The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday is conducting a massive crackdown on suspects having links with the banned terrorist organization ISIS at around 60 locations in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. News agency ANI gave this information quoting sources. The raids are being conducted in connection with the blasts in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu and Mangaluru in Karnataka last year.
NIA conducted searches at more than 60 places in Chennai, Coimbatore, Nagapattinam, Tirunelveli districts on the basis of information received from the accused in the Coimbatore suicide blast case during the investigation. Jameeza Mubeen, who died in the Coimbatore blast, was questioned by the central anti-terror agency in 2019 over alleged ISIS links, police said.
Police said Mubeen was driving with two open cylinders and one of them exploded. Later, a ‘low-intensity explosive material’ was recovered during a search of his house. Tamil Nadu police chief C Silendra Babu had said that they were working on ‘some plan for the future’.
Similarly, the NIA had taken over the November 19 Mangaluru auto-rickshaw blast case in December last year, in which two people, including the prime suspect, were injured. The Karnataka Police had said that the blast was not accidental, but was a “terrorist act with intent to cause grievous harm”
