The NIA has filed a charge sheet against Zakir Naik.

Naik has been charged with inciting youths to take up terror activities, hate speech,and promoting enmity between communities.



India's security agencies had zeroed in on Naik after one of the men involved in the 2016 attack on the Holey Artisan bakery in Dhaka said he had been influenced by his teachings. 



The charge sheet is 4,000-pages long. 

Police said they would explore "all legal options which are available to us to bring him back so that he faces trial before court". 

Naik is currently abroad. He fled the country after news broke of the Dhaka terrorist's statement.
