Big revelations regarding PFI in ED’s chargesheet

A supplementary charge sheet has been filed by the Enforcement Directorate in the case of arrest of some people associated with the banned organization Popular Front of India (PFI). In this supplementary charge sheet of the Enforcement Directorate filed in the Patiala House Court of Delhi, huge revelations have been made regarding PFI. ED said in its charge sheet that investigation has revealed that PFI had given the title of ‘reporter’ to its workers who attacked people of BJP, RSS.

Conspired to attack against BJP-RSS

The ED says the money earned from crime was being used to provide combat training, which could have cost lives. The Enforcement Directorate, in its supplementary charge sheet filed against banned organization PFI, has alleged that PFI had assigned its people the task of identifying enemies and causing physical harm to them and those carrying out this task were called “reporters”. PFI described BJP and RSS as their enemies and conspired to carry out attacks against them. ED has filed supplementary chargesheet against 12 PFI members in the alleged Rs 120 crore PMLA case. ED has said that out of Rs 120 crore, Rs 60 crore came directly into the account of PFI. This is purely the proceeds of crime.

War training under the guise of physical training

The ED alleged that the proceeds of crime were being used by PFI for illegal activities. In the chargesheet, the ED claimed that payments were provided to PFI activists accused of violent crimes in the guise of housing and marriage schemes. The ED also claimed in its charge sheet that PFI, under the guise of physical training, was providing combat training to its members who were conspiring to work towards killing people. In this charge sheet, ED has said that PFI members are using this training to commit various serious crimes.

Confirmation of PFI’s presence abroad

Though the ED mainly operates under the section of PMLA, it has clearly stated that with the help of the proceeds of crime, PFI was providing training to its members like use of knives which could kill people. PFI categorically denied its presence abroad. However, ED has found evidence suggesting something else. ED said that PFI national general secretary Anees Ahmed had said that PFI operates only in India. But, digital data seized by ED revealed that PFI had thousands of active members in the Gulf countries and all of them were collecting funds in a well-organized and structured manner.

PFI in many Gulf countries, from UAE to Kuwait

In this charge sheet, ED has claimed that it has recovered the data of foreign members of PFI, whose number is up to 14,428. ED said that we recovered a document from the hard disk seized from Unity House, Kozhikode. It revealed that PFI has members in Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and other areas in Asia. ED has recently filed a supplementary charge sheet in the Patiala House Court of Delhi, on which the Patiala House Court has also taken cognizance.
