On April 20, Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) in a joint operation with the special cell of Delhi police, Maharashtra ATS, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Punjab Police arrested three ISIS suspects.
The arrest came nearly a month after alleged ISIS terrorist Saifullah was killed in a police encounter in Lucknow.
The arrested men were reportedly part of an ISIS module that was looking for potential recruits in Bihar, UP, Rajasthan and Maharashtra.
The arrests were the result of simultaneous raids being conducted in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar following inputs about ISIS terror modules.
The security forces have detained six more people in this connection.
