Mumbai, Dec 8: The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Friday registered a case against a Mumbai youth who allegedly fled from India to join the terror outfit Islamic State (ISIS). The case against Tabrez Noor Mohammad Tambe has been registered on a complaint filed by his brother.
The ATS states that 28-year-old Tabrez Tambe along with his friend Ali (30) went to Egypt on the pretext of looking for a job. Two days back Tabrez and Ali called their respective families and told them they had joined the terrorist group in Libya.
