NIA questions son-in-law of Syed Geelani for funding of terror, subversive activities in Kashmir

Altaf Ahmed Shah, son-in-law of hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, was on Monday questioned by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with its probe into the funding of terror and subversive activities in Kashmir.
Shah, popularly known as Altaf Fantoosh, was earlier questioned by the NIA on June 9 about his movable and other properties, including houses in the Valley as well as in Jammu, and the source for their funding, official sources said.
Shah, who arrived again at the NIA headquarters today, was questioned by a team of agency officials about the alleged funding of the Geelani-led Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, the sources said.
There was no immediate reaction from Shah’s camp but his father-in-law had yesterday questioned the role of the NIA and said the probe agency was being used as a “war weapon” against separatist leadership in Kashmir.
