The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has registered a preliminary enquiry into the funding of Hurriyat Conference leaders, S A S Geelani, Naeem Khan and other, according to the sources.
According to the reports, the NIA noted that funds were coming in from Pakistan to fuel the unrest in Kashmir and hence an enquiry has been registered.
The others against whom the enquiry has been registered are Farooq Ahmed Dar and Gazi Javed Baba apart from militants like Hafiz Saeed of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
Pertinently, Nayeem Khan and others were caught on a video camera saying they had accepted money to fuel the unrest in the valley.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti yesterday told media that the government will take action against those who want to set Kashmir on fire.
