NIA arrests JKLF Chief Yasin Malik in Terror Funding Case

  • April 10, 2019

New Delhi, Apr 10 : The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday arrested Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chief Yasin Malik in connection with a case related to the funding of terror and separatist groups in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

Malik was brought to the national capital on Tuesday evening after a special NIA court in Jammu gave the go ahead for his custodial interrogation by the probe agency, they said.

The JKLF chief, who was shifted to Tihar jail under police protection, was taken into preventive custody in February by the Jammu and Kashmir police and shifted to Jammu’s Kot Balwal jail.

Malik, whose organisation JKLF was banned last month by the Centre, is also facing two CBI cases. These relate to the kidnapping of Rubaiya Saeed, daughter of then Union home minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, in 1989, and the killing of four IAF personnel in 1990.
