New Delhi, Aug. 11 (ANI): With the Mumbai Police probe revealing that a total of Rs. 60 crore was deposited in Zakir Naik's bank account in the last three years from three different countries, Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said the controversial Islamic preacher's suspicious activities will be revealed soon.

"There have been several revelations one after another about Zakir Naik.His activities are against the interest of the country. Agencies are working on this. I am sure his activities will be revealed soon," Naqvi told ANI.

As per reports, the money was transferred to five accounts belonging to Naik's family members.

The police are looking into the financial transactions of Naik and his NGO Islamic Research Foundation (IRF).

Earlier this week, the Mumbai Police submitted a report on Naik to the Maharashtra Government after finding him to be allegedly involved in unlawful activities with possible terror links.

Naik had come under the scanner of the Indian Government after reports emerged that two of the six terrorists, who killed 22 people at a posh Dhaka cafe in July, were allegedly inspired by his speeches. (ANI)
