Islamic State (IS) has claimed that the suicide bomber who killed around 180 people at the Kabul airport on August 26 was arrested in Delhi five years ago and was deported to Afghanistan after being imprisoned for five years.
He is suspected to be an Afghan national. The new edition of the IS magazine Voice of Hind said: “By the grace of Allah, a soldier of the Khilafah, Abdur Rahman al-Logri, carried out an istishadhi (suicide attack) operation. The brother was arrested five years ago in India, when he had travelled to Delhi to carry out an istishadhi operation on the cow-worshipping Hindus in revenge for Kashmir.”
“But Allah had decreed otherwise, the brother was tested with imprisonment and was deported to Afghanistan. Staying true to his promise to Allah, the brother didn’t go home, rather carried out his operation, his heart filled with tranquility and pleasure,” it said.
