NIA issues fresh notice to Umar Farooq to appear before its Delhi headquarters
New Delhi, Mar.14 (HS): National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday issued fresh summons to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to appear for questioning at the probe agency headquarters in connection with a financing money laundering case, officials said. According to the notice, the Mirwaiz has been asked to appear at NIA headquarters in New Delhi on March 18, the agency officials said. It is worthwhile to mention here that separatist leader and Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had refused to appear before the National Investigative Agency (NIA) in Delhi. The NIA summoned the separatist leader and asked him to come to Delhi on 10 Mar but he did not turn up. Through his reply to NIA he also raked up religion to shield himself claiming that the institution of Mirwaiz is embedded in the cultural ethos of Kashmir. His counsel’s statement read: “The response states that the notice in question appears to have been issued on the basis of fallacious assumptions and misinformation solely aimed at maligning ''the Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir'', knowing his status and position, it appears to be the outcome of considerations other than the law.” Hindusthan Samachar/Pramod
