Mar 16, 2019 (2 months ago) |
Ernakulam, March 16 : In the ISIS/Daesh-Kasaragod case, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday filed supplementary charge sheet against Nashidul Hamzafar who is accused of hatching a conspiracy along with others with the intention of joining and furthering the objective of proscribed terrorist organization.
NIA filed the supplementary charge sheet before the Special NIA court in Ernakulam, Kerala, against the 26-year-old accused who is a native of Kalpetta, Wayanad district, Kerala under relevant sections of IPC and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

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.
