KOCHI: The Islamic State (IS) terror network is spreading its tentacles in Kerala as also Tamil Nadu, among other regions in India as per intelligence reports. The brutal murder of a police officer, ASI Wilson attached to the Tamil Nadu police on the Kerala border the other day was done by a suspected gang of IS men, police say.

“The links between this gang and three terrorists of the IS module arrested in Delhi, who were planning explosions and killings in the national capital and Uttar Pradesh are clearly noticed,” a Delhi Police official has been quoted as saying.

IS, which originated in Iraq in the posst-Saddam period and extended its network to Syria, Afghanistan and even Pakistan in recent times, is now aiming to spread its network in India. Muslim-prominent areas are being closely watched by intelligence agencies, in this context. Notably, the church blasts in Sri Lanka some time ago, killing large numbers of innocents in coordinated blasts, had links to IS modules operating in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, it had been reported at that time.

IS aims at turning the entire world into an Umma (Muslim province). Its founder Abu Baker al Baghdadi had recently been exterminated by the US via a drone-strike in Syria.

There were also police reports in recent times about Islamic terror networks establishing links with Maoists; some arrests in this connection were made in Kerala as well.

It was on Wednesday last, around 9.30pm, that an unidentified two-member gang shot, stabbed and killed Wilson at Padanthalamoodu check-post at Kaliyikkavila, at the south-end of Kerala state. Two of the assailants have been identified as Abdul Shameem and Thoufeek. The arrests of their associates in Delhi were made on Thursday, which threw light on their plans to stage terror attacks in Delhi and UP, and on their association with the suspects in the Kerala border murder of Wilson.
