In India

The Enforcement Directorate made a sensational disclosure today, saying that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and INC’s Dalit face Udit Raj, who had during the Lok Sabha election quit the BJP after it refused to renominate him for a Delhi seat, had links with the disgraced front of many an Islamist outfit, the Popular Front of India (PFI). According to the ED report (copy embedded below), Sanjay Singh was in constant contact with PFI President Mohammad Parvez Ahmed.

The ED has said that WhatsApp chats between Sanjay Singh and Parvez make the link quite obvious.

Sanjay Singh of AAP, Udit Raj of INC have PFI links: ED

On Thursday, the ED submitted a report to the Union Home Ministry (MHA) on the funding of the picket against the Citizenship Amended Act (CAA) by the PFI in Shaheen Bagh.

Anish Ahmad, secretary of the PFI currently in Bengaluru, has said that there is no truth in the claim of the ED. “No money has been transferred in any way. This charge is baseless,” he said.

The ED report says that Bhim Army and INC leader Udit Raj has relations with the PFI too. ED officials say that people whose names have come up in its probe will be served notices in due course and they will have to explain their association with the dubious organisation.

Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Nityanand Rai told a news channel that there is a nexus between the PFI, the AAP and the INC. He said the PFI funds the events of these parties. Rai said that the AAP was behind the Shaheen Bagh protest.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government had demanded a ban on PFI. The Yogi Adityanath government had written a letter to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs in this regard. The UP government had said that this organisation had a hand in the violent protests in the state against the CAA.

The then DGP of Uttar Pradesh OP Singh said that 25 members of the PFI had been arrested on charges of rioting and sabotage in many areas of the state.

AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reacted to the revelation by questioning why Sanjay Singh was not arrested if the ED had proof against him.

Earlier, the ED accused lawyer and INC member Kapil Sibal of harbouring links with the PFI.
