Mumbai :  

The special NIA court here on Thursday issued a non-bailable warrant against the controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, wanted by the agency for his alleged role in a terror case.

The National Investigation Agency 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.

“Issue NBW against Naik,” said Special Judge V V Patil. 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.

Following the Dhaka attack, the NIA had registered a case against him and some officials of his organisation, Islamic Research Foundation, under section 153-A of IPC (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) and the UAPA.
