Yasin Malik arrested by NIA, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq put under house arrest

Separatists have been arrested so that they can not create any kind of ruckus in Kashmir or perhaps Delhi after of their protest march.

After media campaign, NIA was launched into action which has been terrorizing Kashmiri businessmen, traders, lawyers, students, journalists along with resistance leaders and activists.

The NIA has arrested seven people in the case of alleged funding of terror and subversive activities in the Kashmir Valley to fuel unrest there.

He said that as NIA is trampling every limit of decency and truthfulness and its terrorism has crossed limits, united resistance leadership made a decision to contest its malicious motives and announced to go to Delhi on 9th September and voluntarily court arrests before this agency so that the falseness and hollowness of Indian propaganda against blood soaked resistance movement is exposed.

Hurriyat-G Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani is under house arrest for the past several years now.

Three top Kashmiri separatist leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik had threatened to stage a sit-in outside the NIA headquarters in Delhi on September 9 and court arrest to protest against, what they termed as, "vilification" of Kashmiri people by the investigation agency.

A team of the agency raided the house of Abdul Razak Choudhary in Bantlab area of Jammu city. "They had planned a secret meeting and to foil that we arrested Malik and placed Mirwaiz and Geelani under house arrest".

Malik was arrested from his Maisuma residence and later lodged in central jail Srinagar.

NIA investigated the whole matter as a case registered on May 30 in which the leader of the Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa and banned terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, Hafiz Saeed, was named as an accused.

President of Kashmir Bar Association Mian Qayoom was questioned by the NIA for almost seven hours on Wednesday.

An ED official, requesting anonymity, told IANS that the financial probe agency would file a case under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) against the separatist leader taking cognizance of the NIA FIR in connection with the case.
