Plan to set up ISIS terror cell in Tamil Nadu: 14 arrested by NIA


Amid skirmishes in Parliament over the NIA Bill, the National Investigating Agency arrested 14 men from Tamil Nadu on July 17. They were held on charges of raising funds in Dubai to set up ISIS terror cells in India, sources in the agency said.

It has been alleged that these men also support terrorist organisation Al-Qaeda while having links with Yemeni terror group Ansarullah, the NIA sources added. According to an NDTV report, these men would operate under different names including Wahadat-e-Islam, Jihadist Islamic Unit, and Jamaath Wahadat-e-Islam Al Jihadiye.

They were intercepted and jailed in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for six months before they were deported to India earlier this month. Read More
