The NIA on Wednesday arrested a resident of Gujarat's Valsad from the Delhi airport in connection with its investigation into the Pakistan-based Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) terror funding case.
Dharampuria had been hiding in Dubai for long. The NIA had issued a Look Out Circular (LOC) against him and he was detained at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here on his arrival from Dubai, the official said.
The NIA registered the FIF terror funding case on July 2, 2018 under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). As per the case, some Delhi-based individuals were receiving funds from FIF operatives based abroad and using the same to further terror activities.
The US also designated FIF as a terrorist entity in 2010. It is a front organisation of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a terror organisation proscribed under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).
