Bengal youth arrested for suspected IS links

Kolkata, March 17 (IANS) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a West Bengal youth over suspected links with the Islamic State (IS) terror group, an official said on Thursday.

The 19-year-old, a student of a private engineering college in Burdwan district, was detained and questioned by the NIA in February.
