An accused in the Bengaluru riots has connections with an ISIS inspired group 'AI Hind'
The Bengaluru Police have detained a suspect in connection with the recent violence witnessed in Bengaluru who has links with the terror group, Al Hind, and the accused in the murder case of RSS activist Rudresh.
Samiuddin, 42, a resident of Nagawara, was detained by the police. Rudresh was hacked to death in October 2016 by two motorcycle-borne youths when he was returning home after attending an RSS event in Shivaji Nagar in the city.
Joint Commissioner of Police Sandeep Patil said one Samiuddin has been detained in connection with the DJ Halli incident. “On further investigation, it has been found that he was in touch with the accused in Rudresh murder case and Al-Hind members from the last few years,”
Al-Hind is an ISIS-inspired terror group formed by Mehboob Pasha along with Khaja Moideen and his associates, who were arrested in January this year. Al-Hind has been under the radar of the NIA for having connections with ISIS.
