A Delhi court on Friday sent the alleged arms supplier to the members of the newly found Islamic State module, "Harkat-ul-Harb-e-Islam".

Naeem, who was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday night from Uttar Pradesh's Meerut, was produced before the court.

The NIA informed the court that Naeem, 21, has been providing arms to the members of the new IS module.

The court then sent him to 10-day NIA custody.

On December 26, the NIA arrested 10 members, including its mastermind Mufti Mohammad Suhail of the newly found IS module from Delhi and different parts of Uttar Pradesh after carrying out searches at 17 places, who were allegedly planning to attack some political personalities and security establishments as well as crowded places in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR).

The counter-terror probe agency had carried out searches at 17 places -- six in east Delhi's Jafarabad area, six in Amroha, two each in Lucknow and Hapur, and one in Meerut.

The agency also seized a country-made rocket launcher, 12 pistols, 112 alarm clocks, 100 mobile phones, 135 SIM cards, several laptops and other electronic gadgets, besides 150 rounds of ammunition.

After the arrest of the 10 persons, the NIA also carried out follow-up searches in several cities of Uttar Pradesh to identify more suspects of the new IS module.

It also rounded up many people for questioning.

The NIA also seized 25 kgs of explosive material, such as potassium nitrate, ammonium nitrate, sulphur, sugar material paste, mobile phone circuits, batteries, 51 pipes, remote control car triggering switch, wireless digital doorbell for remote switch, steel containers, electric wires, knife, sword, IS-related literature and Rs 7.5 lakh in cash.

All the arrested members of Harkat-ul-Harb-e-Islam are now in NIA custody.

The agency had registered a case on December 20 under several sections of the Indian Penal Code, Explosive Substances Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
