New Delhi, Feb 04: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will question former J&K MLA Sheikh Abdul Rashid for his links with self-styled Hizbul Mujahideen commander Naveed ‘Babu’, arrested along with suspended Jammu and Kashmir Police DSP Davinder Singh.
Rashid, popularly known as ‘Rashid Engineer’ and leader of the Awami Ittehad Party (AIP), contested as an Independent candidate in the 2014 Assembly constituency from Langate in North Kashmir.
The 16 prisoners lodged in the Srinagar central jail are now being shifted to other prisons in Jammu and Kashmir. This decision comes following the dramatic escape made by Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist, Naved alias Abu Hanzala from a Srinagar hospital earlier this week.
Naved alias Abu Hanzala has surfaced on the social media, just three days after he escaped from a hospital in Srinagar. In the photograph he is seen holding an AK-47 rifle and posing with two of his Hizbul Mujahideen counterparts, Sadam Paddar and Aadil Malik.
