NEW DELHI: The Intelligence Bureau (IB) of India has issued a warning regarding the infiltration of terrorists within the Kerala Police force. The IB has uncovered evidence indicating that some members of the Kerala Police are collaborating with terrorist organizations and leaking confidential information to them.
The IB has gathered information on police officers who have established contacts with terrorist groups such as the Islamic State and the Popular Front. In response to these alarming findings, the IB has recommended that immediate departmental action be taken against those involved in such activities.
Furthermore, the IB has extended its scrutiny to the cyber cell of the Kerala Police. Recently, a Sub-Inspector (SI) from the Kerala cyber cell was discovered to have links to terrorist organizations, resulting in his suspension. Specifically, Sub-Inspector PS Rijumon, stationed at the Kottayam cyber cell, has been suspended for divulging confidential information to members of the Popular Front terrorist group.
In response to this breach, the Ernakulam Range Deputy Inspector General (DIG) has taken decisive action against Rijumon, acting on the directives of the National Investigation Agency (NIA). Rijumon’s actions included sharing personal details of special investigation team officials who were engaged in the investigation of the banned terrorist group PFI.
