NEW DELHI: Two days after the arrest of three Popular Front of India (PFI) men, who were allegedly part of a “potential terror module” that sought to target those “who make adverse and objectionable” comments against Islam, the Patna Police on Friday made some more sensational disclosures in the case with the arrest of a key suspect in touch with Pakistan-based radical groups.

Speaking to the media, Patna Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Manavjit Singh Dhillon said, “We have arrested another accused identified as Marguv Ahmad Danish alias Tahir last night.”

According to Patna Police officials, Danish is a resident of Patna’s Phulwari Sharief area, from where the police earlier arrested other potential terror group suspects.

“We intercepted phone numbers and found anti-national content. The person was associated with the Ghazwa-e-Hind group,” the SSP said.

Dhillon said that Danish is a permanent resident of Gaya’s Bitho Sharif area and his family members are also based in Pakistan’s Karachi. He said that Danish is also associated with the radical group Tehreek-e-Labbaik based in Pakistan.

The Police arrested Athar Parvez, allegedly a former member of the now banned Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), who was associated with the Ghazwa-e-Hind group and had also created two WhatsApp groups with his Pakistan mobile number, and Mohammad Jallauddin, a retired policeman from Jharkhand, and Arman Malik from the Phulwari Sharief area in Patna.

 

 

 

The police official said, “Danish created two WhatsApp groups through Pakistan number and he was made admin. It had many people from gulf countries. They planned a maximum number of people in the group to share their ideology.”

He also said that another group was formed in January that had 10 members including eight from Bangladesh.

Dhillon said that after Danish’s arrest Police have got more clues and they are trying to identify those people.

“These groups were distributing anti-national content instigating people along with pro-terrorism posts related to Kashmir. They had plans to join the direct jihad in 2023,” Dhillon added.
