NIA gets 10-Day custody of Separatists Masarat Alam, Asiya Andrabi, Shabir Shah in terror funding case

A Delhi court on Tuesday sent separatists Masarat Alam, Asiya Andrabi and Shabir Shah to 10-day National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody in a terror funding case involving JuD chief Hafiz Saeed.

Additional Sessions Judge Rakesh Syal sent the three to NIA custody till June 14. The NIA had demanded 15-day custodial interrogation of the trio in a case related to terror funding. 

According to the sources, Shah and Andrabi were already in custody in separate cases while Alam was brought from Jammu and Kashmir on a transit remand.

In May 2017, the probe agency had filed an FIR against the separatists charging them for links with terror outfits.

Andrabi was also alleged to have received funds from the Lakshar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief to continue stone pelting in Kashmir.

The NIA had filed a charge sheet in 2018 against 12 persons including Hafiz Saeed and another terror mastermind Syed Salahuddin in connection with the terror funding case.
