Pune, 12th August 2023: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has secured seven days of custody for Shamil Nachan, an accused arrested in connection with the Pune ISIS module case, according to a statement released by the agency on Saturday.

Shamil Nachan, the accused, will remain in NIA custody until August 18. The NIA had presented him before the court following his arrest, with a request for his custody.

Investigations have revealed Shamil’s involvement in terrorist activities starting from April 2022. However, the court noted that he had provided a false mobile number while appearing before the court, casting doubt on his statements.

Initially, the NIA had requested 15 days of custody for Shamil Nachan, the accused.

Shamil Saquib Nachan, arrested on Friday by the NIA, was actively engaged in promoting the terrorist activities of a designated foreign terrorist organization. His arrest marks the sixth in this case by the NIA.

Residing in Padgha, Thane, Shamil Nachan was implicated in the fabrication, training, and testing of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) for potential terrorist actions.

“Nachan collaborated with five other accused, including Zulfikar Ali Barodawala, Mohammed Imran Khan, Mohammed Yunus Saki, Simab Nasiruddin Kazi, Abdul Kadir Pathan, and some other suspects,” stated the NIA.

Among these individuals, Imran Khan and Mohammed Yunus Saki, affiliated with the ‘Sufa terrorist gang’, were on the run, listed as ‘most wanted’ by the NIA for their involvement in an explosives recovery case in Rajasthan last year.

Operating from a residence in Kondhwa, Pune, these members of an ISIS sleeper module assembled IEDs, conducted bomb training, and organized a workshop to manufacture explosive devices. They even carried out a controlled explosion to test their creations.

NIA’s investigation into the ISIS Pune module case, initiated on August 3, uncovered plans to commit terrorist acts aimed at disrupting India’s peace and communal harmony.

“Their intentions were to wage a war against the Government of India in line with the ISIS agenda,” the NIA stated.

ISIS, also referred to as Islamic State (IS), Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Daish, Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP), and other aliases, has been pursuing an anti-India agenda by inciting terror across the nation through violent activities.
