MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has detained a suicide bomber, a member of the Daesh* terrorist organization, who was plotting a terrorist attack against a member of India's leadership elite.
"Russia's FSB identified and detained a member of the Islamic State international terrorist organization banned in Russia, a native of a country in the Central Asian region, who planned to commit a terrorist act by blowing himself up against one of the representatives of the ruling circles of India," the authority said in a statement.
The detainee was recruited by one of the Daesh* leaders as a suicide bomber in Turkey, the statement added.

The FSB posted an interrogation video showing the suspect confessing that he was supposed to commit a terrorist act for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.

"In 2022... I flew to Russia, and from there I was to leave for India. In India I was to be met and given all the necessary things to commit an act of terrorism at the behest of the Islamic State for insulting Prophet Muhammad," he said.

In Turkey, the would-be-terrorist was conditioned both online on Telegram and during in-person meetings in Istanbul over a span of several months from April to June, the FSB said in a statement.
*Daesh is a terrorist organization banned in Russia.
