NEW DELHI:  A Hindu girl and the daughter of an ex-Army officer triggered an ‘alarm’ in the security establishment after threatening to join the IS since her family opposed her relationship with a Muslim boy.

“The NIA observed her social media accounts and her Facebook as well as Twitter posts to check if her threat of joining the IS was real and found that she was not showing any sign of empathy for the terror outfit. They told her parents that there is no need for de-radicalisation. However, the NIA roped in intelligence agencies to keep a watch on her offline activities,” a source said, adding that nothing objectionable was found in her behaviour offline and perhaps she had threatened her parents in anger as they did not approve her union with a Muslim.

“It is a very sensitive issue and could have been handled by the father in a more mature manner. But he panicked and approached his friend for help to scare his daughter. The move further involved the agencies making it a bigger case which could have serious repercussions if the identity of the person is revealed. She did not show any sign of radical views,” a source added.

Express had earlier reported that 30 IS sympathisers are under the scanner of security agencies.
