NIA arrests two in Hyderabad for aligning with ISIS 13.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The NIA on Sunday arrested two alleged ISIS sympathisers from Hyderabad. The Hyderabad-based youths, Mohammed Abdullah Basith (24) and Mohammad Abdul Qhadeer (19) were arrested for pledging allegiance with ISIS and planning to carry out terror attacks in India. Basith had undergone several rounds of deradicalisation over the last four years. He had made two previous attempts to join the ISIS, but was intercepted and sent for deradicalisation.

The NIA stated in January 28, 2016 that ...

Bombay HC refuses to grant interim relief to Zakir Naik 20.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Bombay High Court today refused to grant relief to controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, who is facing charges of inciting communal disharmony and under the UAPA, observing that he did not show any interest or desire to help the probe agencies. A division bench of justices RM Savant and Revati Mohite Dere was hearing a petition filed by Naik seeking a direction to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to submit reports on the probe carried out by them against Naik. In the petition, Naik also sought direction to the Ministry of External Affairs to cancel the revocation of his passport.

The petitioner is ensconced in Malaysia and is seeking a direction ...
