NIA summons Geelani's elder son for questioning

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday issued summons to the elder son of Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and 29 others on charges of funding "terror" activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

After the arrest of separatist leader Shabir Ahmad Shah by National Investigation Agency (NIA), the Congress party on Wednesday said that the unrest in Kashmir Valley can not be solved without a political solution. "The BJP should break up with them", Farooq said. Others who have been summoned include businessman, middleman and others.

The middle-level Hurriyat leaders operated through these local leaders to reach the youths, who were given funds to organise stone-pelting protests after suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani's encounter killing in July previous year.

The sting operation, carried by a news channel, showed Hurriyat's Provincial President (Geelani Faction) Naeem Khan admitting on camera that Pakistan is funding the violence in Kashmir Valley. "One of her ministers write the statements that separatist leader (Syed Ali Shah Geelani) give", he said.

Meanwhile, ANI quoted a senior NIA official saying that the agency will move a court to get permission to conduct polygraph test on the arrested Hurriyat leaders.

The agency is also looking into the connection between the arrested separatists leaders and Hafiz Muhammad Saeed - co-founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the chief of Jama'at-ud-Da'wah.

Shah was on Wednesday sent to seven days' Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody by a Delhi court in a decade-old case of money laundering for alleged terror financing. They also provide money to stone pelters to disturb the law and order in the Kashmir Valley.

The NIA is said to be probing all aspects of funding to separatist leaders and how they reportedly used these funds to fuel unrest in the Kashmir Valley.
