In a shocking report, the investigative agencies reveal that the equipment used by Ibrahim in Malappuram Katampuzha Pullat, who was arrested for running a parallel telephone exchange, could be supplied by Pakistani spy agency ISI. Equipment worth lakhs of rupees was seized from a parallel exchange run by him in Bangalore.
According to the Central IB, the ISI is behind this. According to Central IB, there are not eight parallel telephone exchanges in the country but more than a dozen in Noida and Kashmir alone.
Ibrahim said he had been called to the military base in Bengaluru, the Military Movement-Control Office and the Office of the Principal Defense Comptroller. Based on the information provided by him, parallel exchanges operating in Kozhikode and Thrissur were found. The same equipment of the exchange found in Uttar Pradesh was seized from these places. The investigation team has stated that it has links with IS.
Ibrahim, an active member of the Popular Front of India, is also accused in the 2007 attack on the Kottakal police station. Kerala and Karnataka Police, RAW, Military Intelligence, Central IB and NIA are conducting investigations in connection with parallel exchanges.
The Military Intelligence Unit in Kashmir was the first to find out that calls were being made to military bases in India using a parallel telephone exchange. Ibrahim was arrested by the South Indian Unit of Military Intelligence on the basis of this information.
