Ramanathapuram: Tamil Nadu Police arrested the suspected IS sympathiser from a fishing hamlet in Ramanathapuram. Accused, identified as A Shaik Dawood, 32, is reportedly linked to the murder of special sub inspector Y Wilson in Kanyakumari district, who was shot down on January 8. He was guarding the police check post close to Kanyakumari-Thiruvananthapuram national highway when the incident took place.
Police personnel found only gym equipment from the abandoned hamlet where he was hiding to avoid police apprehension. Ramanathapuram district superintendent of police RV Varunkumar told the media that Dawood had transferred funds to one of Wilson's alleged murderers, Abdul Shamin, via his father's name. Dawood is also allegedly linked with ISIS suspect Khaja Moideen, who ran Al-Hind trust, which radicalises youngsters in the name of Islam, the police said.
