The NIA has carried out multiple raids in connection with Praveen Nettar case and is not treating it as a one-off case.
New Delhi, Sep 06: The National Investigation Agency conducted raids in 24 locations in Mangaluru in connection with the murder of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leader, Praveen Nettar.
The killers Zakir Savanur, Mohammad Shafeeq Bellare, Sheik Saddam Hussain Bellare and Mohammad Harris Bellare said that they committed the murder to cause panic and terror in the area. On July 26, three people came in a vehicle and killed Nettar outside his shop off the Puttur-Sullia Road at Bellare in Mangaluru.
The NIA has carried out multiple raids in connection with this case. Sources tell OneIndia that this is not being treated as a one-off case and it is important to unearth the larger conspiracy. The proximity of Mangaluru to Kasargod where scores of incidents of Islamic radicalisation have taken place is also something that would be looked into, the source further added.
