Daijiworld Media Network - Kasargod

Kasargod, Feb 16: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a youth from Kasargod district for his alleged links with terror organization ISIS.

Mouinudheen Parakadavath (25), a resident of Kanhangad here, was arrested at New Delhi on Wednesday February 15.

In a press note, the NIA said that Mouinudheen arrived at the IGI Airport on February 15 from Abu Dhabi and he was summoned to the NIA headquarters on February 15. During interrogation, he admitted to his involvement in the conspiracy and therefore, he was arrested.

The case relates to a terror module in which a group of youths from Kerala including some members based in the Middle East hatched conspiracy as per instructions from their online ISIS handlers. On October 2, 2016, based on the intelligence inputs, five accused associated with this terror module were arrested from Kanakmala Hill in Kannur district, Kerala and another associate was arrested from Calicut the same day. Based on their revelation, it was established that Mouinudheen was a key figure in the module, which was actively planning various aspects of terrorist plot, on a telegram group, the NIA said.

Mouinudheen was using the online identity 'Abu-Al-Indonesi' as well as 'Ibn Abdullah' on the telegram group. It was also revealed by the arrested persons that Mouinudheen had sent funds from Abu Dhabi to members of the terrorist module in Kerala, through Western Union Money Transfer last year.

The arrested person was produced before the NIA special court, New Delhi, seeking transit remand to produce him before the NIA special court, Kerala.

    we always heard that terrorism has no religion. then why we need to comment based on religion. whenever the terrorist arrested by the police, some DW commentators mention RSS/VHP .... name. are they justifying the terrorism? whoever done the crime should be punished. don't bring religion in between. and don't support any crime based on the religion. if any person support the terrorist based on his religion then we can understand that he is not following his religion because no religion preach us crime.
