A local court here today allowed 10 days police remand (up to November 6) of the two terrorists linked with ISIS who were planning to attack a religious place in Ahmedabad belonging to Jews community.
Ubaid Mirza, an advocate by profession in Surat and Kasim Stimberwala, a native of Ankaleshwar who worked as a medical lab technician, were arrested by the Anti Terrorist Squad of Gujarat police yesterday.
The ATS and special operation group of Bharuch police produced the duo in the court of ADJ M P Mehta here and demanded 14 days remand for further interrogation but the court allowed only 10 days of police custody for the purpose.
The duo had joined the ISIS supporters groups on social media (Facebook, Whatsapp, Imo and twitter) created by one Shafi Armar, a wanted accused of serial blasts, since 2013-14. In 2015 they had provided accommodation and financial help to the four people caught from India-Bangladesh border while they were trying to go to Syria to join ISIS.
They were also planning to carry out an attack on a Synagogue (the religious place where people of jew community assemble to pray) situated in Khadia locality of Ahmedabad.
Several incriminating items including pen-drives, OTG’s, mobile phones have been recovered from them.
