The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted fresh searches at 11 locations in Jammu and Kashmir and five locations in New Delhi as part of its probe into the ‘terror’ funding case.
The searches, which the central agency termed as follow-up action, were going on across the several locations in Kashmir.
The agency has so far arrested seven people – Hurriyat chief Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Ahmed Shah, Ayaz Akbar Khanday, Mehrajuddin Kalwal, Peer Saifullah (all from Geelani’s faction of Hurriyat), Shahid-ul-Islam (of the faction led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq), Nayeem Khan of the Jammu Kashmir National Front and Farooq Ahmed Dar alias Bitta Karatay of the J&K Liberation Front (R). The agency now plans to summon Geelani, Malik, Shabir Shah, and Farooq. Geelani’s two sons have already been questioned by the NIA in the case.
