NEW DELHI -- In a disturbing revelation, which uncovers the depth of Islamic State (IS) radicalisation in India, a girl in her mid-20s, who recently graduated from a premier Delhi University college, wants to reportedly join the terror group.

According to an Indian Express report, her father, a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the Indian Army, has sought help from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) after he discovered that she wants to be a part of the IS.

For the past few weeks, officials of the Intelligence Bureau in Delhi have been trying to convince the girl to abandon her plans of joining IS.

According to the report, the girl graduated from Delhi University and went to Australia for her post graduation. However, she was reportedly a "changed person" when she returned.

The matter came to light after the girl's father stumbled upon some internet communication linked to ISIS on her computer a few months ago. He suspected that his daughter is in touch with alleged IS recruiters and has planned to travel to Syria to join the outfit.

Intelligence Bureau sleuths have reportedly held a few sessions with the woman.

Recently, 10 young men from Kerala were deported from the UAE for allegedly indulging in ISIS propaganda. UAE authorities became suspicious of the group after monitoring their social media traffic.

The Government of India has been taking steps to stop the radicalisation of the youth by IS. Last month, former home secretary L.C. Goyal chaired a meeting of DGPs from various states on the strategy to tackle IS radicalisation.
