Syria-based IS men were in touch with Hyderabad girl

NEW DELHI: In a first, the NIA chargesheet filed against Islamic State on Monday reveals that a Hyderabad-based girl, sister of one of arrested IS operatives was part of its Hyderabad module and was in touch with senior leaders based in Syria as well. 

In fact, two Syria based leaders even wanted to marry her. The young girl, whose brother was arrested by agencies in December 2015, was an active member of Hyderabad IS module which had nine members, according to the NIA chargesheet. Times of India is withholding their identities as the girl was not charged by the agencies and was let off after counselling. The chargesheet, however, clearly mentions that she was part of Hyderabad module of IS. 

NIA probe has also revealed that one of the leaders based in Syria - Abu Zakariya, who was in regular touch with the module members including the girl, had even created a 'jehadi matrimony' website to arrange the marriages of IS operatives so that they can easily travel to territories held by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi-led caliphate. Abu Hamza Al Mujahir from Syria, was in contact with the girl and her brother (arrested IS member). "Mujahir wanted to marry her," says NIA chargesheet. 

It further says that her brother was in touch with Abu Zakariya, an ISIS operative in Syria. Apart from other members of module, Zakariya was also in touch with the girl and intended to marry her. "Zakariya used to have group discussions and propagate the ideology of ISIS," it says. 

The agency on Monday filed a chargesheet against three Islamic State operatives — Sheikh Azhar ul Islam, a resident of J&K, Adnan Hassan, a resident of Bhatkal, Karnataka and Mohammad Farhan Shaikh from Mumbra, Maharashtra. The girl's brother was in regular touch with Adnan Hassan, an old timer from Bhatkal, who was also in touch with Kalyan-based operatives Areeb Majeed and Fahad Sheikh (said to be killed in Syria).
