In response to the alarming report, Minister of State for Home Affairs, Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary, defended the companies stating that, "All such components documented by CAR were legally exported from India to business entities in Lebanon and Turkey."
He also stated that, "There is no evidence to suggest direct transfer of goods from these companies to IS forces."
The investigation by CAR was documented in a report titled "Tracing the supply of Islamic State IED." They examined around 700 components used by Daesh to manufacture IEDs between 2014 to February 2016.
The findings showed that some of the components procured by Daesh operatives included detonators, detonating cords and safety fuses had been supplied by seven Indian companies.
The government did not say what action they would take, or if they would prohibit further sales of the deadly equipment to Lebanon and Turkey.
