Assam: PFI students’ wing leader from Baksa arrested in Bengaluru

An absconding leader of the students’ wing of the proscribed Popular Front of India (PFI) has been arrested from Bengaluru.

A team of Assam Police led by a DSP-rank officer on Friday night arrested Campus Front of India (CFI) leader Amir Hamja from the Bellundur area of Bengaluru where he was in hiding with some families from Tripura.
Hamja was given three days’ transit remand by the additional chief metropolitan magistrate of Bengaluru and is being brought to Guwahati, Assam police said in a statement.

He will be produced before the chief judicial magistrate, Guwahati, on Monday, it said.

Hamja, a resident of lower Assam’s Baksa district, absconded soon after the ban on PFI. Assam Police traced and apprehended him with the help of Bengaluru police, the statement added.

At least 40 PFI activists have been nabbed from different parts of the state so far.
