Brother of Kashmiri separatist leader detained for clicking pictures inside Patiala house court

Munir Ahmad Khan who is the younger brother of Kashmiri separatist leader Nayeem Ahmad Khan, found himself detained, after he proceeded to click pictures inside the complex of Patiala House Court in Delhi.

The younger brother had travelled from the Kashmir valley to meet Nayeem against whom the NIA had filed a chargesheet in the ongoing terror funding probe. Nayeem is the head of the separatist group named National Front, which was incidentally suspended from the Hurryat, after a sting emerged where Nayeem is allegedly seen accepting that he burnt schools in 2016.

Nayeem and other separatist leaders like Bitta Karate were arrested by the NIA in July 2017, in connection with allegedly receiving funds from Pakistan to spread terror in the state. This funding was also reportedly used in organising various stone pelting protests and to fund various terror groups.

As per the PTI report, when Nayeem was being taken to the jail after being in the courtroom regarding this matter, his younger brother started to click pictures after which security personnel snatched his phone and proceeded to detain him. He was later handed over to the Tilak Marg Police station.

This case was brought to the attention of Additional Sessions Judge Tarun Sherawat by Nayeem moments after the judge reserved an order taking cognisance of the chargesheet. The judge later enquired about Munir’s status, and was informed that a special cell of the Delhi Police and Intelligence Bureau would be interrogating him jointly.

The judge as a result questioned whether the photographs were sensitive in nature, which as per the public prosecutor was not the case. Following this the court directed the police to delete the photos and release Nayeem’s brother with a warning.

As per the public prosecutor, with the Republic Day being so near at hand, such precautions are likely to be taken considering the area’s sensitivity.
