The father of the suspected ISIS operative who was shot dead in Lucknow in an operation by the Uttar Pradesh Anti Terror Squad, declined to accept the mortal remains of his son, news agency ANI reported on Wednesday.  Saying that it is not in the “country’s interest”, he said the family wouldn’t accept the body of a terrorist. “Two months back he left home after I beat him up for not working. He called last Monday saying he’s got his visa and will be leaving for Saudi,” Sartaj, the father of the suspect said.

Mohammad Saifullah, the suspected IS operative was hiding inside a building in Lucknow’s Thakurganj while security forces conducted combing operations in the area after receiving intelligence inputs from their counterparts. Finally after all efforts failed to persuade the suspect to surrender, ATS units stormed into the residence he was hiding in and gunned him down around 2.30 am on Wednesday morning. Arms, ammunition, explosives, cash, gold, mobile phones, sim cards, walkie-talkies were among the things recovered by  the ATS from their hideout.

 Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chauhan confirmed that the explosion was an act of terror and the perpetrators sent a photograph to Syria  after planting the IED inside the train. Three suspects were picked up by the Uttar Pradesh Police from Kanpur in connection with the train blast. Police identified the three men as Mohammad Faisal Khan, Mohammad Imran and Fakhr-ul-Alam. They, along with Saifullah, were under intelligence surveillance for attempting to set up an Islamic State-inspired jihadist cell. They held back from making the arrests in the hope of gathering more information.
