Srinagar: A team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) reached here on Friday to question chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani and three others, alleged to be involved in “subversive” activities and receiving funds from LeT chief Hafiz Saeed.
The investigating agency has registered a Preliminary Enquiry (PE) against Geelani and Nayeem Khan, who was seen on television during a sting operation purportedly confessing to receiving money from Pakistan-based militant groups, Farooq Ahmed Dar alias ‘Bitta Karate’ and Gazi Javed Baba of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
An NIA spokesperson said the separatists were receiving funds from Pakistan-based Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Saeed to carry out subversive activities in the Kashmir Valley, including pelting stones at security forces, damaging public property and burning schools and other government establishments.
The NIA has also taken cognisance of a news item related to the recording of conversations between a TV reporter and leaders of separatist groups operating in the Kashmir Valley in this regard, he said.
