    The UAE has deported seven Indians due to their links with ISIL so far.

    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — The United Arab Emirates (UAE) government is likely to deport more Indians over their suspected connections to the Islamic State jihadist group, a source in the Indian Home Ministry told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    "United Arab Emirates' government is likely to deport more Indians on alleged links with the IS… So far, the UAE have deported seven Indians, including a woman, due to their links with IS," the source said.

    Earlier in the day, another source in the ministry confirmed to Sputnik that Indian intelligence had detained four Indians, who had been deported from the UAE for their alleged links to Islamic State. Those detained allegedly had been in contact with young people with the aim of recruiting them into the terrorist organization.

    Earlier in September, the UAE detained a group of 11 Indian nationals on charges of planning to join ISIL, as well as recruiting, financing and providing assistance to ISIL sympathizers.

    Last month, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi traveled to the UAE where he agreed with the UAR officials to counter terrorism together and to coordinate efforts to prevent radicalization.

    The Islamic State, currently in control of huge portions in Iraq and Syria, is known for its brutality and human rights abuses, as well as recruiting members from different parts of the world, particularly via social networks.
