A joint investigation conducted by the National Investigation Agency and the Intelligence Bureau has found no evidence against Abdul Rauf Musa who was detained in Pune for alleged links with the ISIS.
After detaining him on the basis of a look out circular, it was said that he was being probed for alleged links with the ISIS and also certain financial activities.
However, after a thorough investigation, the agencies found no proof on him and let him go. Rauf a resident of Bhatkal was picked up at the Pune airport two days back.
A team of both the NIA and IB which questioned him at Mumbai found nothing against him following which he was let off.
Ran a mobile shop:
It was found during the questioning that Rauf ran a mobile shop in Bhatkal. He said he was going to Dubai as he had got a good job offer.
He also told the agency that he knew Shafi Armar because he too was a native of Bhatkal. Rauf however denied having any contact with Armar.
Rauf was being watched by the Intelligence Bureau. However, the suspicion on him was raised after he made a mention about a hawala dealer last year from Dubai.
When asked about this dealer, he said that he had just referred to his name, but had no dealings with him. He also said that he had no personal contact with this person either.
