Dhanbad: In what could add to the concerns of security agencies, a youth wearing an Islamic State (IS) T-shirt was spotted in Dhanbad, months after the terror group's flags were seen flying in Srinagar.
The youth was arrested by the Jharkhand Police in Dhanbad's Jharia area after he was seen wearing the T-shirt.
The T-shirt had the words 'ISIS' and 'Pakistan' written on the front along with the Pakistan flag printed on it.
Two other people were also arrested by the police for printing the shirt.
A security alert was earlier sounded in Jammu and Kashmir after the presence of the terror group's flags in the state capital.
The incident took place during Eid celebrations when masked men were seen carrying the IS flag.
However, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah denied the allegations of presence of IS in the state and said that there was no reason to believe that the terror outfit has any presence in the Valley merely because some youths waved IS flags in the state.
A US-led coalition including 40 countries is currently battling the IS militant group, which holds significant areas of Iraq and Syria.
The group has global ambitions and aims to establish dominance across the world.
