Pune: NIA arrests renowned doctor in alleged connection with ISIS, ‘electronic gadgets recovered’

by Muslim Mirror Staff

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested Dr. Adnan Ali Sarkar, a renowned anaesthesiologist, for his alleged involvement in promoting violent activities of the banned terrorist group ISIS. This marks the fifth arrest in connection with the “Maharashtra ISIS module case” , as NIA continues its relentless pursuit of dismantling terrorist networks operating within the country.

The arrest of Dr. Sarkar, an esteemed physician with 16 years of experience in treating difficult airway and regional anaesthesia, came after a raid conducted by NIA sleuths at his residence in Kondhwa, Pune.

The central agency had previously apprehended four other individuals, identified as Tabish Nasser Siddiqui from Mumbai, Zubair Noor Mohammed Shaikh alias Abu Nusaiba from Pune, and Sharjeel Shaikh and Zulfikar Ali Barodawala from Thane, as part of their ongoing investigation into the case registered on June 28.

According to the NIA statement, the accused had conspired to promote ISIS terrorist activities, operating under various aliases such as Islamic State (IS)/Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL)/Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)/Daish/ Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP)/ISIS Wilayat Khorasan/Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham Khorasan (ISIS-K). The agency found several incriminating materials, including electronic gadgets and documents related to ISIS, during the raid at Dr. Sarkar’s residence.

“The material exposed the accused’s allegiance with ISIS and his role in promoting the outfit’s violent agenda by motivating and recruiting vulnerable youth,” the NIA statement said.

The investigations revealed that Dr. Sarkar, along with the other arrested individuals, was allegedly involved in a conspiracy to disturb the unity, integrity, security, and sovereignty of the country and wage war against the government of India as part of the ISIS conspiracy through the “Maharashtra ISIS module.”

The NIA’s intelligence-led operation and subsequent raids were triggered by information suggesting that the accused and their associates were recruiting youth and providing them with training in the fabrication of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and weapons. Furthermore, the suspects had exchanged materials, including “Do it Yourself kits” (DIY), for the manufacturing of small weapons and pistols.

Additionally, the accused had disseminated inflammatory media content, published in the magazine ‘Voice of Hind,’ to further the banned outfit’s agenda of terror and violence, all under the direction of their foreign-based ISIS handlers.

Officials at the hospital where Dr. Adnan Ali Sarkar worked praised him as one of the best doctors in his field. They revealed that he had been associated with the current hospital as a consultant, having previously worked with another private hospital.
