New Delhi, Dec 28: The National Investigating Agency will focus a lot of its resources in South India in a bid to fight the ISIS problem.

The problem persists in the South of India much more when compared to the North and this was even stated by the Director General of the NIA, Sharad Kumar who was at an event in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.


OneIndia [ISIS threat higher in South India, not Delhi] has written on several occasions that South India remains a favourite destination for the ISIS.

The Northern states face a bigger problem from the Indian Mujahideen or the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. The first known Indian, Haja to join the ISIS was from Tamil Nadu. The first time youth came out in open support of the ISIS by sporting t-shirts with the group's name was again from Tamil Nadu.

This was followed by the various incidents that have been witnessed in Telangana in the cases of Salman Mohiudin or Afsha Jabeen.

The recent deportations from the UAE have all been to Kerala. If one were to view these incidents, then it is clear that even if someone wants to carry out a strike in the name of the ISIS, the focus would be down South.
