ISIS suspect arrested near Mumbai in Maharashtra ATS, NIA joint op
Mumbai: Days after security agencies busted a terror plot to target Ardh Kumbh Mela in Haridwar and malls in Delhi-NCR, a suspected operative of the Islamic State (ISIS) was arrested from Mumbra, near Mumbai, on Friday.
The yet unnamed person, said to be in his 30s, was nabbed in an early morning joint operation by sleuths from the Maharashtra ATS and the National Investigation Agency (NIA), reports claimed. Mumbra, in Thane district, is around 30 kms from downtown Mumbai.
Notably, three youths from Malwani, near Mumbai, are feared to have left for Syria to join the ISIS in the past few months.
In 2014 too three youth from the area had left for Syria. Only one of them managed to return.
