A five-member team from a French investigation agency Wednesday reached here to interrogate an alleged Islamic State terror operative in connection with the 2015 Paris blasts, and held discussions with the NIA, which will facilitate the three-day questioning session at a jail in Kerala.
He was arrested from Tamil Nadu in 2016 in a crackdown by the NIA with the help of central security agencies and other state police, foiling designs of ISIS operatives to target
some judges of Kerala and foreign tourists visiting the coastal state.
Subahani, picked up from Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, was
radicalised and recruited in ISIS through social media
platforms. He left India for Istanbul from Chennai in April
2015 on the pretext of performing Umrah--Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.
After reaching Istanbul, he had crossed over with other
people from Pakistan and Afghanistan to Iraqi territory under
control of ISIS, officials said.
