Kerala: 3 men from Kannur arrested for alleged ISIS links”

Three youths from Kerala who joined the Islamic State and left the country to undergo training in Syria were arrested by the police in Kannur on October 25 after four months of police surveillance. Police said the three were recruited by a person in Kannur district only, and they went to Istanbul in Turkey in an attempt to reach Syria almost four months back. They have been charged under Sections 38 and 39 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), and their links with the banned organization has been established, said police.

Over the next few months, the police closely tracked their online activities. "We are probing for more details", Mr Sadanandan told media persons.

Police teams are trying to figure out how the men were recruited and what was the source of their funding.

Police also identified Manaf and Shameer of Valapattanam and Abdul Qayyoom of Mayyil as an IS fighter still in Syria. Conviction under this law invites jail term for a maximum of 10 years.

An estimated 100 Indians have left to fight for the Islamic State in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, many of them from Kerala amid concerns that an extreme form of Islam was taking root in the state.

"A case has been registered against them and the arrested suspects will be produced in the court on Thursday", he added. They include four women and three children.
