New Delhi, August 5 (TNA) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed a charge sheet against four members of the banned Popular Front of India (PFI) for planning violent criminal acts and promoting the organization's ideology of violent extremism in Bihar. The accused, identified as Mohammad Tanweer, Mohammad Aabid, Mohammad Belal, and Irshad Alam from East Champaran district, were involved in arranging arms and ammunition and propagating the PFI's agenda.
The investigation revealed that Alam was part of a criminal syndicate planning to attack and kill a youth from a specific community to spread terror and communal hatred. Tanweer and Abid possessed terror hardware, which they handed over to Yaqub Khan, a PFI master trainer, who conducted arms training sessions to further the banned outfit's unlawful activities.
