    Mohammed Shafi Armar,most wanted a notorious Islamic State (IS) recruiter, originally from Bhatkal, Karnataka, have been killed in a U.S. air strike on Syria in the last couple of days.

    According to a senior intelligence official in New Delhi tracking developments on IS said that they had received the information from their American counterparts on Sunday night.

    “We are in the process of cross-verifying it on the ground by our men. From initial reports, he is, in all probability, dead,” said the official.

    Intelligence agencies are also monitoring pro-IS social media handles for confirmation from the IS side as well.

    Spot Lights:

    1. Mohammed Shafi Armar key man behind recruiting Indians for the ISIS Network
    2. Considered “Most wanted” & “extremely crucial” in building the terror network’s global bases
    3. Killed in a US airstrike in Syria last week as per US official report

    The sources said India was informed by American officials about the death of Mohammed Shafi Armar, a resident of Bhatkal in Karnataka, who headed and recruited Indians for the ISIS and its regional franchisee Jund ul Khalifa-e-Hind (The Army of the Indian Caliphate).

    The National Investigation Agency (NIA) considered Armar the brain behind the Islamic State’s online recruitment in India.

    “We have been informed about his death by the US. We don’t know where he was killed and exactly. We were told that he died in a US strike,” an official told.

    Armar recruited youngsters for the Jund ul Khalifa-e-Hind by radicalising them online and luring them to jihad. He earlier headed the Ansar-ul Tawhid fil Bilad al-Hind — “Supporters of Monotheism in the land of India” — a breakaway faction of the Indian Mujahideen.
