Anti-Terror Squad of Gujarat arrested two brothers Wasim Ramodiya and Naeem who were in contact with the Deash operatives and were planning to attack religious places in the state of Gujarat.
They have been charged under the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Explosive Substances Act.
Wasim was working at a Rajkot-bases graphic designing firm after completing his Master in Computer Application while Naeem was with a ship recycling firm in Bhavnagar after completing his Bachelor in Computer Application course.
Police have recovered gunpowder, two face masks, battery used for making bombs and eight issues of Daesh mouthpiece magazine “Dabik” from the accused.
“We have been keeping a close vigil on the two brothers since last three months when we found that they are in contact with Daesh handlers through Skype, Telegram, Twitter and Whatsapp,” J K Bhatt further added.
According to police, the brothers were radicalized online and they had come into contact with the Daesh handlers based in Dubai since one and half years. They had also planned to flee to Syria and Iraq after carrying out lone wolf attacks in Gujarat.
