Hyderabad: A day after his deportation from Saudi Arabia, police is investigating if Syed Zakir Raheem, who was declared a fugitive in the case regarding the conspiracy to kill BJP leaders, has ISIS connections. Police said they are investigating if Raheem tried to recruit anybody for the ISIS. 

Police found that Raheem was still in touch with his relative and HuJI operative Farhat Ullah Ghori, who is now in Pakistan.  

 

Raheem fled to Saudi Arabia in 2004, and was working as an insurance agent there since 12 years. He also took his wife and kids to Riyadh, where he lived. When Ghori went to Pakistan with the help of terror outfits, Raheem stayed back in Riyadh. 

In 2004, a group of militants including Raheem, who were allegedly trained by the ISI, conspired to kill the then BJP MLA Indra Sena Reddy and Baddam Bal Reddy. Police arrested four people in connection with the case then, but the other suspects went absconding.  

Police said the militants found it easy to attack Indrasena Reddy as he sometimes had only minimal security. 

 

Following a land dispute between two communities, Indrasena Reddy had visited Moosarambagh to sort out the matter. This provided them a chance to watch his movements, officials said. 

Saudi officials said that Raheem was meeting ultra religious men at his home. The Saudis found it ‘unacceptable’ and gave him exit visa.
