Gujarat ATS Team Sri Lanka Bound For Deeper Probe Into Arrest Of ISIS Terrorists

| Updated: May 29, 2024 17:38

The Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) is soon leaving for Sri Lanka to further probe the arrest of four ISIS terrorists at Ahmedabad airport.

Sri Lankan police have detained two individuals related to the case, while a third suspect, Osmond Gerrard, remains at large. Sri Lanka has declared Gerrard wanted and announced a $2 million reward for his capture.

Gujarat ATS thwarted a potential terror attack with the arrest of four Sri Lankan nationals at Ahmedabad airport on May 20. The apprehended suspects, identified as Mohammad Nusrat (33), Mohammad Farish (35), Mohammad Nafran (27), and Mohammad Rashdeen (43), are believed to be linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The arrests have taken a new turn with the discovery of objectionable materials at their residences. Mobile phones belonging to the terrorists have been seized and are currently under investigation by the ATS team. Preliminary findings suggest that they were in contact with a Muslim preacher Abu Pakistani and had spent 42 days with him for indoctrination.

Three dedicated teams from Gujarat ATS are actively investigating leads outside the state. Their efforts have revealed that Osmond Gerrard provided the four terrorists Rs 4 lakh and has been known to change his appearance frequently to evade capture. Acting on information from the ATS, Sri Lankan authorities detained two individuals, though Gerrard continues to elude arrest.

The investigation has uncovered that three additional individuals assisted the terrorists in their activities in India. The ATS is now focusing on these accomplices and examining the mobile phones of the arrested for further clues. Notably, it has been discovered that a weapon was delivered via drone over the Pakistan border in Punjab, adding a significant dimension to the case.

In their meticulous investigation, the ATS has analysed CCTV data from 78,000 vehicles near Chiloda, checking 13,000 vehicles for any leads. Additionally, three ATS teams have been dispatched to Delhi, Rajasthan, and Punjab to pursue various angles of the investigation.
