Three National Investigation Agency (NIA) officers, who were probing a terror funding case linked to Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, have been transferred for allegedly asking for bribe.
“In this matter, a complaint of misconduct was received by NIA. An enquiry into the allegations is being conducted by a DIG rank officer. In the meantime three concerned officials have been transferred out to ensure a fair probe,” an NIA release stated.
The central agency was investigating how funds were being sent to India to set up terror networks.
One of the transferred officers is a Superintendent of Police, who has also been involved in cases like the 2007 Samjhauta blast case. The other two are junior officers. All three were investigating the Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), run by Hafiz Saeed, chief of Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
