SRINAGAR: The NIA on Monday detained three persons in Anantnag district of south Kashmir while conducting raids for the second successive day in connection with a case related to circulation of propaganda by ISIS. Six persons had been arrested on Sunday.
On Sunday, NIA had conducted raids at multiple locations in Srinagar and Anantnag. The raids on both days were conducted to trace people indulged in propaganda to radicalise Kashmiris through a magazine –Voice of Hind (VoH).
NIA spokesman said those arrested on Monday included Umar Nisar of Magray Mohalla Achabal, Tanveer Ahmad Bhat of Gori Mohalla Achabal and Rameez Ahmad Lone of Chak Achabal, all in Anantnag district.
According to the spokesman, ISIS terrorists operating from various conflict zones, along with ISIS cadres in India, have assumed pseudo-online identities and have created a network through which ISIS-related propaganda material is disseminated for radicalizing and recruiting members to the ISIS fold.
“An India-centric online propaganda magazine, ‘The Voice of Hind’ is published every month with an aim to incite and radicalize impressionable youth,” the spokesman added.
NIA had earlier conducted searches at the premises of the arrested accused and claimed to have recovered incriminating documents, multiple digital devices and T-shirts with ISIS logo.
Preliminary examination of the seized material and examination of the accused persons revealed that they are active cadres of ISIS and have been using cyberspace to propagate inciting material through VoH.
