NEW DELHI: In the wake of reports that ISIS was trying to lure Indian youths, government today said it is closely monitoring the activities connected with the dreaded terror outfit in the country and taking necessary action.

"The matter is closely being watched by the concerned agencies. Whenever required, action will be taken," Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

He was responding to a question on deportation of four Kerala youths from United Arab Emirates for their alleged links with ISIS.

"We will take action at an appropriate time," he said.

Asked about reports of a Delhi girl planning to join ISIS, Rijiju said government has taken note of the issue.

"We have taken note of it. The agencies have taken certain action and I believe those are right action," he said.

On September 15, UAE deported four Indians suspected to have links with ISIS and it is expected to send back the same number of people soon.

About a fortnight ago, the UAE had sent back a 37-year-old woman, Afsha Jabeen alias Nicky Joseph, who was allegedly involving in recruiting youths for ISIS.

Meanwhile, reports suggested that father of a Delhi girl has approached the National Investigation Agency saying that his daugther was inclined to join the ISIS and suspected that she had been radicalised while studying in Australia.
