NIA files chargesheet against IS operative for conspiring to recruit youth for terror activities in India


NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday filed a chargesheet against an accused in a case related to a conspiracy hatched by proscribed Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS, for recruitment of youth for terror activities in India, an official said.

The chargesheet against Mohammad Mohsin Ahmad, a resident of Patna in Bihar, was filed in the special NIA court in Patiala House Court here, a spokesperson of the federal agency said.

The official said the case, pertaining to a conspiracy hatched by ISIS for propagation of its ideology and to raise funds for the organization, was suo-moto registered by the NIA on June 25 last year.

“During investigations, it has been established that Ahmad raised funds for the ISIS and sent these funds to his Syria-based ISIS handlers through Crypto currency channels,” the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said the accused was chargesheeted under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

“Investigations have revealed that the accused conspired with an ISIS handler and others for propagation of the ISIS ideology, with the ultimate objective to radicalize the Indian youth and recruit them for the terror group,” the spokesperson said.

The official said the accused was also involved in raising funds for the global terror group from ISIS sympathizers in India and sending the collected funds to his Syria-based ISIS handlers through crypto-currency channels, thereby supporting the ISIS in furtherance of its terrorist activities.
