Arrested members of IS Khorasan wing wanted to replicate Colombo Terror Attack in Delhi

The Intelligence Bureau and Delhi Police have uncovered a massive plot to replicate the Colombo-style Jihadist attacks in Delhi by a module of Islamic-State Khorasan Province (ISKP) after two members of the group were arrested on Sunday. As per a report by Times Now, the arrested members, who are a husband-wife couple, were planning to procure a potent chemical Triacetone triperoxide (TATP) for the purpose. The chemical is called the ‘Mother of Death’ by the Islamic State terrorists.

In April 2019, multiple blasts rocked Columbo, capital city of Sri Lanka, which left hundreds dead. The blasts took place in churches across Columbo, Sri Lanka’s capital, on Easter Sunday, which clearly meant the blasts were carried out to attack the Christians, the minorities, on their festival to cause maximum casualties.

Delhi : Couple with IS links detained for ‘inciting anti-CAA protests’

Jahanjeb Sami and Hina Bashir Beg

A couple from Kashmir with alleged links to the Khorasan module of the Islamic State were detained from southeast Delhi’s Jamia Nagar by Delhi Police on Sunday (8 March).

Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Pramod Singh Kushwaha said the couple, identified as Jahanjeb Sami and wife Hina Bashir Beg, was apparently instigating anti-Citizenship Act protests in Delhi and was trying to exploit the ongoing situation.

“The husband-wife duo, who were identified as Jahanjeb Sami and Hina Bashir Beg, were instigating anti-CAA protests in the area,” DCP (special cell) Pramod Kushwaha said. The Islamic State – Khorasan Province is the Afghanistan-based affiliate of IS.

The couple was detained in an early morning operation after inputs were shared by the Intelligence Bureau. A probe is underway and several agencies are questioning them, a senior official said.

Jamia and the neighbouring Shaheen Bagh in national capital’s Okhla have been witnessing protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act for over three months now. The uproar began after alleged police attacks on the students of Jamia Millia University on the night of December 15, 2019.

The CAA grants citizenship to Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Parsis, Buddhists, and Jains from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan till December 31, 2014. It has become controversial largely because it excludes Muslims.
