Srinagar: National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday questioned People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Yasir Reshi in connection with the DSP Davinder Singh and Hizbul Mujahideen commander Naveed Babu’s arrest case.
Quoting unnamed sources, Kashmir News Trust (KNT) reported that Yasir Reshi was summoned to NIA office in Srinagar where he was thoroughly questioned.
Sources confirmed that Reshi appeared before the questioning team of NIA at Rajbagh.
However, Reshi has refuted the reports about his questioning, saying that it is a pressure tactic to force politicians into submission.
Reshi told KNT that he was not questioned related to police officer Davinder Singh. “I was summoned and made to wait for hours together but was not questioned,” he said adding that it is only a pressure tactic.
He refuted the reports that he was questioned by NIA. “I faced a lot of humiliation and was made to wait at the police station for hours together. It is all politics and nothing else, just to cow down those who don’t believe in a particular ideology and come to terms with those who are ruling the roost,” Reshi said.
Pertinently, NIA had earlier questioned PDP youth leader Waheed-ur-Rehman Parra on Monday at New Delhi in connection with the same case.
The Jammu and Kashmir Police officer, Davinder Singh, was arrested while ferrying two Hizbul Mujahideen militants, Naveed Babu and Altaf Ahmed, besides a lawyer in Mir Bazar area of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district in January this year. Singh is accused of being hand in glove with militants.
In past as well, NIA questioned different persons in this connection.
Yasir Reshi is the second PDP leader after Waheed-ur-Rehman Para who was summoned by the agency.
If sources are to be believed, more politicians are likely to be grilled in the coming days. KNT
