GUWAHATI: The state police transported the leader of the outlawed organization Campus Front of India (CFI), an affiliate of the Popular Front of India (PFI), to Guwahati on transit remand after his arrest on Saturday in Bengaluru. In the Baksa district home of the jailed guy, a second police squad discovered a significant amount of incriminating materials, including banners in support of the hijab and against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Amir Hamza, who was apprehended, is a 27-year-old man from Baksa. The central government declared the PFI, its student wing CFI, and other affiliates "illegal" in September and imposed a five-year ban on them. According to the ministry of home affairs, the organizations promote "anti-national sentiments... radicalize a specific segment of society with the intention of creating disaffection" and pose a "major threat to the internal security of the country." They are also linked to terrorist organizations like the ISIS.

"We tracked down Hamza after he ran away and discovered that he had been residing in Bengaluru. Before that, he had also sought refuge in a number of locations. Hamza was taken into custody by an Assam police squad on Saturday with the assistance of local police, and on Sunday they transported him to Guwahati. A top police officer announced that he would be presented at Kamrup (Metro) district chief judicial magistrate's court on Monday.

In addition to several bank passbooks, police also found "anti-BJP, anti-RSS, and anti-ABVP banners and posters" during their search of his home in the Baksa district's Bhakuamari village.

In connection with a case that the police were made aware of in September, Hamza has been detained on suspicion of a number of crimes, including criminal conspiracy and using force against a public official or employee.

In the case filed for their "alleged involvement in an anti-establishment conspiracy by striving to foment communal strife in the state by criticizing government policies, including CAA, NRC, D-voter, new education policy, cattle protection act, and eviction of encroachment from government lands," a total of 41 members of PFI and CFI have been arrested so far.
