New Delhi: A 32-year-old man with suspected ISIS links has been arrested by the Delhi Police’s Special Cell from IGI airport.

Shahjahan Velluva Kandy, a resident of Kerala’s Kannur, was arrested after the Indian intelligence agencies received an input from CIA on June 30.

Kandy was deported by Turkey police for travelling with a fake passport. Sources said he was planning to enter Syria through Turkey.

Investigations have revealed that this was Kandy’s second attempt to go to Turkey. In February, he went to Turkey from Chennai, also with a fake passport. He was deported after which he made another fake passport in the name of Mohammed Ismail Mohideen from Chennai. However, his plan was busted by the Turkish police.

The Special Cell also found hundreds of telegram IDs of ISIS sympathisers on Kandy’s mobile phone. He was in touch with several ISIS sympathisers in India and Syria through the Telegram application. The data from his phone has been sent for verification.

The police are also looking for the travel agents who helped Kandy get fake passports. A team has been sent to Tamil Nadu to nab the agents.

Kandy was arrested at IGI a week ago. Police said he was accompanied by another man.
