On Thursday, the Delhi Police had arrested two members – Parvez Ahmed and Iliyas, associated with notorious Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI) for instigating and funding the anti-Hindu riots in the national capital.

In a shocking expose, it has now revealed that one of the accused – Mohammad Iliyas, who was the secretary of the PFI had also contested in the 2020 Delhi Assembly polls from Karawal Nagar on a ticket from Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), which is linked to radical Islamist organisation Popular Front Of India. The other accused Pervez Ahmed is the Delhi president of PFI.

The arrests of the riots-accused had come after the Enforcement Directorate had registered a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act against notorious radical Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI) for instigating and funding anti-Hindu Delhi riots in Delhi. The two office bearers of radical Islamic organisation PFI, president Parvez and secretary Ilyas, were arrested for questioning by the Delhi Police on charges of hatching a conspiracy to incite riots in northeast Delhi.

Another PFI member Mohd Danish was earlier arrested in connection with the anti-Hindu Delhi riots. Danish has been working with PFI since 2018 and is the general secretary of Trilokpuri area in Delhi.

The investigations had revealed that the senior PFI functionaries have admitted to certain transactions linking the outfit to the funding of anti-CAA protests in the capital and some other places. The agency had also questioned several people connected with PFI at its Delhi headquarters and found evidence of collection of Rs 120 crore, at least Rs 50 crore of which came as cash donations for which the source was not disclosed. The PFI is headquartered at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi.

Interestingly, the ED has also seized a tab from PFI’s Delhi unit president Parvez Ahmed which it claimed has records of a chain of conversations between him and AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh. Mohammad Parvez Ahmed was reportedly also in regular touch with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh and several Congress leaders including Udit Raj.

The central probe agency has also filed a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Tahir Hussain. His alleged links with the Popular Front of India (PFI) are also being investigated. The role of Aam Aadmi Party leader Tahir Hussain in the brutal murder of Intelligence Bureau (IB) employee Ankit Sharma and also inciting riots in the Delhi has now been under scanner.

On Monday, the Crime Branch of Delhi Police had arrested Tahir Hussain’s brother Shah Alam. Three other people who had given shelter to Shah Alam have also been arrested. Reportedly, Shah Alam was also present in that now-infamous multi-story building that belonged to Tahir Hussain when the riots were ongoing.
