Experts say arrest of ISIS twitter handler a wake-up call

New Delhi/ Allahabad, Dec 13 (ANI): Experts on Saturday (December 13) said the arrest of a man operating a pro-Islamic State Twitter account was a wake-up call and called upon investigation agencies to work along with neighbouring countries to fight militancy. Security Experts Praful Bakshi and Qamar Agha said that it is the failure of investigating agencies and a wake up call for authorities. Talking about the incident, cyber expert, Pawan Duggal, said that cyber terrorism was emerging as the biggest challenge. Mehdi Masroor Biswas's arrest at home came days after Britain's Channel Four identified him as the man behind "Shami Witness", the Twitter handle followed by thousands of people including most foreign fighters for the Islamic State.
