Srinagar, Nov 06: The State Investigation Agency Kashmir successfully presented a charge sheet against three accused persons in a terror funding case registered in Police Station CIK/SIA Kashmir.
A spokesman said that the accused individuals namely Danish Ahmad Koul and Faizan Ishtiyaq Kharadi, both residents of Srinagar, were found involved in raising funds from Saudi Arabia and Muscat Oman as part of a criminal conspiracy hatched with Pakistan-based terror handler namely Mohammad Farooq Abdul Aziz.
"The funds raised were pumped to support terrorist activities in J&K," he said.
The spokesman said that after strenuous investigation, SIA Kashmir gathered vital evidences against the accused persons and filed the charge sheet after the allegations were established against them in case FIR No.09/2021 u/s 13,17,18,20,38,39 and 40 of UA(P)A of P/S CIK/SIA Kashmir.
" Supplementary charge sheet was presented before the designated Court Srinagar. It is pertinent to mention here that the charge sheet against one more accused namely Hamaad Farooq Tramboo has already been presented before the court and he is presently facing trial," he said.
The spokesman said that during the investigation conducted by SIA Kashmir it was established that funds raised from the foreign soil were subsequently laundered through banking channels/money exchange and further deposited in the bank accounts of the family members of killed/active terrorists for sustenance of terrorism/secessionism and for furthering unlawful terrorist activities in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir.
"The money was chiefly channelized through the accounts of Hamaad Farooq Tramboo- a notorious OGW," he said.
The spokesman said that it is also in place to mention that the accused duo namely Danish Ahmad Koul and Faizan Ishtiyaq Kharadi were evading arrest for long and accordingly the SIA had opened Look Out Circulars (LOC) against them.
"Subsequently they were apprehended in the case and today the charge sheet was presented against them within the stipulated time, the statement said, adding that SIA Kashmir reiterates that its prosecution staff will vigorously follow the case before the Court to ensure that all the accused persons are brought to justice," the spokesman added.
