ISIS flag found tied to tree in Nalbari dist

4 May 2018

A flag with a written message 'join ISIS' was found tied to a tree in lower Assam's Nalbari district, police sources said today.
The flag was noticed by local people at Koihati on a tree in an agricultural field yesterday and they immediately informed nearby Belsore Police Station about it, the sources said.
Police removed the flag and launched an investigation into who may be responsible for it.
Stating none has been arrested so far, the sources said the flag was black in colour with 'Join ISIS' written in white along with some words in Arabic.
Earlier, on May two similar six IS NE flags were recovered in Goalpara district on a river bank near Goalpara town Police Outpost.
Police there probing into the issue stated that the flags may have been put up by miscreants to create tension among the people of the area.
Locals suspected 'IS NE' may be a short form for 'Islamic State North East' and international terror outfits could be active in recruiting people here into the ISIS and expand their bases in Assam and the North East region. (PTI)
