Srinagar: A 23-year-old youth, who was arrested in Delhi after his arrival from Dubai for being a sympathiser of the Islamic State terrorist group, hails from Jammu and Kashmir's Ganderbal district, police said on Saturday.

"Azhar-ul-Islam, who was handed over with two others to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), belongs to Preng village of Ganderbal district, and his father is Abdul Satar Sheikh," a police officer told IANS in Srinagar.

Family sources told police Azhar had gone to Dubai in 2015 to work as a waiter in a hotel.

Police and intelligence agencies have been maintaining that the terrorist group has no presence in Jammu and Kashmir.
