In addition to this, the NIA, together with the native police, began conducting raid at Old Delhi’s Ballimaran, which falls underneath the Hauz Qazi police station space. The NIA reached the realm early on October 11 morning.
Earlier in September, the Enforcement Directorate carried out raids in the homes of former PFI staff in 4 districts of Kerala- Thrissur, Ernakulam, Malappuram and Wayanad.
In August, the NIA had raided the home of a number of PFI operatives in Malappuram. The raids had been carried out on the residences of Thayyil Hamza in Vengara, Kalathiparambil Yahuti in Tirur, Haneefa in Tanur and Rangattur Padikkaparambil Jaffer, who had been all a part of the banned PFI.
The searches got here after the NIA in early August had hooked up the Green Valley Academy in Manjeri, one of many PFI’s largest and oldest arms and bodily coaching centres.
