Security agencies are probing whether the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday multiple blasts had links with the Islamic State modules in Indian state Kerala.

According to sources nothing concrete has been found so far into the investigation and many detained suspects have been let off.

However, it is learned the IS cadres in Kerala earlier had shared posts of Aadil AX on Facebook. The account is suspected to be operated by a Sri Lankan terrorist.

The account named as Did You Know is equipped with posts about glorious past of Islam religion.

Meanwhile, it is also learned suspected mastermind Zahran Hashim was directly in contact with some of the IS sympathizers in the Indian states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu through social media channels in recent years.

The Malayali IS recruits had visited a Hadees study centre in the island country in 2016 and thereafter migrated to Afghanistan, where IS has strongholds now.

In October 2016 India arrested fifteen operatives affiliated to IS from Kanpur state. They were alleged plotting attack on Jews and several political leaders in and outside Kerala.

An IS cadre Subhani Haja Moideen was arrested by Indian investigating authorities in the same year from Tamil Nadu and he is alleged to have role in the 2015 Paris attack.

Besides these, several Muslim organizations in Kerala have condemned the Sri Lanka serial blasts in which about 350 people were killed and hundreds other injured.
