Agency News

New Delhi, Apr 10 : Special Judge Rakesh Syal on Wednesday ordered to NIA custody JKLF chief Yasin Malik in connection with a case related to funding of separatists and terror groups in Jammu and Kashmir.
Malik is arraigned for murder and kidnapping and alleged involvement in the abduction in 1989 of Rubaiya Sayeed, daughter of then Union Home Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and killing of four Indian Air Force personnel in the early part of the following year.
NIA had approached a special court in Jammu, seeking Malik's remand for custodial interrogation in the terror funding case.
National Investigation Agency has testified that it is seeking to identify the chain of players behind the financing of terrorist activities, stone pelting on security forces, razing of schools and damage to government establishments.
In this case, Hafiz Saeed, the Pakistan-based chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the front for banned Lashkar-e-Taiba and organisations such as Hurriyat Conference factions led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the Hizbul Mujahideen and the Dukhtaran e Millat are also accused.
Malik was shifted to Delhi's Tihar Jail on Tuesday after the NIA secured his production remand in connection with the terror funding case.
