Separatist leader Yasin Malik convicted by NIA court

NIA authorities will have to assess his financial situation and arguments on the quantum of the sentence will be heard on May 25.

Kashmiri separatist leader, Yasin Malik, has been convicted by National Investigating Agency (NIA) court in Delhi after he previously plead guilty in a terror funding case.

NIA authorities will have to assess his financial situation and arguments on the quantum of the sentence will be heard on May 25.

Media reports say that Malik has been asked to submit an affidavit with a detailed account of his financial assets by the next hearing. The length and extent of the Kashmiri separatist leader’s sentence will be decided at the next hearing.

On May 10, Mohammad Yasin Malik pleaded guilty to all the charges, including those under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) before the Delhi court in connection with the terror funding case of Jammu and Kashmir.

The case linked with Malik is related to alleged terrorist and secessionist activities that disturbed the Kashmir valley in 2017. In the previous hearing, Malik had decided not to contest the charges leveled against him by the NIA.

The charges leveled against him in the J&K terror funding case include section 16 (terrorist act), 17 (raising funds for the terrorist act), 18 (conspiracy to commit terrorist act), and 20 (being member of terrorist gang or organisation) of the UAPA and sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and 124-A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code.
