Hyderabad: ISIS handlers have been distributing specific material on bomb making to Indian sympathisers for many months.
The chargesheet filed by NIA this year on the IS sympathiser from Karnataka revealed that the suspects had access to the Inspire magazine published from Yemen and the Mujahideen Explosive Handbook, which elaborates how to make bombs using kitchen and household articles.
According to the NIA chargesheet on Mohammed Sirajuddin, such materials were circulated in a Telegram group called Ghazwathul Hind (earlier named Hind Battle). Among the 353 members in this group, many were Indian nationals, presumably Hyderabadis too.
One of the posts appeared on this group of November 2, 2015 stated: “Magazine Inspire was published by Mujahed-een in Yemen for English speaking brothers where you will get to know the strategy of Mujahideen, making bombs using kitchen stuff etc. Till this date, 14 editions are available. We hope brothers, who are looking for Gazwathul Hind, can benefit from it,” the NIA chargesheet revealed.
During investigation into ISIS cases, NIA officials had found that most IS sympathisers had accessed to PDF copies of many extremist materials not only published by ISIS, but by al Qaeda too....
