Funding for IS Indian
May 26, 2015, 7:44 am

The Indian authorities have published investigation reports about one of its citizens identified only as A. Majid after he allegedly received $1,000 from a Kuwaiti identified only as A.A. through the Western Union outlet in Kuwait, reports a local daily quoting India’s Hindustan Times.

Majid reportedly belongs to and has fought alongside the Islamic State or the so-called DAESH organization in Syria.

He was arrested in 2014 after he returned home (to India) from his overseas stint with DAESH and whisked away for interrogation.

The daily continued saying in May 2014, Majid left with three people to join to DAESH according to the Indian investigation authorities and then prepared a charge sheet against him. Reliable sources said Majid planned to join DAESH after seeing the videos posted on the social networking media. Before joining DAESH, the daily added, Majid contacted many persons from Turkey to Australia and Saudi Arabia, Iraq and the US until he was helped by two people — one from Iraq and the other from Turkey.

The daily added as soon as Majid landed in Iraq, he joined DAESH and a person identified as Prince Abu Mohamed Al-Iraqi took him and three others to the Syrian city of Al-Riqqa where the four received rigorous training in the manufacture of explosives.
