Amidst the growing attempts by ISIS to lure youths into its fold, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said the security agencies were capable of dealing with any threat posed by the terror group. “We have the capacity to meet any threat. We will face it,” he told reporter.
The Home Minister’s comments came when asked about the ISIS threat in the country. Last week, 14 youths were arrested by the NIA and other security agencies after they allegedly formed a module on the pattern of dreaded ISIS to carry out strikes at vital installations. The simultaneous raids were carried out in five states of Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh where the suspects were arrested. They were part of a group named ‘Janood-ul-Khalifa-e-Hind’ (Army of Caliph of India), a terror group which has almost similar ideologies that of ISIS.
