The channels also urged the Muslims in India to learn from Saifullah and launch lone wolf attacks. Saifullah was tracked down to Lucknow following the train blast that took place in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. Following a 11 hour encounter, Saifullah was shot dead by the Uttar Pradesh ATS at Thakurganj near Lucknow.

Both cases have now been taken over by the National Investigation Agency. The NIA is probing to find out if there really was an IS hand in the blast. The Union Home Ministry has been cautious while blaming the IS for the incident. It is however suspected that the IS module based out of Afghanistan may have directed this attack. NIA officials say that the probe is on and it is too early to conclude which outfit may have carried out the train blast.
