NIA summons Kashmir Bar President, valley lawyers to boycott courts

Srinagar: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday issued summon to the president of Kashmir High Court Bar Association Mian Qayoom to appear before it in the national capital in connection with the ongoing probe into terror funding on Tuesday.

The lawyers have decided to boycott courts across the Valley on Tuesday

Reacting to NIA summon, the members of Kashmir Bar Association on Monday announced they would boycott courts against notice to their president Mian Qayoom by the National Investigation Agency, asking him to appear before it in New Delhi on Tuesday.

A spokesman of the Bar Association said the issuance of a notice to Mian Qayoom was aimed at “harassing and demonizing the lawyers fraternity for support the cause of the people of Kashmir and for defending under-trials in the state High Court and subordinate courts”.

The lawyers have decided to boycott courts across the Valley on Tuesday.
