Shabir Shah's ED remand extended by six days

NIA for questioning in Delhi

The Patiala court on Friday extended the National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody of four Kashmiri separatists, including son-in- law of Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Geelani by 10 more days, while three separatist leaders were sent to judicial custody for a month in the case.

While speaking to ANI on the same, Rijiju said, "The work they are doing is important for the nation".

Geelani's son-in-law Altaf Ahmed Shah and other six accused Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah, Shahid-ul-Islam, Mehrajuddin Kalwal, Nayeem Khan and Farooq Ahmed Dar were arrested on July 24 in the case of alleged funding of terror and subversive activities in the Kashmir Valley.

Court sources quoted Luthra as saying that electronic evidences are also required to be retrieved and analysed.

"At the time of receiving NIA notice, I have less than ₹500 as my bank balance, while loan liability is of ₹18.8 lakh", he said.

Earlier today, the ED submitted an application before a Delhi court for further remand of Shah. NIA has claimed that they don't want the remand for three of the separatists.

The protesters denounced the detentions of resistance leaders by NIA and the recent killings across occupied Kashmir.

They were booked on charges of criminal conspiracy and waging war against India.

The 7 Hurriyat leaders were produced in the Delhi court earlier today.

The police custody of Shah and others came as the NIA told Special Judge O P Saini that they were to be taken to far-off places in Kashmir.

Geelani's close aides Tehreek-e-Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar and Peer Saifullah were arrested by the NIA from the Valley.
