JKLF Chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik Arrested

Day after threatening to march to NIA office in Delhi, JKLF chief Yasin Malik arrested

Hurriyat-G Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani is under house arrest for the past several years now.

This is for the first time since the rise of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir in the early 1990s that a central probe agency has conducted raids in connection with the funding of terrorist and separatist groups.

The NIA on Thursday raided the house of separatist leader Shabbir Shah's aide Zameer Thakur in connection with the terror funding case.

He said that as NIA is trampling every limit of decency and truthfulness and its terrorism has crossed limits, united resistance leadership chose to contest its malicious motives and announced to go to Delhi on 9th September and voluntarily court arrests before this agency so that the falseness and hollowness of Indian propaganda against blood soaked resistance movement is exposed.

The office and house of the influential Shia separatist leader Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi in Budgam were raided in the morning. "A raid was also conducted at a premise at Gurugram".

Besides, the NIA team also raided and searched the house of JKLF leader Showkat Ahmad Bakshi.

The NIA spokesman said offices of the Chartered Accountants of leading Kashmiri businessman Zahoor Watali, who is already under NIA custody, and residences of cross-LoC traders were also searched.

Yasin Malik, who had threatened to launch a protest against the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Delhi, was today arrested in Srinagar.

The leadership comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik said the Kashmir issue is not territorial or a matter of law-and-order but is a political dispute acknowledged by the United Nations through its 18 resolutions that give the right to self-determination to the people of Kashmir to choose their fate. During searches fixed deposits of Rs 1 crore and "incriminating documents" and "suspicious financial records" and electronic devices were seized, the NIA said.

The agency is probing the alleged funding of separatists to fuel unrest in J&K. Kamran Yousuf, the journalist was arrested along with Javed Bhat from Kulgam by the NIA.
