Court sends member of Pak based terror outfit to 5-day NIA custody

 

A Delhi court today sent an alleged member of banned Pakistan-based terror outfit Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), to five-day NIA custody in connection with a terror funding case.

The court allowed the National Investigation Agency (NIA), to quiz Mohammad Arif Ghulambashir Dharampuria in its custody. The agency had sought 12-days custody of the accused.

Dharampuria, a resident of Valsad district in Gujarat, was arrested at the Indira Gandhi International Airport on his arrival from Dubai yesterday.

The case pertains to receiving of terror funds being sent by FIF operators to their associates through hawala operators to further nefarious activities and creating unrest in India.

This is the fifth arrest in this case. The other four accused are in judicial custody. In July last year, the NIA filed a case to probe the terror funding module linked to Pakistan-based terrorist Hafeez Saeed’s FIF – a front-end organisation of Lashkar-e-Taiba.
