The sensational news of three persons, including two minors, being detained for suspected ISIS links was a false alarm, confirm police.

Police clarified that they were detained were from Bangladesh, and were questioned for staying illegally with forged documents.

Cyberabad police commissioner Sandeep Sandhya clarified that the detainees did not have any links with the terror outfit ISIS, Deccan Chronicle reported.

Even the Uttar Pradesh police denied reports of them coming to Hyderabad to question them.

Earlier on Saturday, there was a flutter, when news broke out that the police have detained three persons including two minors for suspected ISIS links. It was also reported that even the U.P police questioned them in an undisclosed location for their suspected role in a terror plan in Uttar Pradesh.

The illegal residents were picked up from their home in Sun City, Bandlaguda in Hyderabad.

The detained were identified as Abdul Qayum and his two sons. Preliminary inquiries revealed that Qayum had come to India in 2009 on a Bangladeshi passport and continued to stay in Sun City, despite the expiry of his passport.

He also obtained Electoral Photo Identity Card (EPIC) and other Identity cards for himself and his family. Using the forged documents, he also constructed a home worth Rs 50 lakh, reported The New Indian Express.

Police are probing how he forged these documents.

Speaking to TNIE, Qayum’s lawyer, Khalid Saifullah, said, “Qayum has come to the city from Dubai 10 years ago. A few days later, some police officials went to his house and checked his passport and told that everything was clear, but yet they detained the trio.”
