A Delhi court has sent JKLF chief Yasin Malik to NIA custody till April 22 after the agency sought his custodial interrogation in connection with a case related to funding of separatists and terror groups in Jammu and Kashmir. Malik was produced before special judge Rakesh Syal, where the National Investigation Agency arrested him inside the courtroom and sought 15-day custodial interrogation.
The proceedings in the case were heard in-camera. Malik was brought to the national capital yesterday evening after a special NIA court in Jammu gave the go-ahead for his custodial interrogation by the probe agency.
The J&K Liberation Front chief, who was shifted to Tihar jail under police protection, was taken into preventive custody in February by the Jammu and Kashmir police and shifted to Jammu’s Kot Balwal jail.
