High alert after two suspected ISIS militants enter Uttar Pradesh, duo last sighted in Siliguri

Uttar Pradesh, 05th January: The India-Nepal border is on high alert after two terrorists from the international terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) entered the state of Uttar Pradesh. Districts bordering Nepal including Maharajganj, Kushinagar and Siddharth Nagar have been put on high alert.
In a chilling turn of events, the two ISIS-trained terrorists were last sighted in West Bengal’s Siliguri.
As per the information, the terrorists, who have been identified as Khwaja Moinuddin and Abdul Samad, are believed to be in Uttar Pradesh. In September 2017, Khwaja Moinuddin was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) from Chennai. Moinuddin is associated with ISIS and has been active in south Indian states. On the other hand, Abdul Samad, who was active in south India, was arrested in February 2018. Samad is accused of providing Rs 3.50 lakh through hawala from a Gulf country to a Lashkar-e-Toiba linked terrorist, with links to Pune blast.
It is believed that both the terrorists can flee to Nepal from the Sonauli border of Maharajganj. Hence, a close watch has been issued for the arrest of these two in the Gorakhpur zone and the Indo-Nepal border.
