India Today TV has exclusive access to a list of Islamic State (IS) recruits who fled the county to join the terror group but were tracked down and brought back to India. Most of them were in West Asia.
Forty-seven IS sympathisers, many of them headhunters sitting outside India were on the prowl to recruit vulnerable misguided Muslim youth. These recruiters were brought back to the country in the past four years as intelligence agencies zeroed in on them.
Many of them were key to tracking down hundreds of others within the country who wanted to go Syria.
Sources said many of these were handlers in touch with Indian youth, arranging finances and logistics to travel to Syria and there were others who were being brainwashed to carry out terror strikes in the country in the name of IS.
India Today TV has accessed a list with 101 names including terror operatives associated with IS, Dawood Ibrahim’s D Company, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Khalistani groups that were tracked down in countries like UAE, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, France, Singapore, Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar.
It was the IS operatives who topped the list and were traced mostly in West Asian countries and brought back to India since 2014.
While many were arrested and are facing terror charges, there were some who helped agencies with vital information to crack the IS outreach within the country.
Intelligence agencies with the help of their counterparts in these countries traced them and ensured they were brought back.
