Investigation into terror fund: NIA quizzes Geelani's son-in-law again
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday again questioned Altaf Ahmed Shah, son-in-law of hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, in connection with its probe into the funding of terror and subversive activities in Kashmir.
Shah, popularly known as Altaf Fantoosh,was earlier questioned by the NIA on June 9 about his movable and other properties, including houses in the Valley as well as in Jammu, and the source for their funding, official sources said.
Shah, who arrived again at the NIA headquarters on Monday, was questioned by a team of agency officials about the alleged funding of the Geelani-led Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, the sources said.
There was no immediate reaction from Shah's camp but his father-in-law had on Sunday questioned the role of the NIA and said the probe agency was being used as a "war weapon" against
separatist leadership in Kashmir.
Geelani, while chairing a meeting a day after his son- in-law was questioned by the NIA, alleged that the agency had crossed all limits and there was no legal justification for such arbitrary measures.
