Speaking to the Express News, Ismail confirmed that law enforcement agencies (LEAs) had taken him into custody to interrogate him. “They asked me about a few students after naming them to which I said that I go to the varsity for teaching and have no information on the students’ activities outside the institute,” he said.

It has not been ascertained as to why Ismail was taken into custody by the law enforcers or if he had connections with any banned outfits operating in the city.
