NIA court issues non-bailable warrant against Zakir Naik
New Delhi : Things are getting tighter for controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik. The special National Investigation Agency court in Mumbai issued a non-bailable warrant against Naik.
The preacher is wanted by the agency for his alleged role in a terror case.
The NIA had registered a case against Naik under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act last year.
It told the court that Naik didn't appear before it even after three summonses were issued and it would need to take Interpol's help to bring him back to India.
Last week, another city court had issued an NBW against Naik in a case of money laundering registered by the Enforcement Directorate against him.
The ED lawyer had said Naik was believed to be in the United Arab Emirates.
Naik, 51, left India last year, allegedly to evade arrest after some perpetrators of Dhaka terror attack claimed they were inspired by him.
