“During the raid of NIA in Shaheen Bagh these four accused hatched a conspiracy and obstructed the government officials in discharging their duties. They had played a crucial role in making a strong network of PFI in Shaheen Bagh and Jamia,” the police said.
The official said that a few more arrests were likely to be done from the area on the basis of the interrogation of the arrested four accused, reported IANS.
The Central Government had on September 28 banned the PFI and its associates, Rehab India Foundation (RIF), All India Imams Council (AllC), National Confederation of Human Rights Organisation (NCHRO) and other organisations as unlawful associations for alleged terror activities.
