ISIS Operative Sentenced to Seven Years in Jail by NIA Court

A special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court has convicted and sentenced Adnan Hassan, an operative of the banned global terror group ISIS, to seven years in prison. Hassan, who was arrested on January 29, 2016, due to his affiliation with ISIS, received his sentence from the special court in Delhi on Monday, according to an official spokesperson from the federal agency.

Hassan has been penalized with a seven-year jail term and a fine of Rs 4,000 under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. His conviction is linked to the ISIS Abu Dhabi module.

The case revolves around a criminal conspiracy involving Indian nationals Sheikh Azhar Al Islam Sattar Sheikh, Mohammed Farhan Mohammed Rafiq Shaikh, and Adnan Hassan. These individuals were found to be members of the proscribed terrorist organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), along with other yet-to-be-identified associates.

The conspiracy’s objective was to identify, motivate, radicalize, recruit, and train susceptible youths for the planning and execution of terrorist attacks, as stated by the NIA spokesperson. The agency initiated its investigation on January 28, 2016, following orders from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, invoking relevant sections of the IPC and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

The investigation unveiled that Hassan employed various online platforms and methods, including posts, news articles, comments, videos, images, and the teachings of Islamic scholars, to motivate individuals to join ISIS. Additionally, he provided financial support to accused individuals, including Abdullah Basith and other associates.

The chargesheet against Hassan was filed in the special court on July 25, 2016, based on the available evidence.

This conviction serves as a significant step in the fight against terrorism and underlines the determination of Indian authorities to combat extremist activities and safeguard national security.
