7c News, UP ATS arrest 3 ISIS suspects across multiple states in joint operation

New Delhi: In one of the biggest crackdown on ISIS module in India, police teams across five states aided by the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) and the Delhi Police Special Cell on Thursday arrested three suspected terrorists who are suspected to be a part of an ISIS terror module.

As per sources, the terrorists have been arrested from Jalandhar, Mumbai, and Bijnor and they were allegedly looking for potential recruits in several states in the country including Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Maharashtra.

The three terrorists were nabbed after police teams from the state of Maharashtra, Punjab, Bihar, UP carried out the operation.

 Sources reveal that six more people have been detained by the police teams and they are currently being interrogated.

Information also suggests that the group of terrorists arrested were being readied to carry out terror activities in the country.

While there have been several crackdowns on ISIS modules in some states across India, the officials have now intensified operations to track down and nab such terrorists due to the UP train blasts, that were purportedly conducted by terror groups, linked to the global terror group.

In the past, ISIS-inspired youths have been arrested from India as well, especially from the state of Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.

Several individuals from the country had earlier left to join ranks in the most dominant terror group across the Middle East.
