INDIA. Nagpur: On Thursday, March 23, 2023, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) searched three locations in Nagpur as a part of its ongoing investigation into the Gazwa-e-Hind case. It is related to the radicalization of impressionable youth through a variety of social media platforms for the purpose of committing violent terrorist acts.
NIA officials searched the homes of suspects involved in anti-national activities as well as social media sites that radicalize gullible youth.
According to the NIA, in the Phulwari Sharif investigations, “It is found that accused Margub Ahmad Danish, a self-radicalized man, was in contact with a number of foreign entities on the WhatsApp group “Ghazwa-e-Hind,” created by him.”
“The goal of this group was to radicalize vulnerable youth by glorifying terrorist acts and activities in Kashmir. Moreover, he had established the Ghazwa-e-Hind BD WhatsApp group, which promoted the violent takeover of India,” according to previous claims made by the National Investigation Agency.
On July 22 of last year, at Phulwarisharif Police Station in Bihar, the NIA first filed the Gazwa-e-Hind case.
The case was brought before the NIA Special Court in Bihar on January 6 of this year with a charge sheet submitted by the investigative agency against an accused.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted 15 raids earlier on March 15 in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, and other locations in connection with a case involving a plot to radicalize Union Territory youth and target members of minority communities, security personnel, and religious events and activities.
The plot was hatched by organizations with links to Pakistan that are prohibited from operating in that country.
