New Delhi, March. 1 (ANI): Asserting that the government has an effective mechanism to deal with terrorist funding and money laundering, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Tuesday informed the Parliament that all necessary measures have been taken to counter the threat posed by the ISIS.
In reply to a question, Minister of State for Home Affairs Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary stated in Lok Sabha that the National Investigation Agency, NIA, has arrested 24 accused from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Jammu and Kashmir so far.
The Minister also said the ISIS has attracted very few youth from India.
According to reports, ISIS funding in India is mostly through a self-financing mechanism. The hawala channel has also been used in one or two instances to raise funds. The ISIS uses various internet-based platforms to propagate its ideology. The Intelligence and Security agencies are closely monitoring the cyber space to identify potential recruits and keep them under surveillance for further action. (ANI)
