Court order on HM chief on Sept 24

NEW DELHI, Sept 21:
A Delhi court today said it would on Thursday pass an order on framing of charges in a case in which Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) chief Syed Salahuddin was chargesheeted for allegedly receiving nearly Rs 80 crore funds from Pakistan to carry out terror activities across India.
Additional Sessions Judge Neena Bansal Krishna said the order, scheduled to be passed today, would be delivered on September 24 as it was not ready yet.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had chargesheeted Salahuddin and 11 others, including eight who are based in Pakistan and declared proclaimed offenders by court earlier.
Out of the 12 chargesheeted accused, only four were arrested.
They have been named in the charge sheet for offences under Sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 121-A (conspiring to commit certain offences against the State) of the IPC and under various provisions of the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).
NIA had alleged in the charge sheets that banned outfit HM was “regularly receiving funds from the neighbouring country” which were given to “active terrorists, families of killed terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.”
It had said that about Rs 80 crore was received for terror activities in India in past eight years and the funds continued to pour in from Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
NIA had said that “in the garb of one Jammu Kashmir Affectees Relief Trust (JKART), the terror outfit is actively involved in furthering the terrorist activities in India.”
In its first charge sheet, besides Salahuddin, the NIA has named as accused Mohd Shafi Shah, Talib Lali, Ghulam Nabi Khan, Umar Farooq Shera, Manzoor Ahmed Dar, Zaffar Hussain Bhatt, Nazir Ahamd Dar, Abdul Majeed Sofi and Mubarak Shah.
The agency had later filed supplementary charge sheets against two other arrested accused Mushtaq Ahmed Lone and Muzzafar Ahmed Dar. Besides them, Mohd Shafi Shah and Talib Lali were arrested while the others are absconding.
NIA had said that head office of JKART was in Rawalpindi in Pakistan and its branch offices are in Islamabad and Muzaffarabad. (PTI)
