Mumbai: ED officials summon Zakir Naik's sister for questioning in money laundering case

Zakir Naik

NIA has asked Naik to join the probe at its headquarter in Delhi before March 14.

National Investigation Agency has issued a notice to controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik asking him to appear before the agency at its headquarters in Delhi on 14th of this month.

ED officials told India Today that out of the Rs 200 crore, Rs 50 crore came from the bank account of Zakir Naik's sister.

On Tuesday, the ED - the central agency that tracks money laundering - turned to his sister instead. ED officials are awaiting his response after serving the last summons and are likely to initiate further action against him next week. The notice was served to his brother Mohammad Abdul Karim Naik.

NIA and Mumbai police had also carried out searches at 10 places in the megapolis, including residential premises of some of the office bearers of a foundation run by Naik, which was earlier put on restricted list by the Union Home Ministry for receiving funds from overseas. After scanning the speeches for hours, the NIA found the material incrementing and the agency concluded that parts of Naik's speech could radicalise the young Muslims further adding that the speeches could be a threat to the national integrity of the nation.

Besides this, Naik is having close connections with Peace TV channel, Harmony Media Private Ltd, Longlast Constructions Pvt Ltd, Right Property Solutions Pvt Ltd, Galaxy Multichannel Network Pvt Ltd, Majestic Perfumes Pvt Ltd and Alpha Lubricants Pvt Ltd.

Thereby, she was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate.

They said the agency wanted to grill Noorani about the alleged fund transactions in her account and the firms associated with her.
