ISIS terrorist held for Indian Independence Day plot
After an ISIS terrorist was arrested by Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) from Azamgarh's Amilo for planning an IED blast on Independence Day, his brother Salim said that it was "beyond understanding" how Sabauddin Azmi, the arrested, was being linked to the terrorist organisation.
Sabauddin was arrested on August 9 by the UP ATS for planning an IED blast on Independence Day.
"He did not use to go anywhere. It was not visible in the way he conducted. It is being said that he is connected with ISIS. It is beyond our understanding," Salim said.
According to an official release, Sabauddin Azmi alias Dilawar Khan alias Bairam Khan alias Azar, is a member of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM). He is a resident of the Amilo area of Azamgarh district.
Subauddin used to lure people to join it and also propagated about ISIS on social media platforms.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Police on August 10 recovered approximately 25 to 30 kilograms of improvised explosive device (IED) near the Tahab Crossing on Circular road in the Union Territory's Pulwama.
