The other accused named in the case are Mohammad Kamran, a Dubai based Pakistani National and two Pakistani residents - Shahid Mahmood and Hafiz Mohammad Saeed.

"Investigation by NIA reveals that Chief of Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) and Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hafiz Mohammad Saeed along with his deputy Shahid Mahmood hatched a conspiracy to create sympathizers/sleeper cells and logistic base in Delhi and Haryana region under the garb of religious work such as construction of mosques, madrasas, providing financial assistance for marriage of poor Muslim girls etc," read the release.

NIA stated that Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) is a frontal organisation of the proscribed terrorist organization, Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and has also been proscribed under UAPA in furtherance of this conspiracy.

The agency said that Shahid Mahmood, the deputy chief of Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FiF) was tasked his associate namely Mohammad Kamran, a Pakistani national based in Dubai "to identify religious-minded Indian Muslims who could be given such funds and accordingly for re-routing funds from Pakistan to Dubai and further to India through hawala channels".

"Accordingly, Mohammad Kamran identified one Mohammad Salman r/o New Delhi for this purpose. He started transferring a large amount of funds (through illegal hawala) in the name of religious work i.e. construction of mosque Khulfa-e-Rashideen in Uttawar, Palwal, Haryana and for the marriage of Muslims girls. He also deputed his employee, Mohammad Arif Gulambashir Dharampuria for monitoring the distribution and usage of these funds sent illegally into India," read the release.
