Success is another name for Rajasthan ATS (Anti-Terrorism Squad). In its biggest crackdown on terrorism, the shrewd police officers of Rajasthan have detained an ISIS suspect from Chennai today. The suspect Haroon is a 30-year-old mobile shop owner in Burma Bazaar, Chennai. He is allegedly believed to be an ISIS worker mobilizing funds in terrorist operations. Also, the police suspect him of recruiting young terror operatives for the supposedly biggest terrorist organization in the world.
The ISIS (abbreviated form of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Islamic State) is a group of notorious terrorists that are infamous for causing terror attacks in India. In May 2017, they facilitated a low-intensity train blast in Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train at Madhya Pradesh’s Jabri railway station. It is unfortunate that the citizens of a secular nation make way for terror and havoc in the country.
A joint team comprising of Chennai Police and Rajasthan ATS was sent to detain the alleged ISIS operator from his cellphone shop in Burma Bazaar locality. Haroon was arrested, based on the information acquired during Mohammed Iqbal’s interrogation. Iqbal is a resident of Mylapore.
This morning, after the police detained Haroon, he was sent to an undisclosed location for further interrogation. Meanwhile, the cops are exploring his bank accounts to check the flow of money to the terror nexus.
Just last month, the anti-terrorism unit in Rajasthan arrested a lieutenant colonel for extorting money from job applicants. The army officer was allegedly involved with a gang that extracted money from army aspirants looking for placement in the defense wing.
Likewise, in the first quarter of the year, the anti-terrorism squad arrested professors and students involved in Rajasthan university paper leak scandals. And now, Haroon’s arrest is one of the biggest successes registered in the name of Rajasthan ATS. It’s likely to give us an insight into the nexus of ISIS recruits operating in India.
