The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has said that it will file a fresh request before the Interpol for issuing Red Corner Notice against controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.
An NIA official said, its previous plea was rejected on the grounds that it has not filed any charge sheet against Naik. The agency said that since a charge sheet has now been filed in a special court in Mumbai, it will move the Interpol for a Red Corner Notice against Zakir Naik.
The controversial preacher is being probed on terror and money laundering charges. He fled from India in July last year after one of the terrorists involved in an attack on a cafe in Dhaka, claimed he was inspired by his speeches on waging jihad.
