30-year-old Mohammed-Inamul-Haq was arrested by UP ATS for radicalising youths on social sites, reports Times of India on June 18, 2020 –

“Acting on classified inputs of intel agencies, the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad arrested a 30-year-old Mohammed-Inamul-Haq from Riyaz colony, in Bareilly.

Inamul is accused of radicalising youths to indulge in terror activities. Cops also recovered mobiles and SIM cards from his possession. UP ATS ADG, DK Thakur said that the intel agencies on the basis of scanning profiles of different people found Inamul’s profile to be suspicious.

“He used to send messages to others on Facebook of planning terror activities and ‘Jihad’. His WhatsApp and Telegram also have many objectionable messages circulated against the interest of the countries,” said the officer.


Thakur also said that police have recovered a cache of literature on international terror organisations like -Al-Qaeda. UP ATS also said that anti-India conversations were retrieved from his WhatsApp and telegram messaging apps.

A source in the UP ATS also said that he had also saved a photo of slain Hindu leader Kamlesh Tiwari with a message in Arabic. Tiwari was killed by radicals last year.

Police also said that Inamul was produced in a court and taken on ten-day remand for further questioning. “It is important to know how Inamul got radicalised and also his other associates,” said the ADG.”
