The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has revoked the passport of fugitive Islamic preacher, Zakir Naik, after he failed to respond to a show cause notice.

The 51-year-old is wanted by the NIA in connection with alleged terror funding cases, a Hindu report stated.

“The travel document was revoked by the Regional Passport Office of Mumbai after 51-year-old Naik failed to respond to a show cause notice issued to him for personal appearance by July 13,” unnamed NIA officials were quoted as saying.

The show cause noticed had asked Naik to submit reasons why his passport should not be revoked.
