Court sends two ISIS men to NIA custody

A Delhi court today sent two alleged ISIS sympathisers, arrested from Hyderabad, to ten days' NIA custody in a case of allegedly radicalising Indian youngsters for carrying out terror strikes on behalf of the banned international outfit.

The agency produced the accused before District Judge Poonam A Bamba and sought a 15-day remand for custodial interrogation of the accused.

The accused -- Hyderabad-based MohammedAbdullah Basith (24) and Mohd Abdul Qhadeer (19) -- were arrested by the agency to ascertain the details of an alleged conspiracy and their role in furthering the ISIS ideology to carry out terrorist acts in India.
