ISIS recruit held at Pune airport

New Delhi (PTI): A suspected ISIS recruit was detained at the Pune airport today as he was leaving the country and flying to Dubai for onward journey to Syria.

Officials identified the youth as Raoof Ahmed, a resident of Bhatkal in north Karnataka.

Security agencies have been keeping a strict vigil after his name cropped up during internet chats with members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is being monitored by sleuths to look for possible followers of the terror group, active in parts of Syria and Iraq.

They said Ahmed was detained as the Union Home Ministry had issued a Look Out Circular against him sometime back.

At least 14 youths have been arrested early this year by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) as part of its probe on indoctrination of youths by the banned terror group.
