Srinagar, Apr 7: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq will present himself before NIA in Delhi after third summon was issued last week.
In a statement, it said that Hurriyat Conference held a meeting on Sunday and decided that Mirwaiz will be accompanied by Hurriyat leaders to New Delhi for the investigation. They include Prof Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Ghani Lone and Masroor Abbas Ansari.
“APHC said that they know that people are anguished and concerned for the Mirwaiz as their religious emotions are also attached to him as Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir , besides him being a representative of their political sentiments,” it said.
The Hurriyat said people are deeply anguished by the harassment of Mirwaiz and urged them to stay calm and peaceful.
”Mirwaiz or any member of APHC has nothing to do with the so called funding case and it is sheer vindictiveness on the part of authorities,” it added.
