In a major breakthrough in the ISIS Maharashtra module case, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday arrested another person for promoting the violent activities of the proscribed terrorist outfit.
Adnanali Sarkar, 43, was arrested following raids from Kondhwa area in Maharashtra’s Pune.
The NIA has seized several incriminating materials, such as electronic gadgets and several documents related to the ISIS, during searches at Sarkar’s Kondhwa house.
The material exposed the accused’s allegiance with the ISIS and his role in promoting the outfit’s violent agenda by motivating and recruiting vulnerable youth, said the NIA.
The anti-terror agency said the accused had hatched a conspiracy to further ISIS terrorist activities, known by different names such as Islamic State (IS), Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Daish, Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP) ISIS Wilayat Khorasan, Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham Khorasan (ISIS-K).
“Sarkar was trying to disturb the unity, integrity, security and sovereignty of the country, and wage a war against the Government of India as part of the ISIS conspiracy through the organisation’s ‘Maharashtra ISIS module,” sad the NIA.
As per the agency, this is the fifth arrest in the case, which the NIA had registered on June 28, 2023. Four others were arrested by the NIA in Mumbai on July 3 this year after extensive searches in Mumbai, Thane and Pune.
