New Delhi, October 23, 2019 (PPI-OT): A court in Delhi, today, took cognizance of a supplementary charge sheet filed by India’s infamous National Investigation Agency (NIA) against Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik and others in a fake case registered against them in 2017. Additional Sessions Judge Rakesh Syal took cognizance of the final report which also names Hurriyat leaders Asiya Andrabi, Shabir Shah and Masarat Alam Bhat as accused.
In an in-camera proceeding, the court also extended the judicial custody of some of the accused till November 7 after they appeared before it through video-conference due to security issues, the court sources said. The charge sheet also names former member of the so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Rashid. The JKLF chief was arrested by the NIA in April 10, 2019, in connection with the fake case.
