Kashmiri Separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today reached Delhi, to appear before the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for interrogation in connection with Jammu and Kashmir terror funding case. So far, the separatist leader has been summoned by the NIA three times.
The decision to appear before the NIA was taken by the Mirwaiz last evening following an executive meeting of the Hurriyat group. Further, it was decided that executive members of the Hurriyat, including Professor Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone and Masroor Ansari would accompany the Mirwaiz to the national capital.
The Mirwaiz has appealed people to remain calm and peaceful and not react adversely to his being summoned to Delhi. Last year, in the month of November, the NIA Special Court of Patiala House in New Delhi issued Non-Bailable Warrants (NBWs) against the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Mohd Yusuf Shah Salahuddin in the terror funding case.
