NIA raids separatist leaders, aides

Day after threatening to march to NIA office in Delhi, JKLF chief Yasin Malik arrested

Muhammad Yasin Malik was today arrested from JKLF offices at Abi Guzar and immediately shifted to central jail Srinagar on a five day long judicial remand.

The NIA is probing the militancy and separatist funding in Jammu and Kashmir and has already arrested nine people including seven separatist leaders, Sikh lawyer from Jammu and a leading businessman in the Valley.

A large portion of that amount was seized from a Srinagar-based LPG dealer who is related to one of the separatist leaders arrested by the NIA. The disclosure by Khan led to NIA raids at several places in Delhi, Haryana, Jammu and Srinagar.

The NIA teams, assisted by state police and paramilitary forces, also raided a dozen places in summer capital, Srinagar, Tangmarg in Baramulla district, Handwara in the frontier district of Kupwara on August 16.

Sleuths of NIA carried out daylong raids in the Valley and Jammu city on Thursday.

In its FIR, the NIA mentioned that Hafiz Saeed and separatist leaders, including members of the Hurriyat Conference, have been acting in connivance with active militants of proscribed terrorist organisations Let, HM, Dukhtaran-e-Millat and other terrorist organisations for raising, receiving and collecting funds domestically and overseas through various illegal channels for funding terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

The NIA on Wednesday conducted raids at 11 locations in Srinagar and 5 in Delhi in connection with the Funding case. The raid began at 4 a.m. and continued the whole day.

Meanwhile, Chairmen of both the factions of Hurriyat Conference (HC) Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Maulvi Umar Farooq and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik have chose to protest and court arrest at the headquarters of National Investigation Agency (NIA) in New Delhi on Saturday.

Among those whose premises were searched include separatist leaders Ghulam Nabi Sumji and Syed Aga Hassan Budgami, both close to hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani.

"These villainous acts by the government would not break the spirit of the freedom loving people of Kashmir", Mr Malik said before he was arrested from a party office in the city.

Hardline senior separatist leader, Syed Ali Geelani continues to be under house arrest in his uptown Hyderpora residence.

After the NIA summoned Kashmir High Court Bar Association (HCBA) president Mian Abdul Qayoom to Delhi, the association on Thursday wrote an open letter to the Chief Justice of India. It is pertinent to mention that united resistance leadership has made a decision to go to Delhi on 9th September and court arrest before NIA. Shabir Shah is at present in judicial custody after the Enforcement Directorate arrested him last month in connection with an earlier case of money laundering.
