Mirwaiz alongwith APHC (M) Ex members will travel to Delhi on an NIA summon
Srinagar: Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq would travel to New Delhi to appear for questioning before the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in an alleged militancy funding case, a spokesman of the amalgam said on Sunday.
Last week, the NIA issued a third summon to Mirwaiz to appear for questioning in the case. Mirwaiz had earlier refused to travel to Delhi citing security concerns.
The spokesman said that the Mirwaiz will travel to Delhi for questioning.
However, he said, the executive members of APHC, comprising Prof. Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone and Masroor Abbas Ansari would accompany Mirwaiz to New Delhi.
“Despite repeated attempts to hold the investigation in Srinagar, the NIA has refused to conduct it in Srinagar and has said that it would take care of his (Mirwaiz) security concern. It is unfortunate that they did take into account and are insisting on investigation in Delhi.
It has been decided in the meeting that all the executive members will accompany Mirwaiz to New Delhi for the investigation,” said the spokesman in the statement.
The decision was taken on Sunday during a crucial meeting at the residence of Mirwaiz in Nigeen, Srinagar.
However, the APHC did not say when would be flying to New Delhi.
