Three accused of procuring money from Pakistan to fund terrorism in Kashmir convicted by Delhi Court

The Delhi Patiala House Court convicted three of the four accused in a case registered against them by the NIA in 2011 for procuring money through hawala channels from Pakistan to fund terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

District Judge Poonam Bamba convicted Mohd Sadiq Ginai, Ghulam Jeelani Liloo and Farooq Ahmed Dagga who had pleaded guilty to various charges under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. In April this year, the NIA has filed a case against Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin’s son Syed Shahid Yusuf under section 120-B of the IPC and 13, 17, 18, 20, 21, 38 and 40 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, for funding terrorism in the valley. The Delhi High Court rejected his bail plea on the matter.

The NIA has also been cracking down on terror funding by separatists in the valley. The agency has been probing Hurriyat leaders for receiving funds from Pakistani terror outfits and the ISI to foment trouble in Kashmir. Last year, it had conducted raids against separatist leaders in many locations across Kashmir, Delhi and Haryana. Separatist leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s son-in-law was also detained by the NIA in connection with the terror funding probe. 7 Hurriyat leaders were also arrested by the NIA for receiving funds from Pakistan to promote terrorism. In a similar vein, NIA has also been investigating funding sources of Naxals.
