Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday in allegations of funding the terror and separatist groups in the Jammu and Kashmir area and participating in the anti-national activities. A special NIA court in Jammu gave the go-ahead to the accused after which he was brought to the capital for his custodial interrogation by the probe agency into the matter and the allegations.

JKLF chief was accused in the kidnapping of the daughter of the Union home minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, Rubaiya Saeed, in 1989. Yasin Malik was also accused of killing four Indian army force officials in 1990.

Yasin Malik was taken under the custody in February and later was shifted to Tihar Jail under the Police Protection. Later on, the accused was taken into preventive custody by the Jammu and Kashmir police and was shifted to the Kot Balwal Jail in Jammu.

The National Investigative agency registered a case against the separatist leaders who have connived with the active militants of the terrorist organizations Hizbul Mujahideen, Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). Lashkar-e-Taiba was banned after the Pulwama attack on the CRPF convoy for its anti-national actions and the funding of the terror groups.

The case included the accusations of raising, receiving and collecting funds through illegal means for the terrorist activities in the Jammu and Kashmir. The illegal transactions are motivated by the hawala transactions that are causing the disruption in the valley. These separatists often burn schools, damage public property, wage war against India, provoke anti-national sentiments in the locals and fund the terrorists that are responsible for attack all across the country.

The ban on the terror funding groups came into force after the Pulwama attack on Kashmir in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed in a suicide bombing by a terrorist.
