'ISIS sympathisers' taken into police custody

Three city-based youths, who were arrested last month for allegedly planning to join jihadi terror groups such as ISIS, were taken into police custody on Tuesday.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Hyderabad Police took custody of the trio -- Mohd Abdulla Basith, Maaz Hasan Farooq and Syed Omer Farooq Hussaini –all cousins, from the Chanchalguda Central Prison where they are currently kept as part of their judicial custody.

A local court had yesterday granted city police a seven-day custody of the three students, who were picked up from Nagpur airport last week and arrested by Hyderabad police on December 27.

"They were handed over to police this afternoon," a senior jail official said.
