New Delhi, March 9 (IANS) The Patiala House Court here on Monday sent a PFI member named Danish to four-day police remand for allegedly spreading fake propaganda during the anti-CAA protests.
Danish, who reportedly heads PFI’s Counter Intelligence Wing, was arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police earlier on Monday.
“He has been actively participating in the anti-CAA protests across the city,” sources in the Special Cell said.
The sources further claimed that his arrest has given clues regarding the ‘information war’ by the Popular Front of India (PFI).
The FIR was filed by the Crime Branch, but since the larger conspiracy regarding the Delhi riots is being probed by the Special Cell, the matter has been transferred to them.
The Special Cell had on Sunday arrested a Kashmiri couple from Okhla for alleged links with the Islamic State (IS) in the Khorasan Province.
The couple have been identified as Jahanjeb Sami and his wife Hinda Bashir Beg. The police have seized some objectionable materials from them and are interrogating them.
When asked about the couple, the sources said, “Officers are analysing the eight mobile phones and laptop recovered from their possession.”
The couple was operating from the Valley, but later shifted their base to Delhi post the internet clampdown.
