The presence of the Islamic State group in India is insignificant, said Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday. 

The statement comes in the light of increasing concerns about radicalisation of Indian youths by Isis. 

Indian intelligence agencies have also issued recent warnings of possible Isis attacks in the country, while several Indians have travelled to Iraq and Syria to fight with the terror group. 

Singh had dismissed Isis influence in India earlier as well, saying it was not a cause for worry. 

Recently, Afsha Jabeen, who was deported from the UAE to India for supporting Isis and recruiting members online, revealed to the police she knew of at least nine Isis sympathisers based in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kerala and Jammu & Kashmir.
