Mumbai [India]: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) team on Saturday seized incriminating documents/files, electronic storage devices and about Rs.12 lakh in cash related to controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik and the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF).
A NIA spokesperson said that in order to assist the search team, a team of IT experts has been flown to Mumbai.
The Union Government had on Tuesday declared the IRF as an “outlawed organisation” under the anti-terror law for its alleged terror activities, following which the Maharashtra Government said it would keep a close eye on locals and organisations funding the IRF and would be treated as “anti-social elements”.
However, the IRF said it would be arguing before a Central government tribunal against the validity of the ban imposed on it and invoking of the UAPA. (ANI)
