PMLA case: Enforcement Directorate files case against televangelist Zakir Naik
The Enforcement Directorate filed a money laundering case against controversial televangelist Zakir Naik on Friday following an earlier FIR registered by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
The Islamic preacher has been out of the country since reports emerged that his sermons influenced a few Bangladeshi attackers, who targeted an eatery in Dhaka on July 1.
Bangladesh has banned Naik’s Peace TV, saying it incited the attack on a Dhaka cafe in which 22 people were killed. Naik's organisation Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) is also being investigated by the Mumbai Police over alleged foreign funding.
