A 31-year-old man with alleged ISIS links was on Thursday arrested by Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).

The man, who is a resident of Parbhani district of Maharashtra, was in touch with another wanted accused Farooque who is based in Syria and was trying to influence youth through social media using different handles and profile IDs, reported ANI news.

Earlier in January, the ATS in a joint-operation with NIA arrested a Mumbai youth for his involvement with the banned terrorist organisation. The 33-year-old man had been unemployed since October last year and spent most of his time on the internet, combing through IS propaganda material.

More details awaited.
