NIA carries out raids in Srinagar, Jammu; Yasin Malik detained

NIA raids Hurriyat leader Aga Hassan's residence in Budgam

The leaders include Shia cleric and politician Agha Syed Hassan al-Mousvi in central Budgam and Ghulam Nabi Sumji in southern Bijbehara towns.

The Enforcement Directorate is likely to register a money laundering case against some separatist leaders facing investigation by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) under charges of receiving terror funding from across the border to stoke unrest in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said on Thursday.

The arrest comes a day after the Joint Hurriyat leadership of Kashmir announced to hold a day long protest in New Delhi outside the headquarters of National Investigation Agency (NIA) over arrests and warrants against dozens of hurriyat leaders since last few months.

Apart from Yasin Malik and Umar Farooq, another separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has also been confined to his home.

"During searches, FDs worth over Rs 1 crore, incriminating material, suspect financial records, property-related documents and electronic devices have been seized", he said adding the suspects were questioned about the incriminating recoveries made from them.

In July, the NIA had arrested seven people including Shahid ul Islam, the spokesman of Farooq; and Altaf Shah, son-in-law of Geelani.

Muhammad Yasin Malik was today arrested from JKLF offices at Abi Guzar and immediately shifted to central jail Srinagar on a five day long judicial remand.

On Wednesday, the agency had raided 24 places in Kashmir Valley and in Delhi focusing mainly on traders, who allegedly have links with the terror funding case under probe by the NIA. "They had planned a secret meeting and to foil that we arrested Malik and placed Mirwaiz and Geelani under house arrest".

After the NIA summoned Kashmir High Court Bar Association (HCBA) president Mian Abdul Qayoom to Delhi, the association on Thursday wrote an open letter to the Chief Justice of India.
