This case was registered by NIA on 1 October 2016, based on credible information that certain youth had entered into a conspiracy and were making preparations to carry out terrorist attacks in India to further the objectives of proscribed terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)/ Daish. On 3 October 2016, searches were conducted at the house of Subahani Haja Mohideen in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu, leading to seizure of incriminating material indicating his travel to the theatre of conflict in West Asia and he was arrested on 5 October 2016.

Forensic examination of the clothes used by the accused during his stay with the Islamic State and the forensic medical examination of his body established that he was in the war zone in Iraq.

After undergoing religious and arms training with ISIS/ Daish in Iraq, he was deployed with ISIS’ military formation Umar Ibnu Khatab Khatiba, headed by the French national Abu Suleiman Al-Francisi, who was
later killed.

Subahani Haja Moideen was also associated with Pakistani national Mohammed Usman Ghani, while being in the Islamic State. Mohammed Usman Ghani was subsequently arrested and is now incarcerated in France, for his involvement in 13/11 Paris attacks of 2015.
