NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) special court has issued non-bailable warrants against Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahudeen in connection with Jammu and Kashmir terror funding case.

The probe agency charged the two with offences under Section 120B, 121 and 121A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Sections 13, 16, 17, 18, 20, 38, 39 and 40 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The NIA approached the court for issuing non-bailable warrants against the two for their active involvement in terror funding for creating unrest in the Kashmir valley and other parts of India.

“They mobilised Pakistan trained terrorists and pushed them into India from Pakistan in connivance with secessionist and separatist leaders for waging war against Government of India with the nefarious design of seceding Jammu and Kashmir from Union of India,” read the statement issued by the NIA.

The probe agency said that they have already filed charge sheet in the instant case on January 18 against 12 accused persons, including Saeed and Salahudeen. Further investigation in the matter is underway. (ANI)
