After 12 hours of high intensity firing, Indian police killed a suspected terrorist of the Khorasan module of Daesh, also known as ISIS, in a case related to a low intensity train blast on Tuesday, making it the first Khorasan attack in India.
“The slain terror suspect belongs to the Khorasan module of the ISIS (Daesh) and was an active member. But, whether he has been indoctrinated or not is a matter of investigation,” said Anti-Terrorist Squad chief Aseem Arun.
Police officials are looking for two more suspects. The encounter took place in Lucknow, the capital of India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, which is in the process of electing a new government.
