The NIA on Wednesday continued questioning of hardline Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani‘s sons, Naeem and Naseem, to unearth how Pakistan sent cash to separatists for stoking unrest in the Kashmir Valley.

The agency is also questioning Faheem Ali, a Deputy Superintendent of Police who was personal security officer of Hurriyat Conference leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, and Devender Singh Behl, a lawyer associated with Geelani.

The questioning lasted for about eight hours and will continue on Thursday. Earlier on Tuesday, the NIA had questioned Geelani’s sons and Faheem Ali for 13 hours.

The NIA has arrested seven separatist leaders in connection with its probe into terror funding from Pakistan and militant groups based there.

Sources said the four being questioned may be cross-examined along with the four arrested separatists who are NIA custody.
