Meanwhile, the CBI has started a preliminary enquiry against organisers of the Tablighi Jamaat for alleged dubious cash transactions and hiding of foreign donations from authorities, officials said on Friday. A preliminary enquiry was filed by the CBI in the first week of May. Sources in the CBI said the enquiry has been registered against the organisers of the Jamat and other unknown persons on a complaint received by the agency.

The complaint alleges that the organisers and trustees indulged in dubious cash transaction by using illegal and unfair means.

The CBI has been provided with the copy of the FIR filed by the Delhi Police in the Nizamuddin Markaz case. The police have also provided them with the details of the investigation done by them so far and filed 47 chargesheets in three consecutive days against 910 foreign attendees of the Markaz.
