Republic TV is the only channel to have accessed the First Information Report (FIR) registered against the charitable wing of JuD Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). For the first time in India, an investigative agency has unearthed a new “modus operandi” of JuD. This is the first case against FIF in India.

A top NIA source told Republic TV that there is a direct Pakistan link that has emerged. FIF has several centres in Pakistan and is headquartered in Lahore. But operations for India is managed from Dubai. FIF is essentially operating in a clandestine manner in India avoiding the gaze of security agencies.

“We are looking at the triangle of Rajasthan, Mumbai, and Gujarat. It is possible that they could spread their tentacles but for the moment we are looking at this triangle,” said an NIA source. This is a new modus operandi of JuD by winning the hearts of vulnerable people in this triangle.  “They give money to poor families during the marriage of a girl child and building houses. They are building a cadre which would eventually be used to recruit vulnerable youth,” added the source.

During the preliminary questioning of the accused in the case, it has emerged that the money that was coming in as “zakat” was being used to distribute it among the families of terrorists. NIA also suspects that Srinagar hawala route is also active.

PAKISTAN — DUBAI — DELHI and then branches out to J&K — RAJASTHAN — GUJARAT, AND MUMBAI. NIA suspects that the network has been spread beyond these states.

HOW DID NIA TRACK DOWN THE CASE?

Three months ago, NIA got some actionable input that money was coming into India from Dubai for “charitable purposes”. Surveillance was increased. NIA source maintains that the input also came in from other sources.

The original input that NIA received was that a Pakistani national based in Dubai was in touch with a person in India who turned out to be one of the accused in the case. Salman based in Delhi was directly reviving funds from Dubai. The Pakistani national in Dubai was in direct contact with the Deputy chief of FII.
