Giving details about the investigation, Sadnandan disclosed that the three men had been deported to India by the Turkey administration after they were caught trying to sneak into Syria.

Sadanandan said:

Midhilash Munderi, Razaq and Rashid Munderi are the men who were arrested. They all hail from Kannur district.

The police said that all these men, aged between 23 and 26, had completed a rigorous training program that stretched for three months in Istanbul before they were given the mission to cross over to the Syrian side and carry out terror activities.



Besides the three men arrested, the police is of the view that there are two more persons who are allegedly associated with the terror outfit. They are said to be absconding.

Kannur police, after presenting them before a local court, intends to carry out a custodial interrogation to unravel the operative IS cell activities.

The local media reports that these three men belong to Chakarakal and Valappattanam regions of Kannur district. The police has been keeping a close watch on all those who left Kerala a few months ago.

It is to be noted that it is not the first time that Keralites have been found to be associated with terror groups. In October 2016, five suspected Islamic State sympathizers were arrested by NIA after they held a meeting in Kanakamala area of the same district. Later, another person from Kozhikode district was also arrested for suspected terror links .

The roots of Islamic State in Kerala first surfaced in 2016 when 21 people went missing from the southern Indian state to allegedly join the Islamic State terror agency in Afghanistan and Syria.
