Mumbai: The NIA has filed a chargsheet against 22 year old Arib Majeed who along with four others had joined the dreaded global Jihadi outfit ISIS. NIA filed the chargsheet at the special NIA court in Mumbai.

The 8,000-page charge sheet running into seven volumes contains the statements of witnesses, his conversation in the chat rooms and his mobile phone records, the official added.

In January this year, a local court had allowed NIA to seek details of conversations and chats carried out by the alleged ISIS ‘recruit’ through telecommunication apps Skype and Tango headquartered in Luxembourg and California, USA respectively.

Investigators familiar with the NIA chargesheet told that Majeed, who was a civil engineering student and the only Indian member of IS who’s under arrest, was taken into custody by Indian security agencies when, after a spell of fighting, getting wounded and later recuperating, he was seeking travel documents in Turkey in November 2014. Majeed had entered the country from Syria. IS has control over parts of Syrian and Iraqi territory. Majeed, according to investigators, is unrepentant about his joining IS and, had he not been arrested, was ready to rejoin the terrorist outfit.
