The NIA probe has revealed that Asiya Andrabi, one of the terrorist sympathisers and pro-Pakistan separatists, had received funds from abroad and utilised them for personal gains including the funding of educational expenses of her son in Malaysia from 2011 onwards.
According to reports, the NIA has now approached the concerned authorities for providing evidence relating to certain bank accounts used by Mohammad bin Qasim, the son of Asiya Andrabi during his tenure as a student in the University.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has now confronted separatist leader Asiya Andrabi with the evidence related to the funding of educational expenses of her son through foreign remittances made by Zahoor Watali who is one of the influential businessmen in the Kashmir and also an accused in the terror funding case.
In a major breakthrough, the arrested separatist leaders including Asiya Andrabi had admitted their involvement in the 2017 Jammu and Kashmir terror funding case. During the NIA interrogation, she had admitted that she had been collecting funds and allocations from foreign sources for which her organisation had been organising protests by Muslim women in the valley.
Asiya Andrabi, the chief of banned secessionist organisation Dukhtaran-e-Millat was sent to NIA custody for 10 days by a Delhi court earlier this month along with Shabir Shah of Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) and Masarat Aalam of Muslim League.
Masarat Alam, the poster boy of stone pelters of Kashmir has also made some significant admissions about the involvement of Pakistan in the disturbances in Kashmir. He told that Pakistan based agents channelled the funds through hawala operators which were transferred to the separatist leaders including Syed Shah Gilani who is the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, a conglomerate of separatist parties in J&K.
