NIA arrests Hizbul chief's son Shahid Yusuf in 2011 terror funding case

NIA arrests Salahudin’s son in New Delhi

The National Investigation Agency on Tuesday arrested Syed Salahuddin's son Syed Shahid Yusuf in connection with terror funding case.

The NIA in a statement charged 42-year-old Shahid Yousuf of "receiving and collecting funds through global wire money transfer" from a Saudi Arabia-based Aizaz Ahmad Bhat, who is accused of being a member of the Pakistan-based terror group. He was served the summons on October 16 to present himself before NIA investigators at their New Delhi office, today (October 24).

The 2011 terror funding case seems to be finding its ground now after NIA nabbed four accused in 2011 and filed a charge sheet. He will be arrested soon, said a senior NIA official.

Syed Shahid Yusuf came under the NIA's radar after it found that he was in regular contact with one Aijaz Ahmad Bhat, who is said to be a Hizbul operator working from one of the Middle-East countries.

The NIA has so far filed two charge sheets against six people which included G M Bhat, a close aide of pro-Pakistan separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mohammed Siddiq Ganai, Ghulam Jeelani Liloo and Farooq Ahmed Dagga. Maqbool Pandit and Aijaz Ahmed Bhat are running away.

Syed Shahid Yusuf works with the agriculture department as a village Agriculture Extension Assistant and has a family home in Soibugh village in Budgam.

The 2011 terror funding case pertains to terror money sent through hawala channels by militants based in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia to Jammu and Kashmir.

"Shahid over the years has been receiving and collecting funds through worldwide wire money transfer from" Hizbul Mujahideen militant Aijaz Bhat, a Srinagar resident now based in Saudi Arabia, an NIA statement said. Former Intelligence Bureau Director Dineshwar Sharma was named as its representative for the talks with all stakeholders in the State. The money exchange between Aijaz and Yusuf took place in four instalments from 2011-14.
