Terror funding in the name of MBBS seats in Pakistan: J&K police arrest 4, Hurriyat channels involved

The ones arrested include Mohammed Akbar Bhat alias Zafar Bhat, who is chairman of the 'salvation movement', Fatima Shah, Mohammed Abdullah Shah, and Shabzar Ahmed Sheikh.

Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbagh Singh on Wednesday announced in a press conference that four people have been arrested for procuring medical seats in Pakistan for students from the union territory via Hurriyat and terror funding.

The ones arrested include Mohammed Akbar Bhat alias Zafar Bhat, who is chairman of the ‘salvation movement’, Fatima Shah, Mohammed Abdullah Shah, and Shabzar Ahmed Sheikh. Reportedly, the brother of Mohammed Abdullah Shah had settled in Pakistan in the ’90s where he worked as a facilitator of Hurriyat. 

DGP Singh also informed that the investigations are underway and details of other accused cannot be made public at the moment. 

Responding to media queries, Singh revealed that there were as many as 57 cases of youth from Jammu and Kashmir who went across the border on a student visa and returned as terrorists. Out of these 17 have been killed in encounters, around 14 to 15 are still active as terrorists in various terror outfits and another 17 have been arrested in some criminal case.

Singh further informed that another dozen or so are suspected to be in terror training camps in Pakistan. “The number could be more than 57. These 57 came to our notice. We are working towards finding more such cases where people went on a student visa (to Pakistan) but their coordinates are now not known,” Singh added further.
