Rajasthan ATS on Tuesday arrested a man from Chennai in connection with its probe into a case of funding the terror group ISIS.

Haroon Rashid, a businessman based in Chennai, was taken into custody by the Rajasthan ATS. After the initial investigation, he was taken to Jaipur by a private airline, said airport sources in Chennai.

Rashid's name was revealed by Jamil Ahmed, who was arrested in November 2016 from Sikar in Rajasthan, for allegedly arranging funds for the terror group.

Rajasthan Additional Director General of Police, ATS, SoG (Special Operations Group) Umesh Mishra earlier in the day said Rashid will be interrogated after bringing him from Chennai.

Earlier, the ATS had arrested Iqbal alias Travel Haq from Chennai in a money laundering case.

Iqbal used to allegedly transfer money to Ahmed in Dubai through the Western Union from China and via hawala transactions from India.
