NIA Conducts Raids Across 7 States in Bengaluru’s Prison Radicalization Case

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids in 17 locations across seven states on Tuesday, March 5th, related to a 2023 case of radicalization of prisoners in Bengaluru by a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist. T Naseer, a life imprisonment convict in Bengaluru central prison and LeT member, allegedly radicalized several individuals within the prison, leading to their arrest by the Bengaluru City Police in July 2023. The case was later taken over by the NIA in October 2023, naming eight individuals, including Naseer, in its chargesheet. The raids follow an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast in Bengaluru’s Rameswaram Cafe on March 1st, which injured at least 10 people, with investigations ongoing.
