Islamic State link: Yasmin in Kerala Police custody

Police hope that her interrogation will provide a breakthrough in cases relating to the disappearance of 17 persons from Padanna and Thrikkarippur in Kasargod district.

Yasmin Ahmed, 29, who was arrested on Monday for her association with Abdul Rashid Abdulla, one of the 17 persons missing from the district, was on Friday sent to three days in police custody.

The police suspect that they might have fostered links with the Islamic State.

Yasmin was sent to police custody by the District Sessions Court here. She took her four-year-old son along with her.

The police are hoping that her interrogation will provide a breakthrough in cases relating to the disappearance of 17 persons, including pregnant woman and children, from Padanna and Thrikkarippur in the district over the last two months, Kanhangad Dy.SP K.K. Sunil Babu, who is heading the investigating team, said.

Yasmin, a native of Bihar’s Mauroni village, was rounded up in New Delhi, where she was residing in a rented accommodation at Jamiya Nagar in Okhla.

Yasmin, who worked along with Rashid in Peace International School at Kottakkal two years ago, confessed that the latter had sent internet messages from the Afghanistan capital Kabul.

The court asked the officials to produce her back on August 8.
