NIA seeks 20 days remand of Hurriyat leaders arrested in ‘terror funding case’


Seven Hurriyat leaders were on Tuesday produced in Patiala House Court in New Delhi for their alleged involvement in “terror funding case”, reports said.

As per reports, NIA has sought 20 days remand for all the seven accused for alleged illegal money laundering in Jammu and Kashmir.

The arrested include Nayeem Khan, Altaf Shah, Ayaz Akbar, Shahid ul Islam, Mehrajuddin Kalwal, Peer Saifullah and Bitta Karate. Karate was arrested from Delhi while others were arrested from Srinagar.

NIA had initiated a preliminary inquiry (PE) against pro-freedom leaders after Nayeem Khan in a TV sting operation “confessed” that Hurriyat leaders have been receiving funds for “subversive activities” in the Kashmir Valley.
