Earlier, the NIA had held raids and sealed the PFI headquarters, Green Valley in Manjeri in Malappuram district.

The PFI was banned by the Union Home Ministry in September 2022 and most of the frontline leaders of the Islamist organisation were jailed. The PFI is accused in several murder cases across the country, and was working towards converting India into an Islamic nation.
