Pakistani officials were using suspended J&K cop to obtain sensitive
NEW DELHI: The National Investigation Agency on Monday filed a chargesheet against six people, including suspended Deputy Superintendent of Jammu and Kashmir Police Davender Singh, for alleged terror activities in the country. The agency said that Mr. Singh was in touch with certain officials of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi through secure social media platforms. The NIA chargesheet said that Singh was being groomed by the Pakistani officials for the purpose of obtaining sensitive information.
Besides Singh, the chargesheet also names banned Hizbul Mujahideen commander Syed Naveed Mushtaq alias Naveed Babu as well as the group’s alleged overground worker Irfan Shafi Mir and its member Rafi Ahmad Rather. The other two named are Tanveer Ahmad Wani, a trader, and Naveed Babu’s brother Syed Irfan Ahmad, officials said. In the chargesheet, the NIA said that Pakistan High Commission officials were in constant touch with Irfan Shafi Mir, who claims to be an advocate, and provided him funds to organize anti-national seminars in Jammu & Kashmir.
As per chargesheet, the accused were part of a conspiracy hatched by Hizbul Mujahideen and Pakistani state agencies to commit violent acts against India.
The NIA had taken over the terror case on January 18, a week after Singh was caught in south Kashmir while ferrying two terrorists out of the valley on January 11.
