New Delhi: A former army officer has sought help from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) after discovering that his daughter was planning to join the dreaded terror outfit, Islamic State (ISIS).
Intelligence Bureau officials have been trying to dissuade the Delhi University graduate after the NIA sought help in dealing with the issue reported The Indian Express.
The woman in her mid-20s planned to convert to Islam and then make her way to Syria through Australia.
The matter came to light when the former army officer found internet communications between his daughter and alleged ISIS recruiters on her computer.
Former Home Secretary L C Goyal had chaired a meeting last month attended by police chiefs of 12 states and top intelligence officials to formalise strategies to tackle ISIS radicalisation of Indian youth.
