Terrorist with ISIS Link killed in Coimbatore
A gas cylinder blast in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore killed one person on Sunday. The cops identified the deceased as Jameesha Mubeen who was quizzed by NIA in 2019. During probe into the case, the cops recovered low-intensive explosive materials from his house. The police also uncovered a terror plot in connection with the case.
On Sunday, a 25-year-old terrorist was killed in a gas cylinder blast in Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore. Further probe into the case revealed a terror angle with links to ISIS. Meanwhile, the BJP targeted the ruling DMK over the matter and said it exposed “intelligence failure.”
BJP leader K Annamalai claimed that the Coimbatore cylinder blast was “an act of terror with ISIS links”. In a tweet, K Annamalai questioned the Tamil Nadu government over the blast and accused the DMK government of hiding the information.
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam minister V Senthilbalaji on Tuesday accused the opposition party leaders of “creating unrest” in Tamil Nadu after a political battle ensued over the Coimbatore car blast.
Reacting to the attack on the ruling party, DMK minister V Senthilbalaji stated that the wish of “foxes disguised as sheep won’t be fulfilled.” Without naming the BJP, V Senthilbalaji hit out at “those attempting to create unrest in Tamil Nadu”.
Talking about the government’s response to the incident, V Senthilbalaji said, “DGP immediately reached the spot as per the orders of Chief Minister. Police and government acted impeccably, immediate arrests were made making it sure that there won’t be any hassle for people to celebrate Diwali.”
He also warned that anyone who attempts to defame the state government institutions will face severe legal actions.
Moreover, CCTV footage recovered by the police added a fresh twist to the case. The footage showed four men carrying an item wrapped in a sack outside Jameesha’s residence on the day of the blast.
Further investigation in the case led to the arrest of five people from Coimbatore’s Ukkadam. They were arrested on the basis of the CCTV footage.
