"Between April and June 2022, he was recruited as a suicide bomber by ISIS leaders in Turkey. The instructional classes were conducted through the Telegram app. It has also been confirmed that the information was transmitted through private meetings in Istanbul," the Russian security agency said in a statement.
"Subsequently, the man who was selected as a suicide bomber took a pledge of allegiance to the amir of ISIS. Thereafter, he was given the task of going to Russia, completing the required documents, flying to India and carrying out terrorist attacks," the FSB added.
The central government has declared the Islamic State (IS) and all its constituents as a terrorist organisation and included them in the First Schedule of the UAPA Act.
