This was confirmed by Kamrup Superintendent of Police (SP) Hitesh Ch. Ray.
He said, “Three members of the banned PFI were arrested from Nagarbera after conducting a drive in the area on Thursday night. Another person linked with PFI has also been detained.”
The arrested persons have been identified as Hafijur Rahman, Nazrul Islam and Rafiqul Islam.
Reportedly, Rafiqul Islam is the President of Samoria Anchalik Panchayat.
Notably, in September, the Central government had banned PFI, its associates, and affiliates as an unlawful association with immediate effect for a period of five years under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
The notification clearly mentioned that the ban has been imposed against PFI and its associates or affiliates or fronts for "indulging in unlawful activities, which are prejudicial to the integrity, sovereignty and security of the country and have the potential of disturbing public peace and communal harmony of the country and supporting militancy in the country.
