LUCKNOW: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is all set to approach a Mathura court next week to seek remand of the four youths arrested by Mathura police for conspiracy to trigger violent agitation on Hathras incident, reports Pathikrit Chakraborty.
The four, linked to the Popular Front of India (PFI), were arrested on October 5. They were booked for sedition, raising funds for the purpose of committing a terrorist act under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and spreading enmity between religions.
Officials said that they had received all the documents and evidence related to the case. An ED official privy to the probe said that the FIR includes Section 153A of Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002. The money collected by committing crime under this section is liable to be confiscated, he added. “We will question the four and then take a final call on registering a case,” said another official.
ED also said that it is trying to trace the details of the website — ‘Justice for Hathras’.
