In other news, the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad has arrested four activists of the proscribed Popular Front of India (PFI) from Panvel in neighbouring Raigad district, an official told PTI on Thursday.
Those arrested include a local member of the banned outfit’s state expansion committee, a local unit secretary and two other workers.
The ATS had specific information about a meeting of two functionaries of the PFI and few workers in Panvel, even as the organisation has been banned by the Government of India, the official said.
