NIA registers probe against Geelani, three others

The Hurriyat had claimed that the NIA had earlier "harassed and questioned" party leaders Ayaz Akbar, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai and Syed Geelani's son-in-law Altaf Ahmad Shah. "Terrorism and militancy, and those who have taken to violence, will be treated differently", the minister said in Srinagar on Thursday.

The four are suspected to have received funds from militant outfits like LeT, JuD to pay off people carrying out violent protests and arson in the Kashmir Valley, where more than 100 civilians have been killed since July previous year.

The NIA will summon for questioning Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Nayeem Khan, Gazi Javed Baba and Farooq Ahmed Dar alias Bitta Karate - four Valley-based pro-resistance leaders it has named in a preliminary enquiry (PE), the report said.
