New Delhi: The NIA Tuesday questioned the two sons of pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Geelani in connection with a “terror funding” probe allegedly involving Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, official sources said.
It also questioned Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) Faheem Ali, who handles another pro-freedom leader Mirwaiz Umer Farooq’s security, in connection with the case.
Ali is the first police officer from the state to be interrogated by the NIA.
While Geelani’s elder son Nayeem is a surgeon, the younger one, Naseem, is a state government employee.
The brothers are being questioned in connection with a terror funding case which has named Saeed, leader of the Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa, as an accused, the sources said.
The NIA registered the case on May 30, accusing pro-freedom leaders of working in collusion with “terrorist groups”. PTI
