RSS worker Rudresh murder case: Supreme Court rejects accused PFI leader’s plea against framing charges

Five men, including Asim Sharif were arrested in the case and a National Investigation Agency court had framed charges against them.

On Monday, the Supreme Court rejected a plea filed by radical Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI) leader Asim Sharif challenging the framing of charges against him for his alleged involvement in the heinous murder of RSS activist Rudresh in Bengaluru in 2016.

Reportedly, a Supreme Court bench comprising justices AM Khanwilkar and Ajay Rastogi dismissed the petition of Asim Shariff who had challenged the framing of charges against him for the offence of murder and terror activities. In its verdict, the SC has made it very clear that there is enough material evidence to proceed with the case.

The NIA had made serious charges against PFI member Asim Sharif for his alleged involvement in the killing of RSS activist Rudresh. Rudresh, the RSS worker, was hacked to death in the Shivajinagar area of Bengaluru in October 2016.

Five men including Asim Sharif were arrested in the case and a National Investigation Agency court had framed charges against them. Asim Sharif was reportedly the district president of Bengaluru PFI.

Popular Front of India, a radical Islamic organisation which operates mainly in Kerala has been accused of having links with the banned Islamic terror group Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).

The outfit PFI has a violent history in Kerala which includes chopping off hands of a Kerala Professor for allegedly insulting Islamic Prophet Mohammed. Besides this, it has been accused by the National Investigative Agency (NIA) of being involved in the controversial ‘love jihad’ cases in Kerala. Recently, activists of its political arm SDPI were arrested in connection with an ABVP worker’s brutal murder in Kerala’s Kannur.

Recently, the National Investigation Agency has also arrested an accused named Shali alias Myden Ahmed Shali, a 51-year-old resident of Thenkasi, Tamil Nadu, in connection with the murder of activist Ramalingam. Shali was arrested from Ernakulam. The accused Myden Ahmed Shali, the head of one ‘Dawah’ team, was also a member of Popular Front of India.
