NIA nails top separatist leaders, Kashmiri separatist leaders admit their involvement in terror funding case

The NIA had charge-sheeted 12 persons, including the LeT chief Hafiz Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin in January 2018 in connection with the terror funding case.

In a major breakthrough, the separatist leaders arrested in a terror funding case have admitted their involvement in the 2017 Jammu and Kashmir terror funding case. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has confronted separatist leader Asiya Andrabi with the evidence related to the funding of educational expenses of her son in Malaysia since 2011 through foreign remittances made by Zahoor Watali who is an influential businessman in the Kashmir and also an accused in the terror funding case.

Asiya Andrabi, 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. However, Andrabi was already lodged in jail for the charges of waging war against the country and delivering hate speeches in Jammu and Kashmir. During the NIA interrogation, she 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.

Masarat Alam, also known as the poster boy of stone pelters of Kashmir also made some significant revelations 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.

The NIA has registered cases against 13 accused which include seven top separatist leaders, 2 hawala conduits and some stone pelters in Jammu & Kashmir terror funding case. The charge-sheeted separatist leaders include LeT co-founder Hafiz Saeed and Hizbul Chief Syed Salahuddin.
