NBWs against Hafiz Saeed, Salahuddin in terror funding case

New Delhi, Nov 3: A special NIA court has issued Non Bailable Warrants (NBWs) against wanted accused Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Yusuf Shah, alias Salahuddin, in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) terror funding case, the federal probing agency said here on Friday.

The NBWs were issued on Thursday under various sections of IPC and UA(P)A in J&K terror funding case.

The founder of the proscribed terror organisations Lashkar- e- Taiba (LeT) and Jamat–ud Dawa (JuD) Hafiz Saeed is a resident of Lahore in Pakistan, while Hizbul Mujahideen chief Salahuddin hails from Budgam district in J&K and currently lives in Islamabad.

The probe agency approached the Special NIA court for issuing NBWs against the accused for their active involvement in terror funding for creating unrest in the Kashmir valley and other parts of India.

“They mobilised Pakistan trained terrorists and pushed them into India from Pakistan in connivance with secessionist and separatist leaders for waging war against Indian Government with the nefarious design of seceding Jammu and Kashmir from Union of India”, the agency alleged.

NIA had already filed a chargesheet in the instant case on January 18 against 12 accused people, including Hafiz Saeed and Salahuddin. (UNI)
