Srinagar: After five consecutive days of questioning, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday sent home business community leader Mohammad Yasin Khan, telling him, “your questioning is over now.”
Khan went to New Delhi on Monday in response to a summons by the NIA to appear as “witness” in the case of alleged “terror funding” that the NIA registered on May 30.
“Your questioning is over now, NIA officials told Mohammad Yasin Khan,” said spokesperson of the Khan-led KTMF, Farhan Kitab.
Khan is president of KTMF and leads a conglomerate of trade unions called Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA).
“Khan was told by the NIA officials that his questioning was over and he can go home now,” Kitab added.
Khan was handed the NIA summons on last Friday, and PhD scholar at Kashmir University, Aala Fazli, was also handed a summons on the same day.
Fazli was questioned for four days at New Delhi and has been called again on October 3.
The NIA has now summoned independent legislator Er Rasheed for questioning in the alleged case on October 3.
Kitab said that the three trade leaders who accompanied Khan to Delhi will return home possibly on Sunday.
Khan is the third person after Kashmir Bar Association president Mian Abdul Qayoom and Syed Ali Geelani’s son Naseem Geelani to be sent home after questioning in the case. The NIA reportedly told them that they were no longer required to face any questioning.
