New Delhi: The NIA on Tuesday questioned hardline Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s sons, Naeem and Naseem, as part of its probe into a money trail to expose how Pakistan sent cash to separatists for stoking unrest in the Kashmir Valley.
National Investigation Agency officials said the Geelani brothers arrived at the NIA headquarters in New Delhi at around 11 am after evading the counter-terror agency’s earlier summons.
The NIA had issued summons to Naeem, a doctor who was once based in Pakistan, on 27 July and 1 August. He failed to appear because he was hospitalised in Srinagar.
Geelani’s younger son Naseem, who works at an agricultural university in Srinagar, was summoned to appear before NIA on 2 August.
