New Delhi, Mar 08: Following the riots in Bengaluru in August 2020, investigators stumbled upon a larger modus operandi. These incidents such as the riots, hijab row and the violence around the Citizenship Amendment Act were not just stray incidents, but part of a well planned modus operandi.
On Monday, the National Investigation Agency conducted searches at the residence of one Talha Liyakat Khan in Pune. The case was registered following the arrest of a Kashmiri couple two years back for their alleged links with the Islamic State. On March 8 2020, the Delhi Police arrested Jahanzaib Sami Ani and his wife, Hina Bashir Beigh. The probe was later taken over by the NIA.
