NIA files supplementary charge sheet against one accused in ISIS/Daesh-Kasaragod case
The case is related to a criminal conspiracy hatched since 2015. Following the conspiracy, 14 accused persons from Kasaragod district left India or their workplaces in the Middle East, Asia between mid-May and early-July in 2016, before travelling to Afghanistan and Syria where they allegedly joined the ISIS/Daesh.
On September 18, 2018, NIA arrested Hamzafar after he was deported to Delhi from Kabul, Afghanistan, where he was arrested by Afghan security agencies in October 2017 for illegally entering the country and attempting to physically join his co-conspirators in ISIS/ Daesh. Hamzafar had left India on October 3, 2017, and travelled to Muscat in Oman before travelling to Iran and further reaching Kabul in Afghanistan.
Hamzafar had allegedly maintained contact with the other absconding accused persons like the prime conspirator Abdul Rashid Abdulla and Ashfak Majeed who were known to him through his college friends.
