[India] Oct 21 ANI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has requested Philippines to allow them to question suspected ISIS recruiter of Indian origin, Karen Aizha Hamidon, arrested there.

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) of the Philippines had arrested the female online recruiter, named in radicalisation of Indian recruits, two days back from Manila.

The investigating agency had last year sent letter rogatory (a judicial request) to Philippines seeking details and evidence on Hamidon.

She was also named in two chargesheets filed by the NIA.

The Indian agencies had last year found that Hamidon used social media to influence many Indians and recruit 'foreign fighters' from India and other countries.

Two Indian ISIS operatives had also claimed that they were influenced by Hamidon.(ANI)
