New Delhi: Days after arresting Mehdi Masroor Biswas, the alleged brain behind a pro-ISIS Twitter account, security agencies have learnt that one of the three Kalyan youths still in Iraq/Syria is posting pro-Islamic State material on social media sites.

Security agencies have received intel input that one Kalyan youngster who is currently with Islamic jihadists in Mosul (Iraq) is active on Twitter.

In May this year, four youths from Kalyan -- Areeb Majeed, Shaheen Tanki, Fahad Shaikh and Aman Tandel -- had left the country to visit holy places in West Asia, but disappeared thereafter. According to police, the four engineering students had flown to Baghdad on May 23 as part of a group of 22 pilgrims to visit religious shrines in Iraq.

Of the four, 22-year-old civil engineer  Majeed had returned after spending nearly six months in Iraq and was arrested. 

Majeed was booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) on charges of conspiring to commit a terror act and being a member of a banned foreign terror outfit, and under the stringent Section 125 of the IPC for "waging war against the nation".
