New Delhi, Apr 04: The number of COVID-19 cases in the country has doubled in the past three days and 25 per cent of them are related to the Tablighi Jamaat congregation. Between March 31 and April 3, the number of positive cases jumped from 1,251 to 2,547.
Statistics reveal that out of the 478 new cases that were reported in the past 24 hours, at least 247 are traced to the gathering at the Markaz Nizamuddin, which was attended by over 4,000 people.
New Delhi, Mar 31: The maximum number people who participated in the Tablighi Jamaat congregation at Nizamuddin were from Tamil Nadu. Officials while giving the state wide break up said that 510 were from Tamil Nadu, while 281 were from outside India.
The arrests of the ISIS operatives by the Delhi Police opened up a can of worms literally. The busting of this module led to the police finding that there were many operatives who were part of this network. And the police is talking of a pan-India network with its largest presence in South India.
The past week has seen plenty of development in South India regarding the Islamic State. The revenge attack in which a police officer was killed brutally by terrorists leaning towards the ISIS was yet another wake up call about how deeply infested the problem of terror and radicalisation is down South.
The police have arrested Towfiq and Shamim in connection with the murder of the special sub-inspector Wilson at the Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu. The two, said to be associated with the ISIS, were arrested from the Udupi Railway station in Karnataka.
Police sources told MyNation that this is a group operating in Tamil Nadu and its members are highly radicalised. The targeting of a cop has come as a shock to the force, since this appears to be a new modus operandi.
A major mystery has been solved and it was found that the Islamic State of Tamil Nadu was behind the killing of a special sub-inspector.
One Wednesday, the 57-year-old special sub-inspector was shot dead at a checkpost near Kaliyakkavilai in Tamil Nadu at around 9.30 pm. His body had stab injuries too and the police have identified the two killers as Abdul Shamim and Thowfic from Kanyakumari.

There have been a spate of arrests and all have been linked to the Islamic State. While in Delhi three suspects were arrested, in Gujarat one ISIS operative from Tamil Nadu was picked by the Anti-Terrorism Squad.
In this backdrop one must also note that earlier this week, the National Investigation Agency too had filed a chargesheet against several Tamil Nadu operatives, part of the Ansarullah, a group that is a proxy of the ISIS.
Hiding in the shadows of larger terror groups are the smaller ones in Tamil Nadu, who are part of the bigger plot to shape the Khilafat movement. There’s a lot to take after the NIA busted 16 Islamic radicals
A plot to establish Islamic rule in India through operatives in Tamil Nadu and the UAE has been busted by the National Investigation Agency.
The NIA named 16 Islamic radicals from Tamil Nadu and said that they were conducting religious classes, brainwashing youth and had planned on establishing Islamic rule in India. The case is known as the Tamil Nadu Ansarullah case.
