NIA carries out searches in Coimbatore
Coimbatore, Oct 31 (PTI) National Investigation Agency (NIA) sleuths on Thursday carried out searches at the houses of two persons in the city in connection with a terror probe, police said.

The searches were conducted on the premises of the duo as they had allegedly been in touch with people associated with a terrorist gang which conspired, collected funds and made preparations to carry out terror attacks in India with the intention of establishing Islamic rule, sources said.

A five-member team carried out searches in the house of Nissar in GM Nagar and Sauridin in Lorrypet in the city, police said.

The NIA had on September 21 conducted a search at the residence of a man in Tirunelveli district in the state for his alleged association with the terrorist gang.

Also, the NIA had on August 29 conducted searches across multiple locations in Coimbatore in connection with a terror alert issued to Tamil Nadu.

Earlier in July, the agency had conducted searches at 14 locations in Tamil Nadu as part of its probe into the ''Ansarulla'' terror module case. PTI NVM SS DV DV
