 Mangaluru Police Commissioner Chandra Shekhar informed that the local police had assisted the NIA in the operation as requested by the latter. He also requested the public to refrain from spreading rumours.

It has been gathered that NIA  had been keeping a watch on Huda and that he was one of the most wanted ISIS recruiters in the world.

The operation :
The operation took place at around 3.30 am when  as many as 75 police personnel including 25 NIA officers surrounded  Huda’s house and later entered the house. Huda was spotted speaking over phone and no sooner he saw the police he flung his cell phone which was eventually seized. Though Huda reportedly tried to escape,  he was unsuccessful ad was arrested after police grilled him for nearly 45 minutes.

A laptop, five cell phones, two pen drives and a few DVDs have been seized from the house apart from a few photos of PM Modi.

Huda was also active in social media and  hailed from Bihar. His family  has been living in Mangaluru since 25 years. Huda who studied at KPT later  joined an engineering College in Bengaluru to study chemical engineering but he dropped half way through.

His family sources said he was searching for a job and had even applied for a passport.

Huda’s father who spoke to media men, said they were unaware of  Huda’s activities but knew he used to be speaking over phone most of the time. He also claimed that his son was not involved in any illegal activity. Even his sister said he used to be on Facebook most of the time.

Meanwhile, it has been learnt that Huda told his mother  that he was “sorry” and he did a “mistake”  while he was being taken away by the police.

The owners of the building have to be careful before letting the house for rent/lease. Because if this is the case we will have to face a serious problem in future for the crime not done.
