The official Twitter handle of Popular Front of India has been withheld in India a day after Centre banned the outfit under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

Twitter said that the account has been withheld in India “in response to a legal demand.”

The organisation’s account, @PFIofficial, had around 81,000 followers.

The PFI Twitter takedown comes a day after the Union Home Ministry notified the five-year ban on the organisation and its affiliates over alleged “terror links”.

The National Investigation Agency, which probes cases of pan-India importance, and the Enforcement Directorate, which tracks illicit money, have alleged that the PFI has links with the Islamic State terror group and held arms training camps.

Besides PFI, the organisations which were also declared banned under the stringent anti-terror law UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act) include Rehab India Foundation, Campus Front of India, All India Imams Council, National Confederation of Human Rights Organisation, National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala.
