Farooq to NIA
‘Release Hurriyat leaders, probe money spent to weaken NC’
SRINAGAR, Sep 8: National Conference (NC) president Dr Farooq Abdullah today asked the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to release Hurriyat leaders and instead probe the money spent by the Indian government to weaken his party.

Addressing reporters on the sidelines of a function to mark death anniversary of his father Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, he said that the NIA raids are aimed at creating a turbulent situation in the Valley.

"I will consider these raids (valid) only if something substantial comes out. If it is just to scare them, then... I would like to tell the Government of India that no matter how much atrocities they commit, people here (in Kashmir) will not sell their ideals," said Abdullah.

He said that Hurriyat leaders should be released “so that they can tell Home Minister what they have to tell.”

He also asked the central probe agency to investigate the money spent by government to fragment NC.

Abdullah also took a dig at the BJP-led government for what he said trying to “muzzle voices raised against the RSS”.

He said journalist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead in Bengaluru because she wrote how “RSS was trying to divide the country”.
