New Delhi (India), Aug 31 (ANI): A special court of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday sent Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin's son Syed Shakeel Yusuf to a 10-day remand in connection with a 2011 terror funding case.
The latest development comes after the NIA arrested Shakeel Yusuf from Srinagar on Thursday for allegedly receiving money from his father with regards to the 2011 case. The Hizbul Mujahideen chief's other son, Shahid Yusuf, is already in custody in connection to the same case.
The NIA, in April this year, charge sheeted Shahid Yusuf under Section 120-B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Sections 13, 17, 18, 20, 21, 38 and 40 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, for allegedly willfully raising, receiving and collecting 'terror funds' and holding proceeds of terrorism' for furtherance of terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
The case, which was registered by the NIA in April 2011, relates to the alleged transfer of money from Pakistan to Jammu and Kashmir through hawala channels via New Delhi, which, the agency believes, was used in funding terror-related activities. (ANI)
