Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday acknowledged the threat of ISIS in the nation, saying that India was on full alert regarding threats from the terror outfit.
Speaking to the media, Singh said, “India is aware of the looming threat by the ISIS and is taking precautionary steps. The world needs to come together as one to combat ISIS.”
However, Singh said that ISIS threat was not directed to any particular group of nations, but should be looked upon as a global challenge. The Home Ministry had recently released an advisory to all states, on the looming threat from the terror group, ordering a close watch on the people suspected to have ISIS links.
