West Bengal President of PFI arrested by Assam Police from Delhi

The West Bengal President of Popular Front of India has been arrested by the Assam Police from Delhi and brought here to be produced in court. The police gave this information here on Friday. PFI leader Minarul Sheikh was arrested from the national capital at 12:30 pm on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday and brought to Guwahati.

He has been booked in a Special Operations Unit (SOU) case under various sections of the IPC related to sedition, criminal conspiracy, promoting enmity and assault to deter public servant from discharge of duty.

Another PFI worker, Bajrul Karim, was arrested from Karimganj in Assam on Thursday and brought here late in the night. Karim is the general secretary of PFI’s Barak Valley District Committee and a member of the state executive committee. With Sheikh’s arrest, Assam Police has arrested 11 members of PFI.

Nine of them were remanded in police custody for five days on Thursday, following a massive crackdown on the radical Islamist organization by the National Investigation Agency in 15 states for allegedly supporting terrorist activities in the country.

Of the ten PFI members arrested from Assam, four are from Nagarbera in Kamrup (Rural) district, two from Guwahati and one each from Karimganj, Barpeta, Baksa and Nagaon districts.

Police said they were brought to Guwahati and interrogated separately at the special branch headquarters. According to a statement by the Assam Police in Guwahati on Thursday, the leaders of the organization were arrested as there was credible information that they were making efforts to instigate communal conflict in the northeastern state.

They were indulging in inciting communal passion and sentiments of religious minorities by criticizing every policy of the government in a communal tone with a view to terming these actions as an attack on the Muslim community, the statement said. The statement claimed that the activists were using cyber space extensively to instigate people to take up court issues and orders outside the state.

According to the statement, the activists were allegedly involved in organizing protests against the issues in communally sensitive areas of Karimganj, Barpeta, Baksa, Kamrup (Rural), Goalpara and Kamrup (Metro) districts of Assam.
