Islamic State module busted in Kashmir, had planned to attack Army camp; five arrested

Five members of the Islamic State of Jammu & Kashmir (ISJK), who had planned to attack an army camp in Kashmir valley, were arrested by the police from Bandipora district today.

Acting on specific input, the Bandipora district police arrested five terror associates of the ISJK or Wilayah-al-Hind, a regional branch of the ISIS.

While four terrorists belong to different places in Bandipora one is from Srinagar, reported IANS.

Incriminating material seized 

Incriminating material including matrix sheets, ISJK flags and ammunition has been recovered from their possession.

After the initial investigation, it was found that these terror operatives were carrying out a recce of an army camp and were planning to attack it.

The module was actively involved in recruitment in the Valley by motivating and radicalising youth to join their terror ranks and was also providing support to other terror groups.

Sources told IANS that the group was manufacturing flags of the ISJK in Chittibandy Aragam and they were also supplying them to their associates in Srinagar.

Meanwhile, the cops have registered a case under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act at police Station Aragam and are further investigating the case.

ISIS gained prominence in 2014

This is not the first time that ISIS has raised its evil head in J&K. The group gained prominence in 2014 after it started using social media to run their propaganda videos of barbaric executions carried out in the middle east.

Masked youth were frequently seen waving pro-Caliphate ISIS flags in downtown Srinagar and during stone-pelting after Friday prayers.

In 2019, an ISJK terrorist was killed by Hizbul Mujahideen following which the ISJK declared Pakistan-backed terror groups in Kashmir as traitors.

In an official announcement last year, ISIS acknowledged that it had set up its India branch “Wilayah-al-Hinda” after its operative Ishfaq Ahmad Sofi was killed in an encounter with security forces in South Kashmir’s Shopian.
