The police and crime branch officials arrested four activists of the banned organisation from Thane district- two from Mumbra and one each from Kalyan and Bhiwandi towns, on Tuesday during the state-wide swoop.

The Central government on Wednesday banned the PFI and several of its associates for five years under a stringent anti-terror law, accusing them of having "links" with global terror groups like ISIS.
