The National Investigation of Agency (NIA) has arrested a Bengaluru-based hospital worker who was developing smartphone apps for the benefit of ISIS terrorists, ANI reports.

The shocking revelation came after a series of nabs by the national investigation agency starting with the arrest of an undercover terrorist couple in Delhi’s Jamia Nagar.

Kashmiri couple, Jahanzaib Sami Wani and his wife Hina Bashir Beigh, associates of the ISKP were charged for invoking the Muslim community to unite against the CAA bill and strike terror attacks within the country.

ISKP (Islamic State-Khorasan Province) is an Islamist terrorist group, part of the ISIS that is active in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

During further probe by the NIA, it was found another person named Abdur Rahman, who also happens to be an opthalmologist in Bangalore’s S. Ramaiah Medical College, had links with the terrorist couple from Delhi.

After an interrogation by the NIA, Rahman confessed he was conspiring with Jahanzaib Sami and ISIS to develop a secured mobile messaging platform to aid in ISIS terrorism, as per NIA in a statement.

He was reportedly in a process of developing a medical application to help the fighting ISIS cadres and also a weaponry-related application.

It also turned out, Abdur Rahman went for a visit to an ISIS camp in Syria in 2014 to treat the terrorists and returned back to India.

The busting of Rahman also led to the arrest of two others from Pune – Sadiya Anwar Sheikh & Nabeel Siddick Khatri “for being part of conspiracy to further the activities of ISIS/ISKP in India and carry out subversive activities in garb of CAA) protests,” TOI journalist Bharti Jain reported.

After Rahman’s arrest, his resident was probed by the local police where incriminating materials were found stores in digital devices.
