The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a third accused in a case involving the outlawed Popular Front of India (PFI) in a plot to disrupt peace and spread communal hatred and enmity in Rajasthan, an official said on Saturday.
Mohammad Sohail, a resident of Murshid Nagar in Udaipur, was arrested from Jaipur on Friday for his active involvement in a criminal conspiracy by the PFI, a spokesman for the federal agency said.
Earlier, the NIA arrested two accused – Sadiq Sarraf and Mohammed Asif – and the case was registered at the NIA headquarters in New Delhi on September 19 last year.
“Sohail conspired with PFI cadres/members to incite Muslim youths to engage in violent and illegal activities,” the spokesman said.
