NIA hands over case documents to jailed separatist Aasiya Andrabi

NEW DELHI: The NIA on Thursday handed over copies of electronic and documentary evidence to pro-Pakistani separatist and Dukhtaran-e-Millat head Aasiya Andrabi in a case against her for allegedly waging war against the country.

The National Investigating Agency (NIA) supplied the documents, flied along with the charge sheet, to Andrabi and her two associates — Sofi Fehmeeda and Naheeda Nasreen — on the court’s directions.

The agency also informed special judge Rakesh Syal that a report from Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Chandigarh was awaited and would be handed over to her later.

The accused were produced before the court. The three are currently lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody.

The court has now put up the matter for further hearing on March 5 for scrutiny of documents.

The three were arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir Police in April and the case was later transferred to the NIA in July. (AGENCIES)
