Lucknow. ED on Friday filed a charge sheet in Lucknow court against the hotel owner Ashraf MK along with Abdul Razaq Peediyakkal alias Abdul Razak BP in routing money to Uttar Pradesh for creating communal and Jehadi operations.
ED has found controversial Jihadi organization PFI routing money from an Abu Dhabi based hotel to create communal tension in Uttar Pradesh.
According to reports, the hotel is owned by Asharaf MK alias Ashraf Khadir from Kerala, who is also an active PFI member engaged in covert operations through his UAE-based firms.
Both accused Asharaf and Abdul Razak are currently in prison for the past few months. The owner of the restaurant Ashraf was PFI’s Eranakulam District President and was accused of chopping the hand of a college Professor Joseph for putting an ‘anti-Islamic” question for a college exam. However, he was later acquitted.
According to reports, more such charge sheets are expected to be filed by the agency in the coming days. The ED has been probing the PFI, formed in 2006 in Kerala and headquartered in Delhi, since 2018 for its various activities, including its alleged role in “funding” the anti-CAA protests and the communal riots that took place in 2020 in Delhi.
