NIA sleuths assisted by the police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) raided Hassan’s home

According to sources, the NIA sleuths assisted by the police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) raided Hassan’s home early in the moring in connection with terror funding.

The agency had raided 24 places in the Kashmir Valley and in Delhi on Wednesday, focusing mainly on traders who allegedly have links with the terror funding case presently under its scanner.

Three senior separatist leaders, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik have announced they would takeout a protest march to the NIA headquarters in New Delhi and court arrest on September 9.

The agency had in July arrested seven separatist leaders and a prominent local businessman in connection with the probe into the terror funding by Pakistan-based terrorist groups to stoke unrest in the valley.

President of Kashmir Bar Association Mian Qayoom was questioned by the NIA for nearly seven hours on Wednesday.

Lawyers in the valley have decided to stay away from courts till Qayoom returned from Delhi.

Meanwhile, the NIA has achieved a breakthrough by getting one of the arrested accused in the aforementioned case record a confessional statement before a magistrate nailing the alleged role of the top Hurriyat brass in channelising money sourced from Pakistan to carry out terrorist activities in the Kashmir valley.

According to English News channel Times Now, the statement has been recorded under Section 164 of CrPC, making it admissible in court.

The News channel also informed that the Hurriyat `insider’ who agreed to turn `approver’ has revealed how top Kashmiri separatists allegedly further agenda of Pakistan-based forces in Kashmir valley.

The funds are channelised into Kashmir by the hawala route or through bank accounts of Kashmiri businessmen, before they reach Hurriyat leaders who in turn pass them on to terror commanders operating in J&K through trusted conduits.
