A day after the arrest of six suspected Islamic State members from the state, intelligence agencies have now warned the Kerala government of threat to two high court judges and some politicians.

The NIA has filed a report in this regard to Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The names of those who face the threat is not known.

Kerala has become the centre of Islamic State recruitment. The elite investigation agency is probing the disappearance of 21 people from the state and suspected of having joined the barbaric terror group.

The six arrested on Sunday from Kozhikode and Kannur districts were allegedly plotting terror attacks across the country.

Authorities have identified a 30-member-strong group called ‘Ansar ul-Khalifa’ for actively recruiting youth for terror activities. The six arrested are part of this group.

Mathrubhumi reveals that the NIA sleuths had infiltrated this group. They succeeded in arresting the members of this group after the failure of one of their terror plans.

Quoting DGP Loknath Behara, reports say that state police has strengthened its vigil and will be monitoring the situation in cooperation with Central agencies.
