The aim of the group was to recruit Muslim youths to work for the ISIS and commit acts of terrorism in India at the behest of Armar, who is based in Syria and is purportedly the media chief of the ISIS. In this case, the NIA had earlier filed a charge sheet against 23-year-old accused Naser Packeer, outlining his modus operandi in identifying, radicalizing, recruiting and sending Indians to join the terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
Earlier in the day, North Korea test-fired three ballistic missiles into the East Sea from its central western county of Hwangju. North Korea fired three missiles - two Scuds and a Rodong - on Tuesday, officials said . The missile tests are also viewed as perilous by Japan.

He urged his countrymen to observe "black day" on Tuesday to express solidarity with "Kashmiris who are facing atrocities at the hands of Indian forces".

But U.S. officials have been rattled by the extent of Turkey's response to the failed coup and say the relationship will now depend on how Erdogan pursues Gulen and how far the crackdown extends. Errol Mendes, a University of Ottawa worldwide law expert, said much is at stake for Western countries, including Canada, because Turkey is a key ally in the fight against Islamic militants in the Middle East.
It said the government would likely censor its citizens to prevent them from reading the documents, which WikiLeaks claimed were "on politics leading up to the coup". The UK Independent warns Erdogan is using the coup to "justify a purge of state officials and army officers who do not give him total obedience, opening the door for him to establish an all-powerful presidency while seemingly Islamising Turkish society to a degree not seen since the fall of the Ottomans".
