Global terror outfit Islamic State had asked its recruits in India to infiltrate the protests led by JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and create disorder in the country.
According to a report, when Kanhaiya was arrested on sedition charges, ISIS’ Ahmad Ali had reportedly asked Ashiq Ahmad alias Raja of Hooghly to infiltrate the movement and burn vehicles and oil tankers.
This information has been revealed in the statements by three recruits of ISIS’ India wing- Ashiq Ahmad, Mohammad Abdul Ahad and Mohammad Afzal.
National Investigation Agency (NIA) said that their idea was to create disorder in the country.
The report further states that Ahmed Ali, head of Ansar-ut-Twahid fi Bilad al-Hind (AuT), contacted Ashiq on February 19 on Trillion app and asked him to enter the student’s movement and pul vehicles and oil tankers on fire.
AuT is responsible for the creation of Junud al Khalifa-e-Hind (JKH) in India.
The outfit was planning to target Shia Muslims and free former Indian Mujahideen chief Yasin Bhatkal from jail.
