A special court in Mumbai on Thursday issued non-bailable warrant against Peace TV and Islamic Research Foundation founder Zakir Naik in a money laundering case. The warrant was issued over a plea filed by Enforcement Directorate. The NBW will be sent to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) which will send it to UAE for execution. Before court passing the judgment, Zakir’s lawyer made submissions before it and opposed the Enforcement Directorate’s application.
Venegaonkar had claimed that instead of appearing before the ED, Naik is trying to put pre-condition and dictate terms as to how his statement should be recorded. Naik had earlier sought time to comply with the summons, asking the agency to record his statement via video conferencing.
The ED had on Tuesday moved a plea in the special court seeking the NBW on the ground that Naik had failed to cooperate with the investigation. ED’s counsel Hiten Venegaonkar had said that despite issuing several summons, Naik had failed to appear before the agency.
