[India], April 13 (ANI): A non-bailable warrant was issued by a court here on Thursday for the arrest of controversial preacher Zakir Naik.

The warrant was issued after Naik failed to present himself before the Enforcement Directorate.

The Enforcement Directorate claimed before the court that they had sent four summons to Naik to which there has been no response.

It is believed that Naik is currently staying in Saudi Arabia.

The Enforcement Directorate may now seek Letters Rogatory (letters of request) from a court in Saudi Arabia for judicial assistance in getting Naik back home for interrogation.

Naik is accused of promoting enmity between groups on religious and racial grounds, as also accumalating funds in an illegal way for his NGO.

He is said to have been inspiration behind last July’s terror attack on an upscale cafe in Dhaka. (ANI)
