They said at least six premises in Delhi, Noida and few other locations in the National Capital region are being searched. The raids are aimed at collecting evidence in the case, they said.

The ED, in March, had booked suspended AAP councillor Hussain, Islamist group Popular Front of India (PFI) and some others on charges of money laundering and alleged funding of the recent riots in Delhi. The criminal case was filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and the raids are being carried out under these provisions, officials said.

Hussain is facing charges of killing an Intelligence Bureau official during the riots in northeast Delhi early this year. Similar charges to probe the riots have also been pressed against the PFI which is already facing a separate PMLA probe.
