The chargesheet filed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday against three Islamic State operatives from Maharashtra, Karnataka and Jammu and Kashmir has made a shocking revelation that the ISIS module busted in Hyderabad was funded by Adnan Hussain, a native of Bhatkal in Karnataka. 

The chargesheet filed by NIA stated that money has been sent from United Arab Emirates to India, Tunisia and Philippines. Moreover, Hassan has funded Hyderabadi youth who tried to flee to Syria, according to a Deccan Chronicle report. 

Earlier this year, the NIA arrested three suspects, who were identified as Azhar Ul Islam (24) from Ganderbal in Jammu and Kashmir, Adnan Hussain (36) from Bhatkal in Karnataka and Mohammed Farhan Shaik (25) from Mubra in Maharashtra. 

The three were nabbed by the NIA for carrying out terrorist and anti-national activities in India, prompting ISIS ideology and indoctrinating others for joining the Islamic State terror outfit. 

The NIA had on June 29 busted an ISIS module by detaining 11 youth during searches at 10 places in the old city of Hyderabad. Five of them -- Mohammed Iliyas Yazdani, 24, his brother Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani, 29, Habib Mohammed, 32, Mohammed Irfan alias Yaqais, 26, and Abdullah Bin Ahmed Al Amoodi alias Fahad, 30, were  arrested.
