New Delhi: Popular Front of India condemns the raids conducted by Uttar Pradesh STF at our Delhi state committee office in Shaheen Bagh, New Delhi. This is a part of the ongoing harassment launched against Popular Front by Yogi Govt. There was a raid at our state office a couple of months back by the Enforcement Directorate and the agency could not find any shred of evidence for anything against the law from our office. So, it is clear that the present raid of UP STF was conducted only to harass us.
New Delhi: Popular Front of India strongly condemns the arrests of its members Anshad and Firoz by the Uttar Pradesh STF by creating a ridiculous fake story of terror attack. Both the persons are residents of Kerala and had visited West Bengal and Bihar for the expansion work of the organization. On 11th February morning 5:40 am both of them boarded a train from Katihar, Bihar to Mumbai. As per their families they last contacted them on the evening of 11th Feb after which they were not reachable on their phone.
A press release issued by Enforcement Directorate claims that the agency has filed a prosecution complaint against office bearers and members of Popular Front under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) before the Special PMLA Court, Lucknow. However, upon reading through the details of the said release, it becomes clear that wanton attempts have been made to mislead the media and society about our organization.
