In a chargesheet that was filed by the NIA against Kashmiri businessman, Zahoor Watali it was stated that he had transacted with Malik. He got funds from the Pakistan High Commission and the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, the agency further said.
New Delhi, May 26: Life came a full cycle for terrorist/separatist Yasin Malik when a special court sentenced him to life in a terror funding case. It took a painstaking investigation to bring him to justice for the crimes he committed and managed to get away with during successive governments in the past.
The fact that he would launder money and then use it to fuel violence in Jammu and Kashmir apart from using it for his personal pleasures was a well known fact. However successive governments, some liberals and dishonest media turned a blind eye to the same as a result of which Malik enjoyed a free run. He was even once rescued by the Indian Army during the floods and once that was complete, he blatantly raised anti-India slogans.
Terror groups are not only planning to target the Yatra, but are also carrying out targeted killings to create a scare among the people so that they refrain from attending the Amarnath Yatra
New Delhi, May 18: The Union Home Minister has been holding a series of meetings following the targeted killing of Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and Kashmir.
While several derivatives of Pakistan such as the The Resistence Front and the Lashkar-e-Khalsa have claimed responsibility for the attack, the Intelligence assessment says that these are just diversionary tactics to help Pakistan get out of the grey list at the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
An officer tells OneIndia that if one has noticed that groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba or the Jaish-e-Mohammad have not claimed responsibility for any of the recent attacks in J&K.
New Delhi, May 17: Off late groups such as the Lashkar-e-Khalsa, the Freedom Fighter or the The Resistence Front have cropped up in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). These lesser known groups have been claiming credit for the recent attacks.
However the Intelligence agencies have learnt that these are deliberate tactics adopted by Rawalpindi to divert attention. An officer tells OneIndia that if one has noticed that groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba or the Jaish-e-Mohammad have not claimed responsibility for any of the recent attacks in J&K.
They are in unauthorised possession/involved in acquisition of key assets for raising terror funds and working in active collaboration with international terrorist organisation including Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Al Qaeda (AQ).

The case on hand relates to terror funding.
The NIA judge, Praveen Singh said that the above analysis reflects that the statements of witnesses and documentary evidence have connected almost all the accused with each other and to a common object of secession, to the commonality of means they were to use, their close association to terrorist/terrorist organisations under the guiding hand and funding of Pakistani establishment.
New Delhi, Mar 12: The security forces in Jammu and Kashmir have gunned down four terrorists in three separate encounters.

New Delhi, Mar 05: Pakistan has once again been retained in the Grey List by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). The country was told that it needed to do more in probing and prosecuting senior leaders and commanders of the UN designated terrorist groups for terror financing.
Pakistan has repeatedly failed to act against its proxies such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad. Pakistan also has failed to act against the many members of this outfit and has only made symbolic arrests of the chiefs of these groups when the heat is raised on it.
Several terrorists of both the above mentioned groups involved in attacks such as the one in Mumbai and Pulwama are walking around scot free. Operatives such as Sajid Mir who have played a crucial role in the Mumbai 26/11 attacks do not exist under Pakistan’s radar. Islamabad in fact till date denies the existence of this person.
New Delhi, Feb 19: The National Investigation Agency arrested its former Superintendent of Police and IPS officer Arvind Digvijay Negi on the ground that he was leaking secret documents to the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
The case was registered by the NIA in November last year and it pertains to the spread of the network of the over ground workers of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. Earlier six persons had been arrested by the agency in connection with the case.
