The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday produced JKLF chief Yasin Malik before a Delhi court in connection with a case related to alleged funding of militant groups in Jammu and Kashmir.

Malik was produced before special judge Rakesh Syal.

He was on Tuesday shifted to Delhi’s Tihar Jail after the NIA secured his production remand in connection with the case.

Malik, who was arrested last month and shifted to Kot Balwal Jail in Jammu, will be facing questions from the NIA related to funding of his organisation.

The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has reserved its judgment on a plea of the CBI for reopening three-decade-old cases in which Malik was an accused.

The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief is facing charges of kidnapping and murder for being allegedly involved in abducting Rubaiya Sayeed, daughter of then Union Home Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed in 1989 and killing of four Indian Air Force personnel in the early part of 1990.

NIA had approached a special court in Jammu, seeking Malik’s remand for custodial interrogation in the funding case.

The JKLF was recently banned under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.__GK News
