BANGKOK – The Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) Region 4 is on a hunt for Indian fugitive terrorist Jaktar Singh Tara, who is believed to be traveling through Thailand.

The ISOC has instructed border control units to screen incoming visitors in a bid to locate Mr. Tara who escaped from an Indian prison and plans to travel to Malaysia via the South of Thailand. Indian authorities have recently met representatives of Thailand’s Defense Ministry over the matter.Pictures of Mr. Tara are on local police’s online wanted-list and security units in Sungai-Kolok are prepared to make an arrest as soon as a visitor’s appearance matched the description.

The fugitive is believed to be aided by the Islamic State movement. Once he passes through to Malaysia, it is reported that he would try to enter Pakistan to be reunited with other IS extremists.
