New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday sent two men, including a freelance photo-journalist, to judicial custody for a month in connection with an alleged case of stonepelting in the Kashmir Valley.
District Judge Poonam A Bamba sent Javed Ahmed Bhat from Kulgam and Kamran Yusuf from Pulwama to jail till October 17 after they were produced before the court during in-chamber proceedings on the expiry of their police custody.
The National Investigating Agency (NIA) counsel said they were not required for further custodial interrogation, court sources said.
During its probe into the funding of terror and separatist activities in the Kashmir Valley, the NIA had arrested Bhat and Yusuf on September 5.
According to the agency, the two were involved in stone-pelting incidents besides organising groups of youths who would throw stones at security personnel involved in counter-insurgency operations.
The NIA has arrested seven members of the Hurriyat leadership in a case of alleged funding of terror and subversive activities in the Kashmir Valley to fuel unrest there.
