I want to start my life anew, says freed man picked up by NIA on terror charges


I don’t want to say anything. I am satisfied after coming home. I hope my brother comes soon,” said Rais Ahmed, a native of Saidpur village in western Uttar Pradesh. Ahmed was arrested on terror charges by National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Earlier this month Rais Ahmed was released from Tihar Jail as the investigating agency was not able to prove the terror charges. Rais was arrested in December 2018 after NIA conducted raids in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi and arrested 14 suspects of Harkat-ul-Harb-e-Islam (Movement for War of Islam), a terror group inspired by the Islamic State (IS)
