A Bihar man who allegedly worked for ISIS has been charged by a terrorist organisation
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today filed a chargesheet against a resident of Bihar in a case connected to a conspiracy for the spread of the ideology and to raise money for the organisation and send the money to his handlers in Syria through cryptocurrency channels. ISIS is a terrorist organisation that is outlawed.
Mohammad Mohsin Ahmad, a resident of Patna in Bihar, has been charged with violating sections 17, 18, 39, and 40 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, as well as sections 120B and 204 of the Indian Penal Code. The chargesheet was submitted by the NIA before a Delhi special court.
On June 25 of last year, the NIA suo moto registered the case.
According to an anti-terror agency statement, investigations have shown that Ahmad collaborated with an ISIS handler and others to spread the ISIS doctrine with the ultimate goal of radicalising and recruiting Indian youngsters.
According to the NIA, Ahmad was also engaged in soliciting donations for ISIS from ISIS supporters in India and passing the monies gathered to his ISIS handlers in Syria using cryptocurrency networks. By doing this, Ahmad helped ISIS continue its terrorist operations.
