Indian Agencies register case against Hafiz Saeed led FIF

NEW DELHI: Indian Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday registered a case against Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), the charity organisation run by Hafiz Saeed, Zee News has reported.

A case was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for the organisation's alleged involvement in money laundering through various hawala channels, reported news agency ANI.

The foundation is a subsidiary of Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD), a UN-designated terrorist organisation founded by Saeed, who is also the co-founder of banned outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba.

The development comes within a week of India's note verbale to Pakistan, raising a strong protest Saeed's recent participation at `Kashmir Solidarity Day` rally in Lahore. According to reports, the 69-year-old – an internationally designated terrorist with a US bounty of $10 million on his head – was showered with rose petals during the rally proceeding.

The ED said it took cognisance of a National Investigation Agency (NIA) FIR, filed under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) last year in September, to file its own case against the FIF.
