Three Hyderabad youth planning to join IS sent to jail

Hyderabad: Three youth from Hyderabad arrested at Nagpur airport two days ago while allegedly planning to go and join the IS were Monday sent to judicial custody for 14 days.

The youth, all in their early 20s, were brought back to Hyderabad and produced before a city court, which sent them to judicial remand.

Police claimed they confessed to have ‘jihadi ideology’. They have been booked under various sections of Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for conspiring and attempting to wage war against India and for criminal conspiracy.

Joint Commissioner of Police Prabhakar Rao said the youth were on their way to Kashmir and had decided to meet Asiya Andrabi, chief of separatist group Dukhtran-e-Millat to seek her help to cross the border. They were planning to go to Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Palestine.

The families of the three youth had lodged missing complaints at Chandrayangutta and Humayunagar police stations and on credible information, a team went to Nagpur and traced them at the airport.
