New Delhi : The United States of America on Thursday declared an Indian-origin Islamic State operative Mohammad Shafi Armar as a global terrorist and imposed financial sanctions against them.

The sanction has been imposed as he and two others posed a “significant risk of committing” acts of terrorism that threaten US national security.

The state department described Armar as a “leader and head recruiter in India for the Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO) and Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) group, ISIS”.

“He has cultivated a group of dozens of ISIS sympathisers who are involved in terrorist activities across India, such as plotting attacks, procuring weapons, and identifying locations for terrorist training camps,” said a statement from the state department.
