She has been asked to appear before the court on July 15, news agency PTI reported quoting officials. This is the first time that Rubaiya Sayeed has been asked to appear in the case. Rubaiya Sayeed, who stays in Tamil Nadu, is listed as a prosecution witness by the CBI which took over the investigations into the case in early 1990.

Sayeed was kidnapped by militants in 1989, five days after her father became the first Muslim Minister of Home Affairs. The militants had demanded the release of five arrested militants in return for Rubaiya’s release. With no other option, the government accepted their demand and freed them.

Yasin Malik, chief of the banned JKLF who has recently been sentenced to life imprisonment in a funding case, is an accused in the Rubaiya Sayeed kidnapping case.
