Srinagar

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) summoned Shahid Yousuf, son of Hizbul Mujahideen founder and chief of United Jihad Council (UJC) Syed Salahuddin, to New Delhi for questioning in a case registered against Hizbul Mujahideen in Delhi in 2011.

The summons, served to Shahid through SSP Budgam, has been issued by Ajeet Singh, Superintendent of Police NIA. It reads: “Whereas it appears that you are acquainted with the facts and circumstances of the case (RC-06/2011/NLA/DLI dated 25.04.2011), which I am investigating, you are hereby required to appear before me… for the purpose of answering certain questions relating to the case.”

Shahid Yousuf is a resident of Soibugh Budgam. He was served the summons on October 16 to present himself before NIA investigators at their New Delhi office on October 24, Tuesday.

Shahid is the third son of Mohammad Yousuf Shah, known by his nom de guerre Syed Salahuddin, supreme commander of the UJC which is a conglomerate of more than twelve militant outfits.

Reports said that Shahid was earlier questioned four times by NIA sleuths at their Humhama station. “He was questioned about his family and the NIA sleuths had taken his mobile phone as well,” reports quoting fmily sources of Shahid said.
