New Delhi: 

A special court of National Investigation Agency (NIA) today issued a production warrant against Aasiya Andrabi, Sofi Fehmeeda, and Naheeda Nasreen of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, a banned terrorist organisation, after taking cognisance of recent charge sheet on terror charges against them.

The NIA court has issued the production warrant against the three accused women for December 12. The production warrant is an order issued by a criminal court of law to produce a person before the court in connection with criminal proceedings pending against him.

In the charge sheet, the NIA has accused the three women of allegedly engaging in anti-India activities and making attempts to incite the general populace of Kashmir for an armed rebellion against the Indian Government with aid and assistance of terrorist organisations based in neighbouring Pakistan.

The probe agency also established that the chief of Dukhtaran-e-Millat Andrabi was in close contact with global terrorist and Mumbai 26/11 mastermind Hafeez Mohammad Saeed. The NIA also told the court that they were allegedly running a social media campaign to gain support from Pakistani establishments including terrorist entities.

The three accused were arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir Police in April this year and the case was later transferred to the NIA in July for further investigation.

NIA To Probe Terror Link After 3 Students Arrested In Punjab


Police had said students were associated with Kashmir-based terror outfit. (Representational)

Chandigarh: 

The Punjab government has decided to hand over to the NIA a case involving three Kashmiri students who were arrested for their alleged association with a terror outfit.

The students – Zahid Gulzar, Mohd. Idriss Shah and Yusuf Rafiq Bhatt – were arrested from an engineering college in Jalandhar last month and two weapons, including an assault rifle, and explosives were seized from them.

Police had said they were associated with Kashmir-based terror outfit Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH).

The AGH reportedly has links with the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and is headed by Zakir Rashid Bhatt alias Zakir Mussa, who masterminded and guided attacks on the Maqsudan police station in Jalandhar on September 14, they had said. 

The decision to hand over the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) was taken after discussions on the issue between the state government and the Home Ministry, Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Suresh Arora said in an release said.

It said the decision came in the wake of “the inter-state and international ramifications of the case”.

The students were arrested in a joint operation by the Punjab Police and the Jammu and Kashmir Police’s Special Operations Group (SoG) from the hostel of CT Institute of Engineering Management and Technology in Shahpur on the outskirts of Jalandhar.

Two weapons, including an assault rifle, were also seized from them along with explosives, police had said.

Initial investigations had revealed that the students were allegedly associated with terror outfit AGH, they had said.

The decision to hand over the investigations to the NIA was aimed at ensuring speedy and more effective probe into the matter, the DGP said

“The state government was also of the view that the growing attempts by Pakistan-based ISI and terror outfits and elements based abroad to revive terrorism in Punjab required strong and concerted efforts by the national agency which has the mandate to investigate all over the country and even abroad,” Mr Arora said in the release.

The Punjab Police, he said, would extend all support and help to the NIA to ensure that the investigations are completed, and the nexus of terrorist outfits and elements based in India and abroad is identified and broken at the earliest.

The release said while deciding to hand over the case to the NIA, the state and central government also took note of a separate case in which two Kashmiri students were arrested by the Punjab Police on November 5 in connection with the Maqsudan police station incident.

This is indicative of the efforts by Pakistan spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to expand the arc of militancy on India’s western border, Arora said.

He also underlined the need to unravel the entire conspiracy and network built by these outfits and individuals in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.

The DGP said the state police is keeping a close eye to pre-empt any further incidents of targeting police stations and officers in Punjab.

Police is taking all the required steps to ensure that anti-national forces are not allowed to disturb the peace and communal harmony in the state, he said.

New Delhi: 

A special National Investigation Agency or NIA court has issued non-bailable warrants against Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin for their involvement in terror funding activities, officials said Friday.

“NIA approached the special NIA court for issuing non-bailable warrants against the above accused for their active involvement in terror funding for creating unrest in the Kashmir valley and other parts of India,” NIA’s spokesperson said in New Delhi.

The two mobilised Pakistan-trained terrorists and pushed them into India in conspiracy with and separatists in Jammu and Kashmir, the agency said.

The NIA has already filed charges in the case on January 18 against 12 accused people including Hafiz Saeed and Syed Salahuddin.

The probe agency had filed the 12,794-page charge sheet against Saeed and Salahuddin for conspiring to wage war against the government (Section 121 of Indian Penal Code) by carrying out terrorist and secessionist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the NIA, the case was registered on May 30, 2017 and the first arrests made on July 24 last year.

The agency said that during the course of investigation, its teams conducted searches at over 60 locations spread across Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana and Delhi and seized over 950 incriminating documents and over 600 electronic devices.

Over 300 witnesses were examined during the probe, it said.

The NIA said the scrutiny and analysis of the documents and digital devices established that the accused Hurriyat leaders, the terrorists and the stone-throwers were carrying out terrorist attacks and orchestrating violence in Jammu and Kashmir as a part of their “well-planned” criminal conspiracy.

It said that conspiracy was hatched with active support, connivance and funding from terrorist organisations based in Pakistan and its agencies to achieve their objective of secession of the Jammu and Kashmir by waging war against the Indian government.

NIA Probes Mosque In Haryana’s Palwal Allegedly Built With Funds From Lashkar-e-Taiba


The NIA said it is investigating the source of funding of the mosque in Haryana’s Palwal

Palwal: 

A mosque in Haryana’s Palwal district has come under the scanner of the National Investigation Agency or NIA over alleged links with a terror group in funding its construction. The NIA has said its probe indicated that the mosque was built with the help of funds received from Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba or LeT.

The LeT and the mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Hafiz Saeed, have been designated as global terrorists by the US government.

The Khulafala-e-Rashideen mosque in Uttawar village was searched by the NIA’s officers on October 3, days after three men including the imam of the mosque, Mohammad Salman, were arrested in Delhi in a case linked to alleged terror-funding.

An NIA spokesperson said the imam got a huge sum of money from a Dubai-based Pakistani citizen. “The imam of the masjid, Mohammed Salman, received Rs 70 lakh from a Dubai-based Pakistani citizen named Kamran. Salman received the money through hawala from Dubai. We believe that Kamran is working for LeT and also provide funds for terrorist activities in India,” the spokesperson told news agency ANI.

Some residents of Palwal’s Uttawar village, however, said their village mosque was not funded by the terror group. “The land is legal and people from many villages have funded construction of this mosque,” said Ramesh Prajapati, village headman.

The NIA said it is also questioning other people at the mosque and checking the account books. Papers having details of donations have been seized, the probe agency said.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said they will take action after a thorough investigation. “This issue has come to our notice. But only after investigations… what kind of issue it is will be known and whatever action will be needed, we will do that,” Mr Khattar told reporters in Palwal when asked for his comments on the issue.

At a press conference in Chandigarh, senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala, when asked to comment on the matter, said, “If it is true, then it is worrisome”.

“Terrorism has no colour, religion or caste. If any person is found involved in anti-India activities, then on the basis of the evidences and proof available, action as per law should be taken,” the Congress leader told news agency Press Trust of India.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has busted a terror funding module in Delhi led by Pakistan-based terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), according to an official statement issued Wednesday.

The NIA carried out searches at multiple places in Daryaganj, Nizamuddin and Kucha Ghasiram areas here on Tuesday, it said. An FIR to probe the terror funding module was registered by the agency in July this year.

According to the FIR, some Delhi-based individuals were receiving funds from FIF operatives based abroad and were using it for terror activities.

During investigation, it emerged that Mohammad Salman, a resident of the Nizamuddin area in Delhi, was in regular touch with a Dubai-based Pakistani national, who in turn is connected to the Deputy Chief of Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation, a front organisation of the proscribed terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

“The accused person has been receiving funds, being sent by FIF operator and his associates, through Hawala operators. Accused persons along with other persons in various countries including Pakistan, UAE etc are sending money through Hawala to India to further their nefarious activities and create unrest in India and carry out the terrorist activities,” the statement issued by the NIA said.

Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Syed Salahuddin’s Son, Syed Shakeel Ahmed, Arrested By NIA In Srinagar In Terror Funding Case


Syed Salahuddin’s son was arrested in Srinagar by a joint team of NIA, CRPF and local police

Srinagar: 

Terror group Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Syed Salahuddin’s son was arrested this morning in Srinagar by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). Syed Shakeel Yousuf, accused in a 2011 case of terror funding, was arrested after a raid at the city’s Rambagh area.

Shakeel is a laboratory technician at a prestigious government hospital, the Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, said a police officer.

He was allegedly receiving money from his father, a globally wanted terrorist.

The case, registered by the NIA in 2011, relates to the transfer of money from Pakistan to Jammu and Kashmir through illegal channels via Delhi. The agency believes the money was used in funding terrorism and secessionist activities.

The NIA team, along with the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and local police caught Shakeel, the second son of Syed Salahuddin.

Another son of the Hizbul chief, Syed Shahid Yousuf, was arrested in June.

Shahid Yousuf was working with the Jammu and Kashmir agricultural department when he was arrested. He was placed under suspension by the department.

The NIA alleged that Shakeel received funds through a US-based international wire transfer company from Aijaz Ahmed Bhat, another accused who is missing and is believed to be in Saudi Arabia.

Shakeel was “one of several Indian contacts” of Bhat, who had been in telephonic contact with him for receiving money transfer codes, said an official.

The NIA has so far filed charges against six people, including GM Bhat, a close aide of separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mohammed Siddiq Ganai, Ghulam Jeelani Liloo and Farooq Ahmed Dagga. All four are in judicial custody.

Two others — Mohammed Maqbool Pandit and Bhat — were also chargesheeted by the NIA but are missing. An Interpol Red Corner notice has been issued against them.

Syed Salahuddin was declared a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the US Department of State.

Besides heading Hizbul Mujahideen, he is the chairman of the United Jehad Council (UJC), a conglomerate of terrorist outfits operating in the Kashmir valley.

The NIA has registered two others cases related to terror funding — one in November 2011 and the other in May this year.

The agency had filed a charge sheet against 10 people, including Syed Salahuddin, in the April 2011 case.

In the recent case, the NIA arrested 10 people, including some close relatives and aides of Geelani.
