BHOPAL: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested one person after it conducted raids at two places in Madhya Pradesh. The detained person is identified as a bus driver from Bhind on suspicion of terror funding.
The NIA sleuths conducted searches at residence of Narendra Singh after series of foreign currency transactions were found in his and his son Jitendra Singh’s bank accounts. Narendra Singh informed cops that his nephew worked abroad and would send money to them for their household expenses.
Raids were also conducted Sendhwa- an area dominated by Sikligar community. Members of the Sikligar community in some states have been under the radar of security agencies as a section of them have been allegedly involved in illegal manufacturing and supply of illegal weapons.
Last week NIA conducted raids in Bhopal and Chhindwara and arrested 11 activists of radical Islamist group Hizb-Ut-Tahrir. Provocative literature, electronic gadgets and cash were seized from their possession. During the interrogation , it was revealed that the HuT members used ‘Love Jihad’ to recruit members.
The anti-terror agency in close coordination with state police forces conducted these raids at the premises and other places linked to suspects.
