BENGALURU: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted searches at 43 locations, including four offices of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDIP) -- the Popular Front of India's (PFI) political wing -- in Bengaluru.


The searches were conducted in connection with large-scale rioting and violent attacks on DJ Halli and KG Halli Police stations in Bengaluru on August 11 this year.


Rioters, armed with lethal weapons, caused injuries to police personnel, and destroyed public and private property including DJ Halli and KG Halli police stations buildings and public and private vehicles.


The riot led to fear and panic in the nearby areas and was intended to cause terror in the society.


So far, 124 accused have been arrested in the DJ Halli police station case and 169 in the KG Halli police station case.


During the searches, incriminating materials relating to SDPI as well as certain instruments for attacks like sword, knife, iron rods etc were seized, the NIA said.


"Further investigation is going on in both the cases."
