For his claimed participation in collecting money from ISIS supporters in India and shipping it outside in cryptocurrencies, Mohsin Ahmad was detained on August 6.
Mohsin Ahmad was sentenced to 30 days of judicial detention by the Patiala House Court on Tuesday, August 16, following his arrest on August 6 for allegedly soliciting funds from ISIS supporters in India and shipping them abroad in the form of cryptocurrencies. This occurs a week after Ahmad was arrested and turned over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
On August 7, the NIA said that Ahmad had been detained for his alleged participation in ISIS’s offline and online activities. The organisation had said, “Ahmad is a radicalised and involved ISIS member. He was detained for his involvement in the fundraising for ISIS from supporters both inside and outside of India.”
During a search operation at Ahmad’s current home in New Delhi’s Japani Gali, Jogabai Extention, Batla House, the agency detained him.
The organization also disclosed that Ahmad transmitted money to Syria and other nations in the form of cryptocurrencies so that ISIS could carry out its operations there. The case is being looked into further.
