New Delhi: Kashmir separatist leader Asiya Andrabi dismissed the allegations that the three Hyderabad youth who allegedly wanted to join ISIS were planning to meet her.
According to an exclusive interview to India Today, Chief of Dukhtaran-e- Millat, Andrabi said she had visited Hyderabad when former SIMI Chief Syed Salahuddin died last year.
“Mohd Abdulla Basith, Maaz Hasan Farooq and Syed Omer Farooq Hussaini had no direct connection with Andrabi, nor did she know them. After reaching Srinagar they wanted to meet her using their uncle’s name and seek her help to cross the border and reach Jalalabad in Afghanistan,” a senior officer of the special investigation team of city police said.
The three cousins were arrested on Saturday for allegedly planning to join jihadi terror groups, months after they were put under watch for being influenced by online ISIS propaganda.
