NIA Team Arrested Shakeel, Son of Syed Salahuddin Chief Of Hizb-Ul-Mujahideen
Shakeel is allegedly accused of taking money from his father. He is currently working as a Laboratory Assistant in a prestigious Government Hospital.
NIA has alleged that Shakeel received money from another accused Ejaz Ahmad Bhat in this case through an international online company related to money transactions from the US. The Saudi king of Saudi Arabia is absconding. The agency alleges that Shakeel is one of Bhat’s many Indian contacts, who was in touch with him on the phone for transaction codes of money. This case, filed in April 2011 by the NIA, is related to the transfer of funds from Pakistan to Jammu and Kashmir via the Hawala medium through Delhi. The agency believes that these funds were used for terrorist funding and separatist activities.
In this connection, the investigating agency has so far filed two charge-sheets against 6 people including Pakistan-based separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s close associate GM Bhat, Mohammad Siddiq Gani, Ghulam Gillani Lilu and Farooq Ahmed Dugga. The NIA has filed charge sheet against two others – Mohammed Maqbool Pandit and Bhat in this regard, but both of them are absconding. The Red Corner Notice of Interpol has also been issued against them.

In addition to being the head of the terrorist organization Hizbul Mujahideen, Salahuddin is also the President of United Jihad Council (UJC), a group of terrorist organizations in the Kashmir Valley. In this case, NIA has arrested 10 people, including close relatives of Gilani and colleagues.
