According to the Tweet from IANS, the source said that the team has gone to Bangladesh to question an Indian woman and the son of a Bangladeshi politician named Nafees. The NIA had recently questioned the woman through WhatsApp. The woman belongs to the family of a Chennai-based businessman.
 
 
The girl's father had initially complained with the Chennai Central Crime Branch in May last year, alleging that his daughter, who was studying in London, was radicalized and forced to convert to Islam. He had also alleged that his daughter was abducted from London and taken to Bangladesh by some Bangladeshi nationals.
 
Zakir Naik, who is wanted by the Indian enforcement agencies, and the hardline preachers of Pakistani origin based in the US, have been named as accused in the case.
