The National Investigation Agency (NIA) special court on Thursday issued non-bailable arrest warrant against controversial preacher Zakir Naik for promoting enmity between groups on religious and racial grounds, as also accumulating funds in an illegal way for his NGO.
Earlier on April 13, the warrant was issued after Naik failed to present himself before the Enforcement Directorate.
It is believed that Naik is currently staying in Saudi Arabia.
He is said to have been inspiration behind last July's terror attack on an upscale cafe in Dhaka.
