Madhya Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS), Counter Intelligence Cell and Hyderabad City task force arrested 6 people for their links to Hizb-ut-Tahrir.
According to The New Indian Express, the agency has filed a case in Bhopal against a total of 16 persons, including the six arrested in Hyderabad. 6 people are identified as Mohammed Saleem, Abdur Rahaman, Mohammed Abbas, Shaik Junaid, Mohammed Hameed, and Mohammed Salman for their alleged links to the terror organization. Several areas including Golconda, Bada Bazar, Jagadgirigutta, Balajinagar (Jawaharnagar), and Anantagiri forest were visited to arrest terrorists.
It is shocking to see that tourist places like Anantagiri forest was the place where they underwent arms training. The agency seized various documents about links with Islamic radical groups during the operation.
Not just that but educational institutes were also visited as some of the accused were working in them. One of the accused was working in a company where one of them served as a cloud manager.
The authorities also took down the statement of two gun dealers in Nampally who allegedly sold firearms to two of the people arrested. On Tuesday, the six would be transported to Siddipet after learning that they called a meeting with people in a masjid.
