New Delhi: The NIA on Friday filed a charge sheet against Syed Shahid Yusuf, son of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, in a 2011 terror funding case.
District judge Poonam Bamba posted the matter for considering the charge sheet on 4 May.
The 42-year-old Yusuf, who was posted as an agricultural assistant in central Kashmir’s Budgam, was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on 24 October last year.
Yusuf’s bail plea was dismissed by the trial court on 7 March. He is in judicial custody.
The NIA had earlier alleged that the accused was linked with banned militant organisations such as Hizbul Mujahideen.
It had said the case was registered on the basis of information that alleged funds from Pakistan were sent to Jammu and Kashmir via Delhi through hawala channels. (Agencies)
