Naik, who is facing probes for provocative speeches, inciting violence, spreading hatred, funding terrorists and money laundering, is believed to be hiding in Saudi Arabia.

NIA had filed a case against Naik, his NGO IRF and his close aides in November last year under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and the IPC.

On April 13, the warrant was issued after Naik failed to present himself before the Enforcement Directorate.

Naik had fled from India after some attackers in July 1, 2016 Dhaka attack claimed that they were inspired by him.
