The ISIS along with its local feeder outfits has drawn up a hit list of several persons, who have stood in their way.

These persons had held meetings in several places including at Maharashtra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. There are in all 11 persons who were part of this module and they had planned on launching violent Jihad nationwide.

    This module was, however, not trying to send any of its recruits abroad. They wanted to build a pan-India module and launch strikes at various places. The main intent was revenge killings and targeted murders in a bid to stoke communal tensions, the police say.
