ISIS ‘supporter’ had mobilised funds from India, China: Police

JAIPUR: Suspected ISIS supporter Mohammad Iqbal, who is in the custody of Rajasthan police, had allegedly mobilised funds from India and China for the terror organisation, police said today.

Iqbal alias Travel Haq had alleged transferred money from China and through hawala from India to Dubai, Additional Director General of Anti-Terrorist Squad Umesh Mishra told reporters here.

Iqbal allegedly used to transfer funds to IS operative Jameel Ahmed who was arrested by the ATS from Sikar in November last year, Mishra said.

His name cropped up during the interrogation of Jameel following which he was arrested by Tamil Nadu police earlier this month.

“Jameel and Iqbal were in touch on social networking sites. Iqbal used to transfer funds to Jameel who was based in Dubai. From Dubai, he further transferred the money to the IS in countries like Turkey, Lebanon,” Mishra claimed. (AGENCIES)
