New Delhi is likely to provide fresh evidence compiled by its National Investigation Agency on the role of Hafiz Saeed’s Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) and its deputy Shahid Mahmood in a conspiracy to create sleeper terror cells in the garb of religious work in India, at the FATF meeting to be held in the US starting Sunday, government officials said.
The Indian delegation for the meeting will be headed by Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) chief PK Mishra with representatives from the ministries of home affairs, external affairs and finance, NIA, Enforcement Directorate, and Intelligence Bureau, among others.
India will lobby to put Pakistan in the blacklist and bring more curbs on the activities of Pakistan-based militant groups, sources said.
Citing investigations into FIF, New Delhi is likely to argue that the Pakistan-based militant groups continue to create unrest outside Jammu and Kashmir too.
According to NIA’s chargesheet into the FIF terror funding case, “Hafiz Saeed and deputy chief of FIF Shahid Mahmood had financed terror modules in Delhi and Haryana in garb of construction of mosque, madrasa education, and financial assistance for marriage of poor Muslim girls”.
Mahmood, according to NIA, was sending funds from Pakistan to India via Dubai and through hawala channels.
The agency had arrested two Indian nationals late last year for allegedly using the funds provided by Mahmood for the construction of a mosque in Palwal, Haryana.
