    On Wednesday, India's National Investigation Agency raided another suspected Daesh terrorist hideout after obtaining fresh leads from recently-arrested terrorists.

    New Delhi (Sputnik): India's National Investigation Agency raided a lodge on Wednesday in the city of Anantapur in southern India after extracting information from recently-arrested Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) suspects during an interrogation. 

    The NIA apprehended suspected ringleader Ebrahim Yazdani and another terror suspect while they were on their way to Anantapur.

    The NIA is trying to probe the arms supply angle in Anantapur as two of the Daesh operatives arrested last week by the NIA had visited Anantapur in order to procure arms. 

    The NIA team questioned the staff at the lodge where the Yazdani and his associate stayed after they had left to take delivery of arms and ammunition. The NIA is also trying to nab those whom the terror suspects had tried to contact to procure arms. 

    Earlier on Tuesday, the NIA had raided three premises in Hyderabad, including the house of the two terror suspects Yazdani and Musa. 

    "A Daesh-linked terror module being busted by the NIA in Hyderabad is a major achievement for the Indian security agencies. Now the NIA is trying to go deeper into the whereabouts of the terror suspects, how and from where they are getting arms and ammunition, who is financing them, etc." Defense and Security expert Qamar Agha told Sputnik. 

    He further added that, "The way things are unfolding, it seems clear that Daesh-linked terror suspects have formed a well-organized network and it's necessary to break such networks."
