NIA officials interrogate parents of IS Twitter a/c handler

Kolkata, Dec 14: Officials of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) today interrogated the parents of Mehdi Masroor Biswas, the alleged handler of the pro-Islamic State (IS) Twitter account, who was recently arrested in Bengaluru.

Family sources said that the NIA officials went to the resident of Masroor in the city and interrogated his parents. NIA officials, however, could not be contacted.


Karnataka Director General of Police L Pachau earlier in the day told reporters in Bengaluru that Masroor had 'confessed' that he was handling the pro-jihad Twitter handle '@ShamiWitness' and he was particularly close to English-speaking ISIS terrorists.
