Srinagar: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday questioned four sons of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin and also his son-in-law and son-in-law’s brother in connection with a 2011 “terror funding” case here.
NIA summoned Salahuddin’s sons Syed Shakil Ahmed, Syed Javid Ahmed, Syed Abdul Wahid, Syed Abdul Mueed, and Hizb chief’s son-in-law Umar Farooq and his brother Syed Khalid.
“NIA summoned us and sought our bank details,” Umer Farooq told Kashmir Reader. “The agency also questioned us about our activities since our childhood till date. They also questioned whether we were part of terror funding or not.”
The case, registered by the NIA in 2011, relates to the alleged transfer of money from Pakistan to Jammu and Kashmir through Hawala channels via Delhi, which the agency believed was used in “funding terrorism and secessionist activities” in the state.
