Koppal (Karnataka): One more person has been arrested in Karnataka for alleged kinks with a banned terrorist organisation.

Shabbir, a fruits vendor, was arrested from Koppal district after getting leads from two other persons who were arrested a day earlier from Shivamogga district.

The persons who were arrested on charges of having links with ISIS last week had executed a trial blast on the banks of Tunga river in Shivamogga.

The police arrested Syed Yasin of Shivamogga and Maz Muneer Ahmed of Mangaluru on September 19.

Yasin, an electrical engineer, had purchased a gadget through an online store, and obtained a battery, wire and other material locally.

The accused have learnt bomb-making by watching videos shared by ISIS on their one-way communication channel Al-Hayat run on Telegram, a chat application.

Yasin and Muneer, who are known to each other since pre-university days, were radicalised and introduced to ISIS by Shariq who is absconding. The latter is accused in the objectionable graffiti case reported in Mangaluru in 2020.

The police came to know about Shariq’s role soon after Shivamogga clashes that occurred on August 15, Prasad said, adding that Zabiulla, who was accused in the stabbing case, was also radicalized by Shariq.

The investigation team has seized 14 mobile phones, one dongle, two laptops, one pen drive and a few other electronic gadgets.
