Saif-ul-Islam Khilafati who was arrested in Karachi for luring people through social media to join Daesh terrorist group has told the investigators their social media network was being operated from near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, sources in the Federal Investigation Agency said.
According to FIA sources, Khilafati has revealed that the network was being run by another terrorist called Baba Jani.
He has also said that a special software was made to save them from being [traced and] arrested.
Sources also said that videos of murder and torture were also found from the arrest terrorist’s possession, which had to be uploaded on social media.
Khilafati, who was arrested on March 6 by FIA’s Counter Terrorism wing, belongs to Zhob Division of Balochistan and was operating the banned organisation’s social media section in Pakistan to target and brainwash the youth active on internet, FIA officials told Geo News.
He and another arrested before him, Khaleel-ur-Rehman, were brought towards social media by a person called Maulvi Noor Muhammad, as per FIA sources. The arrested terrorists used to work for another banned outfit, sources added.
The accused, who was operating over 50 social media pages to lure youth into joining Daesh, was presented in court later on March 6.
The judge approved his physical remand for two days. The investigation officer informed the court that the FIA will submit a final charge-sheet in the case after a forensic report is received.
