Srinagar: On Monday, National Investigation Agency raided the residence of Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Asiya Andrabi at Iqbal Colony 90 feet road in Soura Srinagar.
Official sources said that searches are being carried out the residence of DeM chief in connection with a “sedition case” filed against them by the central agency.
Earlier, A Delhi Court sent Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Aasiya Andrabi to one month judicial custody in connection with a case of allegedly waging war against the country, reported the Press Trust of India.
Andrabi was produced before the court along with her two women associates, after the expiry of their 10-day NIA custody. District Judge Poonam A Bamba sent the trio to judicial custody after the NIA said they were not required for further custodial interrogation.
The NIA had claimed that a probe revealed that they were running a concerted campaign to elicit support from the neighbouring country and accused them of being involved in conspiracy and acts to “severely destabilize the sovereignty and integrity of India”.
The three accused will be kept in Tihar Central Jail.
Besides Andrabi, her associates Sofi Fehmeeda and Nahida Nasreen were also sent to judicial custody. The case was registered against the three women in April this year.
Andrabi was in a prison in Srinagar after the Jammu and Kashmir High Court cancelled her bail last month.
The NIA, on directions of the Union Home Ministry, registered a case against them as well as the organisation, which is banned under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, in April this year.
The agency also said in the FIR that Andrabi and her associates had allegedly spoken, written and also published “visible representations that bring into hatred and contempt apart from exciting disaffection towards the Government of India”.
