Thiruvananthapuram: The National Investigation Agency has issued a lookout notice against absconding Popular Front of India leaders in Kerala. Third accused Abdul Sathar and 12th accused C Rouf are the two activists named in the lookout notice.

The duo went absconding amid the NIA raids in Kerala. In view of this, NIA issued a lookout notice. The NIA team will inform the court regarding this soon.

NIA has taken the move as there are chances of the accused fleeing the country.

In the remand report, NIA pointed out that Abdul Sathar and C Rouf had called hartal protesting against the raid at PFI offices.

Abdul Sathar, a native of Kollam, is the PFI state general secretary and Rouf from Thiruvananthapuram is the state secretary of the radical outfit.
