In a statement released on the 29th July, 2016, Zulfikar bin Mohamad Shariff was detained under the Internal Security Act.My only surprise is that it took so long for it to happen.I am quite certain that many wrote in about our miscreant, and he was on the radar for some time.
The following is the relevant portions of the MHA press release:

1.Zulfikar bin Mohamad Shariff (Zulfikar; Singaporean; aged 44), was arrested in Singapore and subsequently detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) in July 2016 for terrorism-related activities. Zulfikar had embarked on the path of radicalism as early as 2001 after reading jihadi-related material.
