Areeb, who has been in the custody ever since, had told sleuths during the interrogation that Al Enezi had sent $1000 to him and his three friends (also ISIS sympathisers) from Kuwait when they were in Iraq in 2014.

Areeb was arrested by the NIA in the last week of November 2015 upon his return from Iraq and is booked under Sections 16, 18 and 20 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and Section 125 of the Indian Penal Code.

Abdulla has admitted to supporting terrorist organisations and involvement in financing terrorism, after his return from Pakistan in 2013.
