NIA team raids residence of ex-Cong MLA’s son for terror links
Mangaluru: A team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted a raid on the residence of B.M. Pasha, son of three-time Congress MLA and writer the late B.M. Idinabba, for alleged terror links.
NIA sleuths conducted raids in connection with the disappearance of Idinabba’s granddaughter who is suspected to have joined the ISIS terror organisation with her family.
Two years ago, 17 persons went missing from Kerala and Idinabba’s great-granddaughter and her husband were also among the missing ones. She was married to an MBA graduate in Kerala, who did not return from Sri Lanka, where he was pursuing higher education.
It is suspected that he went to Muscat, Qatar to reach Syria and join ISIS. Since then his wife, the great grand daughter of Idinabba also went missing, sources said.
Kerala internal security division and intelligence agencies have taken up investigation along with the NIA in this case.
The raids were conducted in this backdrop on Idinabba’s residence where his son B.M. Pasha is residing. The sleuths questioned the family on their missing daughter, sources say.
As many as 25 officers conducted the raid and questioned the family.
