Two more of ISIS sympathizers detained in Hyderabad, Maharashtra

New Delhi: The security agencies on Monday detained two more persons from Hyderabad and Maharashtra for their alleged links with the global terror outfit Islamic State.

The security agencies are likely to hand over the two persons to National Security Agency (NIA) on Wednesday.

The two, whose names have been withheld, are being questioned by a joint team of intelligence agencies.

NIA claims that the two accused were in constant contact with the ISIS members in Syria and Iraq through chatting services like ‘Skype’, ‘Signal’ and ‘Trillion’ and were using social networking sites to motivate youth to join the terror outfit.

The central probe agency has so far arrested 14 people belonging to Janood-ul-Khalifa-e-Hind' (Army of Caliph of India), the Indian wing of ISIS, from various states for allegedly planning to carry out terror attacks at important locations across the country.
