Wed, Jun 12, 2019, 08:01 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 12, Colombo: India's National Investigation Agency (NIA) Wednesday carried out searches at various places in Tamil Nadu following reports that some people are in touch with those involved in the Easter day church blasts in Sri Lanka, Press Trust of India reported.

Raids were conducted by a team of NIA sleuths at seven places in in Coimbatore 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 police said the searches were a continuation of those conducted in Tamil Nadu and Kerala in connection with an ISIS terror module. However, details about seizure of documents or devices were not available immediately, they added.

The IS had claimed responsibility for the serial bombings in Sri Lanka and around nine suicide bombers were involved in the attack. The Sri Lankan government has said that local terror group National Thowheed Jamath (NTJ) carried out the attacks with support from the IS.

Soon after the April 21 attack in Sri Lanka that left nearly 250 dead, India stepped up security in the southern states.
