As per the initial reports, Mohammed Azarudeen is the leader of the module and has been maintaining the Facebook page named ‘KhilafahGFX’, through which he had been disseminating ISIS ideology. During Wednesday’s raid the NIA also uncovered PFI-SDPI link to the ISIS module and seized 14 mobile phones, 29 SIM cards, 10 pen drives, three laptops, six memory cards, four hard disc drives, one internet dongle and 13 CDs/ DVDs apart from one dagger, one electric baton, 300 air-gun pellets and a large number of incriminating documents from the houses and workplaces of accused persons.The NIA believes that the group was recruiting local youths through social media to join the Islamic State for carrying out terrorist attacks in South India especially in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The NIA had registered cases on May 30 against the six people following information that they were allegedly propagating the ideology of terrorist organisation ISIS/Daish on social media. All the accused whose residences and workplaces were raided were questioned by the NIA.The presence of Islamic State modules in the country is a serious cause of concern for the investigative agency. After losing ground in Syria and Iraq, the terrorist outfit has fixed its eyes on South Asia and has already been active in Bangladesh followed by Sri Lanka.Sri Lanka witnessed one of the worst terror attacks in the country after 250 people were killed in suicide bombings in the island nation. While Sri Lankan jihadist group National Thowheeth Jama’ath (NTJ) carried out the attack the IS claimed responsibility for it. (Colombo Gazette) On Wednesday, raids were held in seven locations and one person Azarudeen, who is a Facebook friend of the Sri Lanka Easter bombings mastermind, Zahran Hashim, was arrested. A key suspect linked to Zahran Hashim has been arrested in Tamil Nadu as Indian investigators continued raids to arrest suspects linked to the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka.The National Intelligence Agency (NIA) carried out fresh raids at three places in Coimbatore today (Thursday) at 4:30 am in the morning, Times Now reported.
Ceram, the international materials technology company, was chosen by Cenex to analyse the fuel integrity of Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) biomethane vehicle trial. Driven by a desire to produce a step change reduction in fleet carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, CCE contracted Cenex to evaluate and compare the emissions, fuel consumption, economics, reliability and operability of a 26 t Iveco Stralis gas vehicle with that of a diesel Stralis vehicle. The trial vehicles – one operating solely on biomethane gas, and one diesel powered – were highly comparable. Both were new registrations at trial commencement and met Enhanced Environmentally friendly Vehicle emission standards.The vehicles’ performance was evaluated through a collaborative assessment project, which included Cenex, the UK’s centre of excellence for low carbon and fuel cell technologies, Iveco, the truck manufacturer and Gasrec, the fuel supplier.Ceram has extensive experience in evaluating biogas for use as biomethane, and was therefore chosen to analyse the quality of the fuel and integrity of the gas supply chain. The analysis confirmed a high methane content and low levels of contamination throughout the fuel supply chain; the fuel exceeded the quality levels required by the vehicle manufacturer. Stuart Watson, Ceram’s Organic Chemistry Delivery Supervisor, commented: “CCE are re-using waste and reducing their carbon footprint. Through anaerobic digestion, waste products have been transformed into biomethane which is used as a fuel for their vehicles. By taking an innovative approach, CCE have demonstrated the potential of biomethane as a vehicle fuel for other industries. We are pleased our analysis has helped them to do this.”Ceram is an independent, international materials technology company that focuses on innovation, sustainability and quality assurance of materials. Headquartered in Staffordshire, UK, and with approved laboratories around the world, Ceram solves product and process challenges across a range of materials to help clients improve performance, comply with regulations and develop their sustainability performance in order to gain a competitive advantage and increase profitability.
