New Delhi, March 20: The National Investigation Agency on Monday issued a fresh summon to controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik asking him to appear before the court on March 30 in connection with the Dhaka attack.
Naik has been accused of inciting Muslim youths to become terrorists and attack a cafe in Dhaka last year.
The agency had issued its first summon last month asking Naik to appear on March 14, but Naik who is speculated to be hiding in Saudi Arabia didn't follow the order.
The 51-year-old physician-turned-preacher has been booked for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony. Sections of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) have also been slapped on him.
NIA had alleged that Naik incited Muslim youths to commit unlawful and terrorist acts. His NGO named Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) was closed over the allegations of being an unlawful organisation under the UAPA.
