Anti-terror agency on Monday carried out searches at 19 locations in South India and busted a "highly radicalised jihadi terror group".

According to ANI news agency, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is conducting these raids in close coordination with the state police forces.

The raids have been underway since this morning. However, there are no specific details about the exact location and about the jihadi group due to some operational reasons.

Citing sources, the news agency said that the terror group is engaged in anti-India activities and has learned to plan attacks, recruiting youths.

Monday's raid has come days after the NIA raided multiple locations across Bengaluru, Karnataka, in a case relating to the radicalization of prisoners by a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist.
