Anti-terror probe agency NIA on Wednesday said it had conducted searches at 43 locations in Bengaluru city, including four offices of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) – the political wing of the Popular Front of India (PFI), in connection with its ongoing investigation in the case of rioting and violent attacks at DJ Halli and KG Halli police stations in the capital city of Karnataka on August 11, this year.

Officials in the agency said during searches the NIA sleuths seized incriminating material relating to the SDPI/PFI as well as certain instruments for attacks like sword, knife and iron rods.

“The cases pertain to large scale rioting armed with lethal weapons causing injuries to police personnel, destruction of public and private property including DJ Halli and KG Halli police station buildings and public and private vehicles. The riot led to fear and panic in the nearby areas and was intended to cause terror in society,” the NIA said in a statement.
