Pune, 29th July 2023: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) made a significant breakthrough in its fight against terrorism by arresting Dr Adnanali Sarkar, an anesthesiologist at a renowned hospital in Pune.

According to the investigation, Dr Sarkar is allegedly the leader of the Maharashtra module of ISIS and has been involved in inciting and recruiting youth for the terrorist organization.

The NIA conducted a raid at Dr Sarkar’s residence in Kondhwa on Thursday, during which they seized a laptop, hard disk, SIM card, and documents related to ISIS. Preliminary investigations have shed light on his role in propagating the terrorist ideology and actively recruiting vulnerable individuals into the extremist group.

The actions of the Maharashtra-based group have been a cause for concern as they have been actively involved in recruiting youth for ISIS’s terrorist activities.
