after Manaf, but he too, had to stay back.

“We have formed a special team in Kannur to track terror-related modules including ISIS networks. These arrested have been questioned many times before. We have been in coordination with NIA (National Investigation Agency) as well as other state police forces to track the activities and movement of suspects. There are more under our scanner,” Kannur Police Chief G Siva Vikram told media persons.

Yesterday, three men who had been turned back from Turkey four months ago were arrested. The men, all in the mid-twenties, had been on the radar of the police ever since they were sent back.

Kannur police said they were headed to Syria to join the terror organization. When their online activities were tracked, it was found that they had been active on websites with links to ISIS, said Mr Sadanandan.

The three have been identified by the police as Mithilaj KC, 26, Abdul Razak KV, 24, and Rasheed MV, 23.

An estimated 100 Indians have left to fight for ISIS in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, many of them from Kerala amid concerns that an extreme form of Islam was taking root in the state.

The National Investigation Agency has been probing cases of disappearance of at least 21 people are suspected to have joined the ISIS.
