ISIS accused worked to create caliphate in India: Karnataka Police
Last Update: 23 September 2022, 17:46 IST
Suspected Islamic State-inspired militants, who were arrested here earlier this week, wanted to establish a caliphate and enforce Sharia law in the country, a police official said on Friday because they believed that India has not yet achieved its independence. Shivamogga Superintendent of Police BM Lakshmi Prasad said the arrested persons were working towards fulfilling these ideologies in the country.
“Their (accused) ideology was that India has not achieved its independence yet and the freedom the country has achieved is from British rule. Real freedom will come when the caliphate is established and after that Sharia law will come into force.
According to him, engineers Syed Yasin (21), engineering students Maz Munir Ahmed (22) and Sharik (24) were booked on September 19 under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Sharik is absconding. While the other two have been arrested.
The SP said the suspected terrorists follow the ideology adopted by IS. “The arrested persons wanted to wage war against the infidels and the unbelievers,” Prasad said. For the fulfillment of this goal, the accused had burnt the national flag and the police have recovered the half-burnt tricolor.
He also conducted an experimental explosion at Gurupur on the outskirts of Shivamogga near the Tunga river. He said most of the material was purchased locally but an electronic device was procured through an e-commerce portal. On August 15, the police had arrested a man for allegedly stabbing a youth during the violence in the district. The SP said that this IS module was busted during his interrogation.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has joined the Shivamogga Police in the investigation.
