Following the questioning by Bihar police, Ayesha Banu, a resident of Panjimogaru, is now being grilled by Chhattisgarh police.

Bihar’s Lakhisarai police arrested Ms. Banu and her husband Zubeir in November 2013 for allegedly transfering funds illegally to persons suspected to have links with terrorist groups. Their arrests followed the disclosure allegedly by four persons from Lakhisarai arrested for alleged links with terrorists.

A police official from Lakhisarai police told The Hindu they filed charge sheet against Ms. Banu, Mr. Zubeir and four other persons for involvement in money laundering in January. “Investigations were still on on their alleged connection with terrorist groups,” said the official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media. The official said the couple have now been taken for questioning by Chhattisgarh police in connection with a case of illegal transfer of money registered in Raipur.
