Mirwaiz heads to Delhi to appear before NIA
Srinagar, April 08, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq took an early flight to New Delhi to appear before the infamous India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA), today, in connection with a fake case registered against him. The NIA served him three notices repeatedly. The decision to appear before the NIA was taken by the Mirwaiz on Sunday following an executive meeting of the Hurriyat forum. It was also decided that executive members of the forum would accompany the Mirwaiz to the Indian capital, New Delhi.
Meanwhile, the forum in a statement issued in Srinagar said that despite having nothing to do with the matter the Mirwaiz through his legal council had said that he was ready to cooperate in the investigation but had asked the agency to hold it in Srinagar as he had several genuine concerns including serious security concerns in New Delhi. The forum added that the NIA had refused to conduct the investigation in Srinagar. The statement deplored that the agency did take into account the other concerns and are insisting on investigation in Delhi.
