Newsroom24x7 Network

New Delhi: The NIA is continuing its investigation into the alleged role and involvement of Hurriyat leaders of Jammu and Kashmir with Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Amir of Jammat-ud-Dawahin and the raising, receiving and collecting funds domestically and abroad through various illegal channels, including hawala, for funding separatist and terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.



Earlier on 30 May 2017, the NIA had registered an FIR under Sections 120B, 121, & 121A of IPC and Sections 13,16,17,18,20,38,39 & 40 of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 on the basis of credible information received by the Central Government that Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Amir of Jammat-ud-Dawah and the secessionist and separatist leaders, including the members and cadres of the Hurriyat Conference, were acting in connivance with active militants of proscribed terrorist organisations Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM), Dukhtarane Millat, Lashkar-e-Toiba(LeT) and other terrorist organisations, associations and gangs for raising, receiving and collecting funds domestically and abroad through various illegal channels, including hawala, for funding separatist and terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir through the funds so collected.


The charge against the Hurriyat leades and cadres is that they have entered into a larger criminal conspiracy for causing disruption in the Kashmir valley by way of pelting stones on the security forces, systematically burning of schools, damage to public property and waging war against India.
