Singapore: A woman originally from India was among three Singaporeans arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for supporting the ISIS and terrorism-related activities, authorities said on Thursday.

Of the three, Adzrul Azizi bin Bajuri, 19, was issued with a restriction order, while Abu Thalha bin Samad, 25, and Munavar Baig Amina Begam, 38, were issued with detention orders, the ministry of home affairs said.

Amina, a housewife and a naturalised Singapore Citizen originally from India, is an IS supporter and harboured the intention to make her way to the conflict zone to join ISIS.

“She was radicalised to the extent that she was prepared to undergo military training and take up arms to fight for IS in the Middle-East if called upon by IS to do so,” the statement said. She shared on social media materials promoting terrorism.

This month, she was issued a detention order for a period of two years.

Of the two men, Abu Thalha was found to be a member of the terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI). He was educated in JI-linked schools and also underwent paramilitary training.

“In 2014, he took baiah (pledge of allegiance) and became a JI member,” the ministry said. 

Adzrul, a former full-time National Serviceman who served as a Logistics Assistant in the SAF, is a supporter of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, it said.
