Militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen Friday refuted the allegations and claims made by former RAW chief Amar Singh Dulat that UJC chief Syed Sallahuddin contacted Indian Intelligence Bureau to adjust his son in a medical college. Hizb Spokesperson Salim Hashmi in a statement to CNS said that Dulat’s revelations are “based on lies and there is not an iota of truth in them”.
“Salahuddin’s son secured medical seat on merit basis. Salahuddin is not in touch with any government or private agency and neither he is linked with any intelligence setup. This is a white lie and the accusations have been made to create doubts among people with regard to ongoing freedom movement. People know everything and they do know Indian agencies can go to any extent to weaken and defame the ongoing Kashmir Freedom Struggle,” the statement reads.
Pertinently, former Indian premier intelligence agency chief AS Dulat in his book has recalled how on one occasion Syed Salahuddin, head of the Hizbul Mujahideen, contacted the IB head in Kashmir, K M Singh, to help his son get into medical school and how Singh approached Farooq Abdullah who did the needful. Dulat said it’s not unusual for IB and RAW to do such favours for militants. He said it often happens. “Sometimes it’s a way of maintaining contacts.”
