 Four Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists who were arrested in Ahemdabad earlier today wanted to teach a lesson to Jews, Christians and members of the Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, said the Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad on Monday.

The Gujarat ATS said that, as per the examination of the recovered items from the four ISIS terrorists belonging to Sri Lanka, it has been revealed that there is evidence showing their commitment to “join the proscribed terrorist organisation Islamic State (IS), follow the path shown by Abu Bakr Baghdadi and teach a lesson to the attackers who commit atrocities against the Muslim community, as well as to teach a lesson to Jews, Christians and members of the BJP-RSS”.

The four accused have been identified as Mohamed Nusrath, Mohamed Faris, Mohamed Rasdeen and Mohamed Nafran. “All are citizens and residents of Sri Lanka,” ATS said.

The Gujarat ATS added that recovered items also revealed that four ISIS terrorists had conspired to carry out a terrorist attack at some place in India under the banner of the Islamic State (IS) and they would arrive in Ahmedabad.

“Mohamed Nusrath is also holding a valid visa of Pakistan,” the anti-terror agency added.

A pink parcel containing pistols, ammunition, and one black-coloured flag was also recovered from their possession.

Gujarat DGP Vikash Sahay said that these four terrorists had boarded an Ahembdabad-bound flight from Chennai. “The arrests were made after analysing the information and list of passengers coming from south”.

“All four of them are completely radicalised by the ISIS ideology and they are going to come to India to commit a terror attack. As per the information, they were going to reach Ahmedabad on May 18 or 19 either by railway or flight. Teams were formed and strategy was created based on the information received. Passenger lists of trains and flights coming from the south were analysed. All 4 of them were travelling from Chennai to Ahmedabad on the same PNR no. through an Indigo flight. Verification was done in Colombo too for confirmation,” Gujarat DGP said.
