Afghan link had studied in Thane college



Mumbai:The Afghan national, who was the link between the four Kalyan youths who joined IS, and their Kuwaiti financier, had studied in a Thane college. Abdul Rehman Daulati (27), a suspected recruiter for the IS, earlier studied engineering in Kalsekar College. In October 2014, Kalyan's Bazar Peth police registered a case against four people, including Daulati, another Afghan national Ahmed Husseinzade, Kalyan-based fruit merchant Aadil Dolare and Govind Thapa, manager of Raja Hotel in Kalyan, for violating rules on a foreigner's stay in India. Police said the duo stayed in the lodge though their documents mentioned a different address. The probe was taken over by the ATS. The purpose of Husseinzade's entry into India is still not clear.
At the time of the FIR, police were unaware Daulati was an IS recruiter. His name cropped up again only after Areeb Majeed, a Kalyan youth who joined IS, returned to India and was arrested. Majeed told police Daulati gave them the number of Abdullah Hadi El-Enezi, a Kuwaiti who sent them money to reach Syria.
In 2013, Daulati came to Kalyan for a few days, married a 17-year-old girl from the area and returned to Afghanistan.The girl is in touch with her parents over phone, said an ATS officer and cops ruled out a human trafficking angle. “Importantly , he already has a wife in Afghanistan,“ the officer said.
Both the Afghan nationals had come to Kalyan on Dolare's invitation, who had given an undertaking stating they would stay at his place.
