"So far, 67 youths, who were influenced by the ISIS, were arrested while planning to carry out terror attack," he had said.

In today's meeting, the Home Minister also raised the issue of crack down on NGOs saying that no bonafide NGO doing public service will have to face any kind of government scrutiny. But those NGOs which are allegedly trying to hamper development works or indugle in anti-national activities would not be spared.
