Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday attached assets worth Rs 18.37 crore of the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) and others in connection with its money-laundering probe against controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik. The agency issued a provisional order under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act attaching mutual funds worth about Rs 9.41 crore and five bank accounts containing deposits worth Rs 1.23 crore in the name of IRF. The order also attached a schoolbuilding valued at Rs 7.05 crore belonging to the Islamic Education Trust, Chennai, and a godown in the name of Harmony Media Private Limited worth Rs 68 lakh. The ED said it attached the assets “in view of their involvement in the case.” The NIA has asked Naik to appear before it on March 30 in a case filed under an anti-terror law. PTI
