NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency has busted a terror funding module in Delhi which was being run by Hafiz Saeed-led Lashkar-e-Taiba’s front organisation Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF). The agency arrested three persons including a FIF operative — Mohammad Salman (52) and raided several places in Daryaganj, Nizamuddin and Kucha Ghasiram areas in the capital.

FIF, registered as a charitable body in Pakistan, has been blacklisted by United Nations Security Council but it continues to raise funds for LeT’s terror activities through bank accounts opened in pseudonyms.

It disguises itself as a relief and charitable organisation claiming to collect funds for natural disasters, but India and international community has repeatedly opposed its activities as it is used by LeT and its parent organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) for anti-India terror activities.

FIF, JuD and latter’s student wing Al-Muhammadiya Students (AMS) are known for organising lectures, rallies, meetings, fund raising activities and recruiting youngsters to take up jihad against India, according to officials. NIA had received information in July this year that some Delhi-based individuals were receiving funds from FIF operatives based abroad and were using the same to further the terror activities following which it registered an FIR and started investigating the funding.

During probe, it found that Mohammad Salman, a resident of Nizamuddin, was in regular touch with one Dubai-based Pakistani national, who in turn was related to deputy chief of Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation, said NIA inspector general Alok Mittal. Salman was receiving funds, through hawala operators.

Mittal added that Salman, Mohammad Salim alias Mama (62) and a Kashmiri resident Sajjad Abdul Wani (34) were arrested last night. The agency has recovered Rs 1.56 crore cash, Rs 43,000 in Nepali currency, 14 mobile phones, five pen drives and several incriminating documents.
