Pune: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday arrested Nabeel Khatri, a 27-year-old gym trainer, and Sadiya Sheikh, a 22-year-old and a student of Mass communication.
The investigation has revealed that accused Sadiya Sheikh was continuously in touch with Jahanzaib Sami, Hina Bashir Beigh & Abdullah Basith on various secure messaging applications and deliberating on as to how to propagate the ideology of ISIS and further its activities in India. They were trying to build up a cadre of ISIS in India by recruiting gullible youth for terrorist activities.
Who is Jahanzaib Sami, Hina Bashir Beigh & Abdullah Basith?
The case was initially registered by Delhi Police Special Cell on 8th March 2020, after the arrest of a Kashmiri couple Jahanzaib Sami Wani and his wife Hina Bashir Beigh from Jamia Nagar, Okhla Vihar, Delhi. The couple was having affiliations with ISKP, which is a banned terrorist organization and is a part of ISIS, and was found to be involved in subversive and anti-national activities. They were also found to be in touch with Abdullah Basith, who is already lodged in Tihar jail in another NIA case (ISIS Abu Dabhi module).
