A 35-year-old from Bhatkal in coastal Karnataka, who has been detained by police in Dubai for allegedly being a propaganda agent and recruiter for the Islamic State (IS), allegedly provided funding of Rs 50,000 to a youth from Hyderabad in 2014 so he could travel to Syria/Iraq to join the terror outfit, investigations by Indian agencies have revealed, reported The Indian Express.

According to investigators, Adnan Hasan Damudi, under detention in Dubai, deposited the money in the account of the sister of a Hyderabad youth, whom he was trying to attract to the IS. The Hyderabad youth was among four Indians who tried to go to Syria/Iraq to join the IS last year before being caught in West Bengal by the Hyderabad police. The four were allegedly waiting for help to cross over to Bangladesh when they were caught.
