Bhopal, July 5 :  Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav extended his congratulations to the police administration for the successful arrest of a terrorist associated with the banned organization Indian Mujahideen (IM) in Khandwa district. The suspect was allegedly planning a ‘lone-wolf’ attack on security personnel.

“The Madhya Pradesh government is alert against any act of terrorism. I want to congratulate the Police for arresting a terrorist from Khandwa. It is a big action. Madhya Pradesh is a place of peace and there is no place for any terror activity,” the Chief Minister told ANI.

CM Yadav emphasized that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, both the state and the country are well-prepared to confront and thwart threats from enemies. He praised the swift action taken to prevent a potentially significant incident in Khandwa.

“I hope that in any such incident, the government will play its role with full alertness and the police administration will be vigilant and alert in dealing with all such incidents by coordinating with all the systems. The arrest of the terrorist has also sent a message that the government is alert,” Yadav added.

The Madhya Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) arrested the terrorist, identified as Faizan (34), a resident of Kanjar Mohalla, Saluja Colony, in Khandwa district, from his residence on Thursday morning. According to Inspector General of MP ATS Dr. Ashish, the arrest was made as part of the state ATS’s zero-tolerance policy against terrorism and other anti-national activities.

A crime has been registered against Faizan under Sections 13 (1) (B), 18, 20, 38 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. Seized from his possession were Jihadi literature related to IM, ISIS, and other terrorist organizations, four mobile phones, one pistol, and five live cartridges. Membership forms of the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) were also recovered.

The Inspector General noted that Faizan was found in contact with members of the banned organization SIMI and was propagating the ideology of IM/ISIS through social media, including posts related to Indian Mujahideen on his Facebook account. He had also shared videos of Mujahideen training camps in Pakistan, speeches of terrorist leaders, and posts related to Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH).

According to the MP ATS, Faizan had planned to carry out a ‘lone-wolf’ attack on security force personnel and their families, for which he was monitoring them and collecting weapons by contacting local illegal arms dealers and individuals from outside the state. Further interrogation of the accused is underway to gather more information about his associates, the ATS added.
