NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has raided five locations in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra in connection with the Islamic State-Khorasan (ISKP) case. The central agency raided four locations in Seoni Madhya Pradesh and one in Pune on Saturday. NIA teams searched the houses of Talha Khan in Pune and Akram Khan in Seoni. The NIA said the case was registered after the Delhi Police Special Cell arrested a Kashmiri couple Jahanzeb Sami Wani and his wife Hina Bashir Baig from Okhla, Jamia Nagar, Delhi.

The agency said the name of another accused, Abdullah Basit, who was already lodged in Tihar Jail in another case, has also surfaced. On the same day, the NIA conducted searches in Islamic State-Khorasan (ISKP) and three other locations in Seoni in the Shiv Moga case. The places searched include the residential and business properties of the suspects Abdul Aziz Salafi and Shoaib Khan. In the Shiv Moga case, as part of a conspiracy hatched from abroad, the accused Muhammad Shariq, Muaz Munir Khan, Yasin and others targeted government and private properties like godowns, liquor shops on the instructions of their handlers located abroad. Hardware stores, vehicles and other property belonging to a particular community were torched and more than 25 events were carried out.

According to the agency, these people have allegedly been accused of detonating fake IEDs. The NIA says they are being funded with digital currency by an online handler for the plot. As part of the larger conspiracy, accused Muhammad Shariq had planned to detonate an IED at the Kadri temple in Mangalore on November 19 last year. However, the IED exploded prematurely in an accident. Abdul Salafi Seoni, 40, is an imam at the Jamia Masjid, while Shoaib, 26, sells car spare parts.

False propaganda from social media

The counter-terrorism agency said they use social media platforms to spread such false propaganda to vulnerable youth. Promoting such efforts, the NIA said Aziz Salafi was also in touch with the arrested accused from Karnataka, Major Munir Ahmed, who procured explosives for the test blasts. Moaz was arrested by the NIA in November last year. The NIA said that the investigation is underway to find out the entire conspiracy involving the accused.
