COIMBATORE: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) sleuths on Saturday morning started searches in 22 places in Coimbatore, three places in Chennai and four places in Hyderabad.
The searches are being conducted in a case related to an ISIS module.
Jamesha Mubeen, an ISIS follower who drove a car with an improvised explosive device, died in an explosion in front of the Kottai Sangameshwarar Temple in Eswaran Kovil Street at Ukkadam in Coimbatore on October 23, 2022. Investigations revealed that he was studying in Kovai Arabic College at Kuniyamuthur in Coimbatore. More than 25 others were studying with Mubeen in the college a few years ago.
