Jammu, August 10, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the sleuths of India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested former member of the so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdul Rasheed, late Friday night. The two-time MLA from Langate area of Kupwara is the first pro-India politician to have been arrested by the NIA in a case filed against him charging him of supporting the militancy in the territory and providing funds for the purpose. Questioned in the case in 2017, he was again summoned earlier this week. Officials of NIA said that he was unable to give convincing replies to questions.
