Kochi: The National Investigation Agency has raised serious allegations against the Popular Front of India a day after raiding various centres of the party across the state. The remand report prepared by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) revealed that the Popular Front of India (PFI) leaders forced youngsters to join terrorist organisations and encouraged anti-national activities. The remand report released by Mathrubhumi News claimed that PFI encouraged youth to join international terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Taiba, ISS, and others.

It was pointed out that PFI leaders took part in terrorist activity as part of Jihad. Further, they made efforts to bring Islamic governance to India. The report also alleges that PFI tried to bend government policies and create hatred in public forums. NIA pointed out that calling a hartal in Kerala against the arrest of PFI leaders proves the influence they have over the public in the state.

The accused used social media platforms to share confidential pieces of information. The mobile phones and other devices used by the accused were seized during the raid, the report says.

NIA also requested permission for a detailed examination of this digital evidence. Meanwhile, various charges under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and conspiracy are imposed on the accused.

NIA charge sheet names 14 accused, with PFI as prime accused in the case. NIA alleged that hartal was announced in Kerala to avoid the arrest of PFI State General Secretary Abdul Sathar and state secretary CA Rouf.
