The police had apprehended 25 activists of the organisation from eight districts of Assam on Tuesday, while 11 others were held on September 22-23, following the crackdown against the outfit by multiple agencies headed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
More than 170 people with links to the PFI were arrested from seven states on Tuesday, while 106 leaders and members of it were held in the earlier raids five days ago.
