A conversation on facebook on the ISIS operatives in India  read “7 kalash rakh do”  which has been decoded by CIA  and shared information with the Indian intelligence agencies interpreting as ” ISIS to carry out terror strikes in 7 places  .”

With the assistance of CIA, National investigation agency  arrested Akhlaq ur Rehman,one of the four arrested over the Haridwar plot . CIA  had intercepted a Facebook communication from an IP address in the Islamic State with Akhlaq and interpreted the coded message as an order by ISIS from Syria  to bomb seven places in India

Simultaneous raids  were conducted on Friday  in four states of Karnataka, Telangana Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh leading to the arrests and detentions.

The terror module had formed Janood-ul-Khalifa-e-Hind , with similar ideologies to that of ISIS. Mumbai resident Munabeer Mushtaq had allegedly designated himself as ‘amir’ or head of the organisation which was tasked to carry out blasts at various installations in the country besides attacking some foreigners, ministry sources said.

The arrests have come a day after police nabbed an Al Qaeda operative Abu-al-Sami from Mewat in Haryana. Sami, who belongs to Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, has reportedly provided some important details  to the intelligence agencies.

The Delhi Police on Sunday said that after several round of talks with the farmers groups, it has permitted the tractor rally inside Delhi on January 26.

Police has said that the barricades would be lifted at Singhu, Tikri and Gazipur borders on January 26 after the Republic Day parade is over and the farmers would be allowed to enter upto 100 kilometers within Delhi with their tractors in a circular path on the routes discussed with the farmers.

The route specified is from Singhu Border to Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar, Kanjhawala, Bawana to Auchadi. From Tikri border, it will be to Nangloi, Najafgarh, Jharoda, Dhansa, Badli and the KMP and from Gazipur border to Apsara border to Hapur Road.

“We have told the farmers that the rally would start once the Republic Day parade is over. We expect with the cooperation of the farmers the rally would be peaceful,” Special Commissioner of Police, Intelligence, Deependra Pathak, said.

However, the police said that they are on alert after intelligence inputs that various Twitter handles operating from across the border are active to disrupt the rally on January 26.

“According to our intelligence input, 308 Twitter handles have been generated from Pakistan to disrupt the rally to create disturbance. We are also concerned about the security of the rally given the threat perception,” he added.

Meanwhile, several batches of farmers from Punjab and Haryana set out on their tractor-trolleys and other vehicles to take part in the proposed tractor rally on January 26 in the national capital. Tractor-trolleys have now become a common sight at the Singhu border as the farmers have started bringing in the tractors to the protest site from villages in Punjab for the proposed rally.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and other states have been protesting at multiple border points of Delhi at Singhu, Tikri and Gazipur borders since November-end. They are demanding a repeal of the three central farm laws passed by Parliament in September last year.
