The probe agency said in a statement that it carried out the searches at the houses of three suspects—two in Kasaragod and one in Palakkad.

It said that mobile phones, SIM cards, memory cards, pen drives, diaries with handwritten notes in Arabic and Malayalam, DVDs and books of controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, besides untitled DVDs, CDs with religious speeches, books of Syed Kutheb were seized during the searches.

“Digital devices will be forensically examined and analysed,” the agency said, adding the three suspects are being questioned. PTI
