The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday conducted searches at two locations in Tamil Nadu in connection with two self-radicalised individuals who had extended support to LTTE, a proscribed terrorist outfit.

“They were engaged in manufacturing illegal firearms, ammunition and explosives with the intent to target commercial establishments and important leaders in Tamil Nadu,” the agency said in a statement.

The NIA is probing if the two accused who were part of the conspiracy of manufacturing the weapons had plans to join the LTTE.

The case was initially registered by the Tamil Nadu police and later taken over by the NIA on July 25, 2022.
