Pakistan offering scholarship to influence Kashmir students
Pakistan is offering scholarships to Kashmiri students to prepare a generation which will be inclined towards it and most of the youth on student visa in the neighbouring country were relatives of militants, the National Investigation Agency said in its chargesheet in the terror funding case.
“During the course of investigation, it was ascertained that students who were proceeding to Pakistan on student visas were either relatives of ex-militants or relatives of families of active militants who had indulged in various anti-national activities and had migrated to Pakistan or they were known to Hurriyat leaders,” it said.
The probe agency also claimed that their visa applications were recommended to the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi by various Hurriyat leaders including hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
The chargesheet filed in a court here on January 18 revealed that militants who fled to Pakistan had pursued their admission matters with the help of Hurriyat leaders based in Pakistan and Pakistan administered Kashmir.
The NIA has alleged that the separatists, arrested on July 24 last year, conspired with Saeed and Salahuddin to wage war against India and secede Jammu and Kashmir from India. All of them have been booked under stringent anti-terror laws.
The NIA also chargesheeted businessman Zahoor Ahmad Watali and two alleged stone pelters — Kamran and Javed Ahmed Bhat.
Watali has been associated with the LoC trade and has worked as the president of the LoC Traders’ Association in the past
