October 27, 2008 14:18 IST
In a startling disclosure, the youth who was arrested in Kannur district of Kerala [Images] for acting as 'recruiting' agent to a Kashmir-based terrorist outfit has confessed that he was instrumental in handing over youths for terrorist operations.
Faisal, who is lodged in the central prison in Kannur following his arrest on October 25, revealed that he had recruited a few hands from Kerala's Malabar region and taken them to places like Hyderabad where terrorist outfits held training camps, a senior police official said on Monday.
"We are yet to make a final assessment on how many persons got recruited by Faisal," Prince Abraham, member of the Special Squad investigating Kerala's links with terrorist outfits in Jammu and Kashmir [Images] told PTI.
The exact number of people handed over to the terrorist outfits would be clear only after detailed investigation, the senior police official said.
