The National Investigating Agency (NIA) on June 12 carried out searches at various places here following reports that some people are in touch with those involved in the Easter day church blasts in Sri Lanka.

Raids were conducted by a team of NIA sleuths at seven places in the city on the basis of inputs that certain people are reportedly in touch with those behind the Easter day attacks on social media, police sources said.

The searches were a continuation of those conducted here and in Kerala in connection with an ISIS terror module, they said.
