New Delhi: The organizational strength of the extremist Popular Front of India (PFI) in Kerala became evident when it was found that National Vice Chairman of the organization, Abdul Salam, is a government employee working with the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). He is a senior official with the audit office of the KSEB.
Abdul Salam is accused by Enforcement Directorate (ED) for collecting funds to instigate violence during the anti-CAA protests across many parts of India. He is currently Senior Assistant in the Regional Audit Office of KSEB in Manjeeri.
Even though, the ED had sent him a notice, Abdul Salam did not appear before the investigating agency for questioning citing that he was a senior government employee. He has asked for two weeks time to appear before the ED.
The ED has also summoned PFI Chairman, Aboobacker, and General Secretary, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, to appear for questioning. However, none of these leaders have appeared before the ED. The ED officials are saying that if they fail to appear in the coming days the agency is planning to initiate strict actions against them.
