Separatist leader Mirwaiz Umer Farooq reaches NIA office

Desk. Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Monday reached National Investigation Agency (NIA) office to face interrogation in connection with alleged terror funding case on Monday.

Mirwaiz who arrived in Delhi today along with three other separatist leaders will be questioned by the NIA at its headquarters over his alleged involvement in the terror funding case. The separatist leader left for Delhi from Srinagar this morning.

Meanwhile, the Hurriyat Conference, in a statement, condemned the summoning of Mirwaiz and alleged that its chairman was being deliberately harassed and there was an effort to criminalise leadership for their political stand.

It further said that Hurriyat is an alliance of political parties that are working towards the peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue and that associating with terror is “deliberate victimisation.” It also rejected the involvement of Mirwaiz and any Hurriyat leader in the terror funding case.
