Srinagar: National Conference (NC) President Dr Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday said that while National Investigative Agency (NIA) has probed funding of pro-freedom group and involvement of Pakistan in the same, it must also investigate whether the Indian government ever funded them or not.
“I congratulate NIA for its probe on funding of Hurriyat leaders. From where the money has come and how it is been utilised we will get to know that soon. One fact should also be investigated if Indian Government funded Hurriyat or not,” Farooq told news agency ANI.
The central probe agency yesterday arrested seven leaders and activists in Kashmir for allegedly funding terror groups in Kashmir.
They have been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
