An Indian national from Madurai is under the terror scanner in France for allegedly scouting recruits for the Al Qaeda. He is also being investigated for his contacts in Pakistan which he is said to have visited often and, of late, for his alleged links with the anti-Shia terror outfit, Jundullah, in Karachi. This group has been designated a foreign terror organisation by the United States. The accused, Mohammed Niaz, is said to be in his 30s and has been working as a software professional in France for many years. He, however, holds an Indian passport and visited India some six months ago to look up his mother. Itâ€™s reliably learnt that Indian authorities, too, had Niaz under watch during his month-long stay in India. He is believed to have moved around extensively in south India but security agencies did not find anything â€œalarming or suspiciousâ€ against him here. The conclusion was that he probably just came to look up his mother.
