NIA team arrives to investigate funds for separatists from Pak

NIA team arrives to investigate funds for separatists from Pak

Srinagar, May 19 (UNI) The National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrived here today after a case was registered against some separatist leaders for receiving funds from Pakistan for subversive activities in the Kashmir Valley. The NIA team landed in Srinagar, where Defence Minister Arun Jaitley earlier during the day commenting on the alleged admission by some separatist leaders that they were receiving money from Pakistan, said, “I am sure the concerned agency will take whatever action has to be taken in this matter." Official sources said the team has arrived here to question separatist leaders, including chairman of hardline HC chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, presently under house arrest for the past one year; separatist leader Nayeem Ahmad Khan and Farooq Ahmad Dar alias Bita Karatee; besides another Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leader. The NIA has registered cases against them for receiving money from Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT), and other Pakistan-based groups for paying to the stone-pelters and others indulging in violence. The incidents of militant activities, stone-pelting and protests have witnessed sudden surge in the Kashmir Valley, where over 50 youths have joined militancy during the past few months.
