Must Read



The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday filed chargesheet against People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Waheed Para and two others in connection with a terror case in which suspended Jammu and Kashmir police officer Davinder Singh was arrested last year.

The conspiracy case involves terror outfit Hizb-ul-Mujahideen. Singh, then serving DSP, was arrested by the agency in January, 2020. He was granted bail by a Delhi court on June 19 last year.

The supplementary chargesheet against Para, Shaheen Ahmad Lone and Tafazul Hussain Parimoo has been filed under section 120B of the IPC, sections 17, 18, 38, 39 & 40 of the UA (P) Act, and section 25 (1AA) of Arms Act and section 6 of the Explosive Substances Act in NIA Special Court Jammu, according to a press release. Earlier, chargesheet had been filed against eight people in this case.

Investigation by the central agency showed that Lone and Parimoo were part of gun running from across the Line of Control (LoC) for terrorists of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen and Lashkar e Taiba (LeT), the release added.

Waheed Para on the other hand, was a part of a conspiracy which also raised and transferred funds to Hizbul terrorists for procuring terrorist hardware. the NIA said. The PDP leader played an important role in ‘sustaining political-separatist-terrorist nexus’ in the Union territory, the agency further said.

Para was arrested by the agency on November 25 last year and was granted bail by the NIA court on January 9 this year. However, two days later, he was again held by the Jammu and Kashmir Police on January 11 and continues to remain in custody. Slamming his re-arrest, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti alleged in February that Para was being kept under inhuman conditions and tortured to admit false allegations.
