SRINAGAR: A Delhi Court granted bail to Javaid Ahmed Lone, a Kashmiri, accused of “terror” funding, the Indian Express reported.

The Court in its order said that helping a person build a house or providing financial help to a man for his daughter’s medical treatment cannot be considered as incriminating.

In its chargesheet, the NIA had alleged that accused Javaid Ahmed Lone was a member of the banned outfit Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) which was involved in “separatist and secessionist activities in J&K” by collecting funds through foreign donations in the name of charity and “using them for violent and secessionist activities”.

Lone was arrested on February 15, 2022, after he was questioned multiple times in the case. He was an imam at a mosque in Ganderbal.

The NIA stated that they recovered a list of JeI members from the possession of Lone, who allegedly collected Rs 15 lakh from them. It was alleged that Lone promised a man financial help to build a house and gave Rs 500 to another man to treat his daughter’s illness.
