NIA raids being conducted to scare pro-freedom leaders: Dr Farooq


National Conference patron and member parliament Dr Farooq Abdullah on Friday said that the resistance leaders should be released so that they will tell the Home Minister “what they have to tell”.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the death anniversary of his father and first prime minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, Farooq said that if the state government wants Home Minister to talk to people, then it should release the “separatists so that they will tell the HM what they want”.

Criticizing the National Investigating Agency (NIA) raids on pro-freedom leaders, Farooq said he will not acknowledge the raids as these are being conducted to scare them.

Defending the pro-freedom leaders who are being probed in an alleged funding case, he said the raids won’t yield anything, adding “these exercises are only aimed at defaming and creating a turbulent situation in the Valley”.

Dr Farooq asked the Centre to leave the pro-freedom leaders alone and investigate the “money” spent by it to malign the NC party.

The Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh is scheduled to visit Jammu and Kashmir for a two-day visit starting from tomorrow.

The HM is scheduled to attend several meetings and meet sections of people.
