Bengaluru Police Failed to Track Down Deported IS Sympathiser ?

Submitted by Subeditor on Sat, 2016-01-23 13:18 Bengaluru: The NIA arrest of four ISIS terror suspect from Bengaluru city has now raised a fresh question about whether the City Police failed to track down the anti- social activities of the suspects even though they were “notorious” for “suspicious activities.” Of the four ISIS terror suspects who were arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA) from Bengaluru here on Friday, one suspect named Mohammed Abdul Ahad, a 46 year old software engineer had deported earlier from Turkey for allegedly attempting to enter Syria. Ahad, an Engineering Post Graduate from Kennedy- Western University in California and his family had deported in January 2015 from Turkey while making an attempt to enter Syria. The sources claim that Ahad was interested to join ISIS and failed to reach out the destination due to the unexpected arrest at Turkish border. After being deported, Ahad and his family settled in BDS Nagar of East Bengaluru. Even though the family had a past of suspicious deportation, Bengaluru police failed to keep an eye on Ahad and his family. But NIA officials come to know his involvement in popularising ISIS among Muslim youths of the city and had been keenly watching the movements of Ahad and companions which eventually ended up in the arrest on Friday.
