According to reports from the news agency ANI, the coordinated operation involved one location in Karnataka, 2 in Pune, 31 in Thane Rural, 9 in Thane city, and one in Bhayandar. NIA operatives, working in tandem with the police forces of Maharashtra and Karnataka, executed the raids to thwart the alleged plans of the terrorist outfit.
