Mahathir told radio station BFM 89.9 that Modi, whom he met in Russia during an economic forum in the Russian city of Vladivostok earlier this month, made no extradition request for Zakir despite official notice from New Delhi.
Speaking to media on the 100 days of Modi government, Jaishankar said Naik's extradition issue had indeed come up during PM Modi's meeting with the Malaysian counterpart at Vladivostok in Russia on September 5.
Naik is facing a probe in India by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after his sermons on his Peace TV were cited as a reason by Bangladesh for an attack in Dhaka in 2016, which claimed 22 lives.
"The Islamic Research Foundation allegedly received funds in the form of donations from domestic as well as overseas donors from countries like the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Malaysia among others," the ED report said.
Controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik is likely to be questioned by National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is scanning his 78 bank accounts, and real estate investments worth at least Rs 100 crore in and around Mumbai by him and his associates.
