India: Authorities arrested six members of an ISIS-inspired group

They are accused of targeting public figures and locations ahead of the country’s Diwali festivities. The arrests occurred in the southern state of Kerala, home to the few Indian citizens who have left the country to fight for ISIS in Syria.

The Cipher Take: Had the plot succeeded, it would have been the first ISIS attack in India. So far, India’s national counterterrorism agency has been successful in preventing ISIS-inspired groups in the country’s south from carrying out successful attacks.
