NIA conducts searches in Hyderabad

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today conducted searches at two locations in Hyderabad, in connection with an Islamic state module case. The police said that the raids which began in the morning were still underway.

In August 2018, the NIA had arrested two alleged ISIS sympathisers –Mohammed Abdullah Basith and Mohd Abdul Qhadeer — from the city as part of its larger probe into Indian youngsters being radicalised to carry out terror strikes on behalf of the banned international outfit.

“The fresh raids were being carried out in connection with this module after a supplementary charge sheet was filed against them in February this year and based on fresh inputs,” police added.
