Signalling its growing concern over IS terror and radicalisation, the government has appointed the former Intelligence Bureau Chief Asif Ibrahim to a key post in the Prime Ministerís office. Mr. Ibrahim, who retired in December 2014, will be the PMís ĎSpecial Envoy on Countering Terrorism and Extremism,í with a charter to liaise with governments in West Asia, Af-Pak and South East Asia. As Director IB, Mr. Ibrahim started work on the governmentís new counter radicalisation strategy in 2014, which was triggered by the Islamic State takeover of parts of Iraq and Syria, after it emerged that at least a dozen men of Indian origin had joined the terror group. He is also known to have negotiated with the top leadership in Saudi Arabia and Malaysia on terror cooperation. Source: The Hindustan Times
