The police on Friday raided a house at Mayyil here in connection with the search operation to nab absconding Popular Front of India (PFI) activists allegedly involved in conducting a suspected weapons training centre at nearby Narath recently.
The police said the house of the wife of a PFI worker, identified as Kamaruddin of Eranjikkadavu, was raided in the afternoon. The police had seized weapons, including four swords and a hatchet, from the attic of Kamaruddin’s house at Kambil on April 25.

The Mayyil police said they had recovered pamphlets stating that Indian Muslims were in danger. A few brochures of an institution involved in religious conversion were also found.
