Armar is a native of Karnataka, India and is the terrorist organization’s chief recruiter in India. He has been blamed for cultivating dozens of IS supporters involved in building the group’s operations in the country.

Atar is a Belgian-Moroccan national and is the one for establishing IS network in Europe, responsible for the November 2015 Paris attacks and is also connected to the March 2016 Brussels attack.

Pedestrians jumped aside and were fortunately not injured.

Not only that, but security forces also found a rifle and bladed weapons in the car of the suspect, who tried to flee but was detained. It was concluded that the man was under the influence of something, possibly drugs, but authorities weren’t able to figure out the exact cause at the moment.

One of the yellow and white carriage of the train was flipped on its side, causing a decent amount of infrastructure loss due to track and cable damage.

Fortunately, no other trains were using the track along that route during the time and hence any collision was avoided.
