Thiruvananthapuram: State Director General of Police T P Senkumar on Friday said that the allegations against two Keralites, who were deported by the UAE for 'endorsing' the ideas of Islamic State through social media, were not confirmed.
It has not been confirmed that the deported persons have any link with terror outfit IS, the DGP told reporters here.
However, he said a probe into the issue was on.
In UAE, a person would be under scanner if they react even though social media, he added.
The police chief was answering questions related to reports that two Keralities have been deported from UAE for their alleged link with IS recently.
To another question, he said an alleged threat made by V V Rajesh, a BJP leader, against police officers would be looked into.
Threats to police officials from political parties have always been there, and it is nothing new, he said.
Rajesh had warned that the police officials who favour CPI-M activists engaged in political violence would have to face consequences after their retirement.
