A Delhi Court on Friday ordered to frame charges against four Hizb-ul-Mujahideen terrorists, Mohd. Shafi Shah alias Doctor, Talib Lali, Muzzafar Ahmad Dar Mushtaq Ahmad Lone, observing prima facie material against them for receiving funds from Pakistan to plot terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir. They will be charged under the sections of criminal conspiracy, waging war against the country and UAPA.
Special Judge Parveen Singh, in his order, observed that the terror outfit had formed a frontal organization Jammu Kashmir Affectees Relief Trust (JKART), which purpose was to fund terror activities.
"Being based in Pakistan, documentary evidence such as the audit report of the trust is hard to come by. However, the protected witnesses have clearly disclosed and have prima facie established by their statements that JKART is the frontal organization of HM. Thus, a larger conspiracy to wage war against Government of India, to commit terrorist activities and funding of those terrorist activities have been prima facie established by evidence," the Court said.
NIA has registered a case on October 25, 2011, against Syed Salahuddin, Ameer (Hizb-ul-Mujahideen), Mehboob-ul-Haq, Masroor Dar, Masood Sarfaraz, Ameer (Hizb-e-Islami), and others.
