There were reports that they used to circulate pamphlets in Tamil to “radicalise” youngsters and form their own module inspired by the global terror front.
Police had also registered an FIR against them. In the FIR, it was mentioned that the trio was “inspired” by ISIS and have been constantly watching the videos of the terror outfit.
“Moreover, the trio has been working overtime to create a wedge between sections of the society by creating a fear psychosis in the city by killing people in terror attacks,” the FIR reportedly reads.
