New Delhi : A three-member team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is likely to question Ahmed Murtaza Abbasi, the main accused in the Gorakhnath temple attack.

After interrogating the accused, the NIA team will prepare a case report which will be submitted to the Union Home Ministry.

Since Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is the head priest of the temple, the intelligence agencies and police are leaving no stone unturned to expose the entire conspiracy.

In this case, the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of Uttar Pradesh had summoned the father of the accused, Munir Ahmed Abbasi.

The ATS will record the statement of the accused regarding his illness and wrongdoing.

Police have found in the investigation that Ahmed Murtaza Abbasi was in contact with people from across the border who are members of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

Sources have claimed that he wanted to join IS.

He was also in touch with a girl and they used to chat via email. The girl allegedly living abroad wanted to meet Ahmed Murtaza Abbasi.

She told the accused that she wanted to come to India after which he transferred the money to her account.

Sources said, “The girl was in an IS camp. Ahmed Murtaza Abbasi sent money to his account thrice. He deposited Rs 40,000 in his account. The girl brainwashed the accused. Later he attacked the temple.”

After his arrest, Ahmed Murtaza Abbasi said that he attacked the temple in anger.
