Mirwaiz agrees to face NIA in Delhi

LSrinagar, Apr 7: In a significant development, Chairman Hurriyat (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has decided to go to Delhi to face the NIA questioning session, a spokesman of the amalgam said.
Last week, the NIA issued a third summon to Mirwaiz to appear for questioning in the case in New Delhi on April 8. Mirwaiz had earlier refused to travel to Delhi citing security concerns.
The spokesman said that the Mirwaiz will travel to Delhi for questioning.
However, he said, the executive members of APHC, comprising Prof. Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone and Masroor Abbas Ansari would accompany Mirwaiz to New Delhi.
“Despite repeated attempts to hold the investigation in Srinagar, the NIA has refused to conduct it in Srinagar and has said that it would take care of his (Mirwaiz) security concern. It is unfortunate that they did take into account and are insisting on investigation in Delhi. It has been decided in the meeting that all the executive members will accompany Mirwaiz to New Delhi for the investigation,” said the spokesman in the statement.
The decision was taken on Sunday during a crucial meeting at the residence of Mirwaiz in Nigeen, Srinagar.
However, the APHC did not say when would be flying to New Delhi.
“People are anguished and concerned for the Mirwaiz as their religious emotions are also attached to him besides him being a representative of their political sentiments. People are deeply anguished by the harassment of Mirwaiz. We urge all the people to stay calm and peaceful,” APHC said.
