NIA searches 7 places in Coimbatore


The NIA on Wednesday searched seven places in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu including the residence of a social media friend of the Sri Lankan terrorist who masterminded the April suicide bombings in the island nation.

The searches are part of a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe into a new Islamic State module in India, officials said. An NIA official in New Delhi told IANS that the case was registered 10-12 days ago.

He added that one of the persons whose premises were searched was Mohammad Azharuddin, who was a Facebook friend of the mastermind of the Easter bombings that killed over 250 people in Sri Lanka.
