Islamic State sympathiser Musa planned an attack on Kolkata’s Mother House

Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], Dec. 25 : The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday said that Islamic State sympathiser Mohammed Musa was planning an attack on the Mother House in Kolkata to avenge the bombing in conflict ridden Syria and Libya.

According to reports, Musa wanted to attack the Mother House since the place witnesses visitors from the United States, Russia and UK and is, therefore, a soft target.

Musa, who was arrested in July 2016 by the state's Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for having links with the terror outfit, was later handed over to the NIA.
