A Delhi court on Wednesday sent Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik to NIA custody till April 22 after the agency sought his custodial interrogation in connection with a case related to funding of separatists and terror groups in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief was brought to Delhi’s Tihar Jail on Tuesday evening after the NIA secured his production remand in connection with the terror funding case.
The central investigation agency will question Malik regarding the funding of his organisation. The NIA probe seeks to identify the chain of players behind the financing of terrorist activities, pelting of stones on security forces, burning down of schools and damaging of government establishments.
Last month, the central government had banned JKLF under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, saying the outfit is actively engaged in inciting secession and is illegally funneling funds for fomenting terrorism.
