JKLF Chief Malik arrested by NIA in alleged terror funding case

Srinagar: The National Investigation Agency on Wednesday arrested JKLF chief Yasin Malik in connection with a case related to the funding of ‘terror and separatist’ groups in Jammu and Kashmir.

Malik was brought to New Delhi on Tuesday evening after a special NIA court in Jammu gave the go ahead for his custodial interrogation by the probe agency, they said.

In March, Malik was booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), and shifted to Kot Balwal jail in Jammu. Before being slapped with PSA, he was detained on February 22, and lodged at Kothibagh police station.
