The National Investigation Agency (NIA) Monday filed a supplementary chargesheet in connection with a case that involved the radicalisation and recruitment of gullible youth by members of an extremist outfit to establish an Islamic State. The chargesheet was filed against two members of the Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HuT), an extremist Islamic outfit that is affiliated to ISIS.

As per an official of the NIA, the two operatives who have been named in the chargesheet include Bava Bahrudeen, 41, of Tiruvarur district, Tamil Nadu, and Ziyavudeen Baqavi, 40, of Thanjavur district.The original case was registered in Madurai, Tamil Nadu before it was taken over by the NIA in April last year.

As per the case diary, one Mohammed Iqbal had uploaded controversial posts against a community on his Facebook account “Thoonga Vizhigal Rendu is in Kazimar Street”.A chargesheet was filed earlier as well against the two accused in May last year.In the supplementary chargesheet filed by the NIA, it has been stated that the accused persons were engaged in radicalising and recruiting gullible youth to establish an Islamic State / Caliphate or Khilafah and enforce a draft constitution written by the radical Islamic preacher, Taqi al-Din al-Nabhani, the founder of HuT.

“Investigation revealed that accused chargesheeted today, Bava Bahrudeen and Ziyavudeen Baqavi, were organising meetings to recruit members and also conducting secret classes to indoctrinate, radicalise and motivate youth to work towards the establishment of Islamic State Khilafah by overthrowing the Government of India. They had also conspired to establish new cells in various districts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala through social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, etc. in order to spread the ideology of HuT.

The NIA stated that further probe into the matter is still continuing.
