New Delhi [India], December 22 (ANI): A special court of the National Investigating Agency (NIA) on Friday extended the judicial custody of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin's son Syed Shahid Yousuf till December 22 in connection with a terror-funding case.

The court had last month extended Yousuf's judicial custody till December 22.

Yosuf was arrested by the NIA in October after he was found receiving and collecting funds through international wire money transfer from Saudi Arabia-based Hizbul Mujahideen member Aijaz Ahmed Bhat.

He was also suspended by the Jammu and Kashmir Government from his agriculture department job in the state.

The NIA has already filed two charge sheets against six other accused in this case in 2011.

Out of these accused, two are in custody and others, including Salahuddin, are absconding and residing in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). (ANI)
