Enforcement Directorate Files Supplementary Charge sheet in PFI Case

Enforcement Directorate Alleges PFI Trained Members for Violence, Targeting BJP and RSS

The Enforcement Directorate has filed a supplementary charge sheet in Delhi’s Patiala House Court concerning the arrest of individuals associated with the banned organization Popular Front of India (PFI).

In the charge sheet, the Enforcement Directorate revealed significant revelations about PFI’s operations. It stated that PFI had designated its members who attacked individuals affiliated with the BJP and RSS as “reporters.” The organization labeled BJP and RSS as its enemies and orchestrated attacks against them.

The supplementary charge sheet names 12 PFI members in an alleged Rs 120 crore Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) case. Out of the total amount, Rs 60 crore was directly deposited into PFI’s account, which the organization claimed as legitimate earnings.

According to the ED, the funds obtained through illegal activities were used by PFI for various unlawful purposes. Payments were allegedly made to PFI activists involved in violent crimes under the guise of housing and marriage schemes.

Furthermore, the ED accused PFI of providing combat training to its members under the guise of physical training, to carry out violent acts. The chargesheet also highlighted that PFI members utilized this training to engage in serious criminal activities.

Despite PFI’s denial of its overseas presence, the ED uncovered evidence suggesting otherwise. Digital data seized by the ED indicated thousands of active PFI members in Gulf countries, collecting funds in an organized manner.

The ED claims to have recovered data on foreign PFI members, numbering up to 14,428, from a document found on a hard disk seized from Unity House, Kozhikode. The document revealed PFI’s presence in various locations, including Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and other parts of Asia.

PFI recently submitted a supplementary charge sheet in Delhi’s Patiala House Court, which has been acknowledged by the court.
