Yasin Malik held in terror funding case

Agency News

The National Investigation Agency has rounded up  the JKLF chief Yasin Malik in connection with a case related to the funding of terror and separatist groups in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said in Srinagar.

Malik was brought to New Delhi  on Tuesday evening after a special NIA court in Jammu gave the go ahead for his custodial interrogation.

The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief, who was shifted to Tihar jail, was taken into preventive custody in February by the state police and shifted to the  Kot Balwal jail there.

Malik, whose JKLF was banned last month, is also facing two CBI cases relating to the kidnapping of Rubaiya Saeed, daughter of then Union home minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, in 1989, and the killing of four IAF personnel in 1990.
