Two persons have been arrested in Kerala for allegedly forcing a 24-year-old woman to convert and planning to take her to Syria as a 'sex slave' for IS terrorists.
The woman has accused her husband of hatching the conspiracy. He is suspected to be in Jeddah.
Meanwhile the two arrested have been charged under various sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and IPC.
The woman, a native of central Kerala, grew up in Gujarat was studying in Bengaluru, where she met Mohamed Riyaz in 2015.
They developed physical relations, but he allegedly recorded her without her knowledge and started blackmailing her.
She was forcibly admitted in a madrasa and forced to learn about Islam.
She escaped after marriage, but had to return to him after threats.
Afterwards, he behaved well for sometime, but then took her to Saudi Arabia and locked her up. Once, she heard Riyaz discussing plans to take her to the IS. She eventually managed a mobile phone and was helped by NRIs in her escape to India.
However, troubles weren't over for her yet. She was forcibly taken to a religious center in Paravur and tortured by Fawaz Jamal and Mohamed Siyad under Riyaz's instructions, she alleged.
She then sought an annulment of her marriage from the Kerala HC and a probe by the NIA.
Kerala police are meanwhile trying to contact Interpol and other agencies for Riyaz's deportation.
