A MP NIA court places three people with suspected ties to ISIS in 7-day police detention

A special NIA court in Bhopal sentenced three people who had been detained by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on suspicion of having connections to ISIS to seven days of police prison on Saturday.
In late-night searches at around 14 locations in the Madhya Pradesh city of Jabalpur on May 26, the NIA had apprehended about a dozen people.
Syed Mamoor Ali, Mohammad Adil Khan, and Mohammad Shahid were reportedly placed in police custody till June 3 by special designated NIA court judge Raghuveer Prasad Patel after the agency requested their detention for more investigations.
With the arrest of the three individuals during a combined intelligence-driven operation with the Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) of the Madhya Pradesh Police, the Central Investigation Agency dismantled a terror cell with ties to ISIS.
At approximately 11 p.m., the NIA reportedly conducted a raid on a few apartments and offices in Jabalpur's Muslim-dominated Badi Omati neighborhood. Raids were also conducted in the town of Civil Lines.
NIA apprehended a prominent MP High Court attorney from the Badi Omati region, according to reports. Another individual, called Maksood Kabadi, was also apprehended by an NIA squad. According to accounts, Abdul Razzaq, a history sheeter, had his home raided as well.
Another top lawyer's home in the Civil Lines neighborhood was also searched by the NIA team, and he was given notice to appear for questioning. According to rumors, the attorney has previously represented mafia figure Abu Salem.
According to reports, the troops conducting the searches recovered firearms as well as offensive material.
The searches included over a dozen officials and over 200 police officers from Bhopal and New Delhi. The NIA and police completely sealed off the sites where raids were conducted.
A few days ago, 16 young people were detained by the Madhya Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (MPATS) on suspicion of having ties to the extreme Islamist organization Hizb-Ut-Tahir (HuT). Investigations had shown that there may have been linkages between HuT members and the foreign nations where financing was coming from.
As a result, the MPATS recently turned over the investigation of that case to the NIA.
