Indian sleuths in Sri Lanka to aid probe into Easter attacks


Indian agencies have flagged videos and online speeches by the alleged mastermind of the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday terrorist attacks, Moulvi Zahran Hashim, that were produced in Tamil Nadu and sought to lure and radicalise recruits.

The cleric was found to have crossed over to India by boat with the help of smugglers to upload his lectures on You-Tube and Facebook, said Indian intelligence officials with knowledge of the matter. Hashim’s videos and speeches were also part of seizures made by the  National Investigation Agency (NIA) during raids in Coimbatore last year.

Following Islamic State’s claim of responsibility for the blasts, a two-member team — comprising one official each from Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) and Intelligence Bureau (IB) — has reached Colombo to assist the probe, said the officials.   Read More
