Aligarh: In a major development, the Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) of Uttar Pradesh has arrested six suspected ISIS terrorists from various parts of the state. Among those arrested are four members of the Students of Aligarh University (SAMU), a student organization of Aligarh Muslim University.
The ATS has revealed that the arrested individuals were planning a major terror attack in the country. Their links to SAMU have raised concerns about a potential terror network within the student organization.
According to the authorities, SAMU meetings have now become a recruitment ground for ISIS. Central agencies are reportedly keeping a close eye on SAMU in light of these revelations.
This revelation comes after the National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested Rizwan and Shahnawaz in connection with the Pune ISIS module case. Interrogation of these individuals revealed that several students from Aligarh Muslim University are involved in spreading anti-national propaganda on social media and are linked to the broader ISIS network across India.
