India implicating Hurriyat leaders in false terror funding cases
NEW DELHI: The Indian National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday issued a notice to Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani's son in connection with terror funding case.
In August, Naseem Geelani, a professor by profession, was summoned and questioned by NIA in August this year after the investigative agency arrested half a dozen separatists including Geelani's son-in-law Altaf Ahmad Shah.
They were accused of receiving funds from Pakistan to fuel protests in the Kashmir Valley.
According to officials, who are not authorised to speak to media, the two were asked to bring certain documents related to financial transactions that have come under the scanner of the NIA.
The NIA had registered the case of terror funding and named Hafiz Saeed, leader of the Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa and bannedt outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, as an accused.
It had registered the case on May 30, accusing separatist and secessionist leaders of being in cahoots with terrorist groups.
