New Delhi, June 14:The National Investigation Agency says that the mastermind of the Sri Lanka bombings could be linked to at least 3 cases that are being probed in India.
The revelation came in the wake of the NIA conducting raids at several locations in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday. The NIA also went on to add that the Coimbatore module has more members and is found to be very similar to the ISIS operations in Kerala. Both modules had planned on carrying out attacks in South India similar to the Easter bombings, the NIA also said.
New Delhi, June 12: The raids continued in Tamil Nadu and the National Investigation Agency is tracking the roots of the Islamic State in the state. It is a well know fact that the first recruit for the ISIS from India was from Tamil Nadu.
Haja Fakkruddin a resident of Cuddalore, it may be recalled had in early 2014 left for Syria through Singapore to be part of the ISIS. This was followed by a series of events related to the group and there was an image on the social media that went viral, in which several youth were seen posing with ISIS merchandise.
New Delhi, May 29:For the Intelligence agencies, the rate at which radicalisation has grown in states such as Kerala and West Bengal has been alarming. Several officials have in the past complained that the lack of a free hand and the immense politicisation of the issue had led to such a rapid rise in radicalisation in these states.
The minority appeasement has been one of the major reasons for these states becoming problematic. The same could be said about Tamil Nadu as well, where the first case relating to the Islamic State had been reported.
New Delhi, May 21:The National Investigation Agency on Monday conducted more raids in Tamil Nadu in connection with a case relating to the Islamic State.
The NIA carried out searches at 10 different locations in Tamil Nadu, during which the agency recovered a number of digital devices. The NIA also recovered 3 laptops, 3 hard discs, 16 mobile phones, 8 SIM cards, 2 pen drives, 5 memory cards, a card reader and two knives apart from a large number of incriminating documents.

New Delhi, May 11: For any successful operation against terrorists, the key is surveillance. An officer would need to be at least ten steps ahead in order to prevent a terrorist from acting. India’s success rate against the Islamic State has been particularly good so far.
